"...of the computer, we ask more. We ask not just about where we stand in nature, but about where we stand in the world of artifact. We search for a link between who we are and what we might create, between who we are and what, through our intimacy with our own creations, we might become." 
       [The Second Self: Computers and the Human Spirit", Sherry Turkle (1983). ]
