Gods of perlby throttle (Beadle)
|on Nov 04, 2004 at 16:58 UTC||Need Help??|
First of all, sorry for my typing and syntax errors.
Last year i read an article on an italian magazine (L'Espresso) that said that maybe the whole universe is a program and God is a programmer. This involves tw consequences:
1)(the silly one) Maybe god wrote
tar -xzf universe.tgz
2)(the semi-intelligent one) Maybe all programmers are Gods, in a certain way.
Now, what i think is that maybe is this that makes hackers and programmers love computers. You can make it do (almost) anything you want. It can wake you up instead of the alarm clock, it loves all the music you listen to and it doesn't get offended if you neglect it.
This doesn't mean that we must forget the real world and live only in a computer-related world. What i meant to say with this node is just that for someone (or something) we aren't useless and we are a sort of god of what at the moment is in front of us or on our knees. Computer is a great friend, but not the only one you have.
Think about it. We are gods...
