将文科情怀带入 "极客 "技术


我认为我们对计算机的主要贡献是将文科观点带入计算机的使用。如果你真的看看Macintosh的易用性,背后的动力不仅是给人们带来易用性 - 使当时更多的人可以使用计算机做非传统的事情 - 而且是给人们带来漂亮的字体和排版,给人们带来图形。。。使他们可以看到漂亮的照片、图片或艺术品,等等。。。帮助他们交流。。。我们的目标是为传统上极客技术和极客带来一个文科的视角和文科的大众


作为文科的计算机科学


在我看来……科学和计算机科学是文科,是每个人都应该知道使用的东西,至少在他们的生活中使用,而不应该被归于5%人使用如角落的东西。每个人都应该接触,每个人都应该在某种程度上掌握,这就是我们如何看待计算和计算设备。 


liberal arts :本义,自由人应具有的学识;引申义,文科

Computer Science Is A Liberal Art


On bringing liberal arts sensibilities to "geek" technology

"I think our major contribution [to computing] was in bringing a liberal arts point of view to the use of computers. If you really look at the ease of use of the Macintosh, the driving motivation behind that was to bring not only ease of use to people — so that many, many more people could use computers for nontraditional things at that time — but it was to bring beautiful fonts and typography to people, it was to bring graphics to people ... so that they could see beautiful photographs, or pictures, or artwork, et cetera ... to help them communicate. ... Our goal was to bring a liberal arts perspective and a liberal arts audience to what had traditionally been a very geeky technology and a very geeky audience. »


On computer science as a liberal art

"In my perspective ... science and computer science is a liberal art, it's something everyone should know how to use, at least, and harness in their life. It's not something that should be relegated to 5 percent of the population over in the corner. It's something that everybody should be exposed to and everyone should have mastery of to some extent, and that's how we viewed computation and these computation devices. »
