“…because it shapes your capacity to understand what’s possible. [It's] like an apparently submissive servant that turns out to be a subversive that ultimately gains control of your mind.
“The computer is such a powerful instrument that it defines, after a while, what is possible for you. And what is possible is within the computer’s capacity. And while it seems at the beginning like this incredibly gifted and talented service it actually has a very limited intelligence. The brain is so much vaster than the computer, but, the computer is very insistent about what it’s good at. And before you know it it’s like being with somebody who has bad habits — you sort of fall into the bad habits and it begins to dominate the way you think about what is possible.”
— MILTON GLASER
Quoted from a thought-provoking interview with Milton Glaser.
