Commentary on Software Use

Like when people use templates, this sense of user-friendliness taken perhaps too far. Well, ease-of-use is great and accessibility and all that but what value do we place on being able to write and design your own software? To be original or actually understand how a computer works? Some people seem to be oblivious to how original something is, how much work was put into it. This culture may work against itself a bit… Where are the programmers of tomorrow?

Seems related to the current obsession with celebrity, with being famous for being famous. You can create things from the ground up, including yourself.
