Reply To: Lets nuke the computer whiz. . .
Computers are a necessary evil particularly so in the built environment.
I think people just don’t like computers for the simple reason that as soon as you get on top of a particular programme it becomes obselete and you have to start the learning process all over again.
Many IT professionals also coined it during the 1996-2000 Dotcom bubble and I think a lot of people are still suspicious of them. A lot of the arrogance hasn’t gone away with a lot of IT types.
Any body who calls themselves a whiz at anything should be nuked purely because such claims are by definition anti-social.
Having said all that the end product can be a revelation to planners and observers of the consent process if well executed.
