Some nice new things to stare at over at GLITCH ART. Hunt around in the blogs for some bits of sheer genius. Like this for example:

The computer is in control.

The computer can calculate up to 100 times faster than the male human brain.

The computer room can only be accessed by authorized personnel.

The magnetic tape contains all the data in binary zeros and ones.

Spool forwards, spool backwards to access memory in seconds.

Each line of computer programme codes must end with a carriage return.

The computer is programmed not to make an error.

Computers cannot yet match the human brain at chess, but in the year 2000 they might.

New peripherals such as the lightpen and joystick will make the keyboard obsolete.

Most typists can be trained to use the office computer in a few weeks.
