Are We Becoming Like Computer?

Saturday, January 5th, 2008

Think of the way we txt. Its like a computer language in some ways. For one, you wouldn’t speak in txt. The only thing you can do with it is text.

That’s really the same with programming languages. They are understandable to humans and machines, but rarely are they spoken by humans.

The First Time I Geeked Out

Saturday, January 5th, 2008

I was just thinking. About the first time I ever geeked out. It was on this mac. It was still dad’s computer at that time. I came upstairs and sat down on this new leather chair dad bought. I think he got it so he could sit and be comfortable as he geeked out. Well, one day, he wasn’t using it. So I had it. I opened up an app called Comic Life. It came with the mac, and it lets you make your own comics out of pics and thought bubbles and action noises, etc. Really fun program. But I needed some pics to put in it. So, I opened up the Photo Booth app. I used the built-in camera on the computer to take pics of myself. Once I did that, I put them in to Comic Life.

That was sometime in the summer of 06. Now, I am a bona fide geek. Only a year and a half later, and I probably could have graduated from geek college if i had gone.

It all started with something so simple. And now, I actually think that source code makes for a good read. What happened?
