I don't love the "computers are bad" meme personally. Poor computers! They get so much blame when they just want to help us do things.

I love computers. I feel like it's all the social stuff *surrounding* computers that's sad. Let's make that better, and work with our computer friends to do it in the process!

@cwebber "computers would be better if we used them better" was more compelling when I was in highschool and had hope

@cantinto well I'm twice over out of high school and have seen lots of highs and lows and I still believe in making the world better, despite being a pessimist in general

it's worth trying!

and in the meanwhile, for me at least, computing devices are one of the few things that bring me consistent joy. it's when the computers are locked down, barring us from working together, that things get frustrating and sad.

@cwebber @cantinto computers _are_ locked down and frustrating, but we have a group of people who have specialized in imagining that computers are limitless in potential
