“There is something about computers that is both fascinating and intimidating. […] they are like human machines with “super brains”. Some of them can even play music. On the other hand, we are inclined to be intimidated by their complex mechanisms and large arrays of blinking lights. You should do what scientists tell you to.”

I leave you for 2011 with these words of wisdom from How It Works… The Computer, a 1979 book by David Carey, scanned and posted on BoingBoing.net yesterday. Do you know enough about the workings of a computer to spot the photoshop jobs? Original scans here.

See you in 2012, for which my New Year’s resolution is to write more! Happy holidays!
