I’ve been doing some thinking about writing and computer programming. Many centuries ago, writing was only those educated in it. It was seen as something that had no practical use beyond the recording of… well… records. It wasn’t something that ordinary people had to learn as knowing all of these little scribbles on paper (or vellum. or whatever) was not really something that had practical value. As long as someone could work hard and take orders, he was set. Now though, it’s rather different.
