Before Computers And After Computers
Before computers were available individuals worked with paper and pencils to perform analysis on large amounts of information. Individuals are still using paper and pencil to perform analysis on large amounts of information even though they have computers.
About the only differences in performing analysis on large amounts of information after computers is that individuals no longer use green eye shades, and that individuals now have computer printers to feed their filing cabinets.
Perhaps at some point those in government will recall the ideas of using computers for “augmenting human intellect”.
