You could not, for instance, just decide ‘to start using a computer tomorrow’ without any prior experience and training by the experts – and expect that way of using a computer to be effective.
In spite of the current trend to sell technology to a mass market, as friendly, easy-to-use, intuitive, and ‘SMART’ ‘tools’ for everyone. It still remains the underlying truth, that computerisation, is a very right-brain activity.
It is all about systems and routines, from the largest grain of how it integrates into your daily life – down to the very tiniest grain, of how the programming language talks in 1s and 0s, to some dump piece of silicon engineering known commonly as the chip.
This computerisation as a ‘left-brain’ activity is a bit of a marketing tool really, to make you feel more attached to a certain brand name or product.
