Misunderstanding Computers

Why do we insist on seeing the computer as a magic box for controlling other people?
Why do we want so much to control others when we won't control ourselves?

Computer memory is just fancy paper, CPUs are just fancy pens with fancy erasers, and the network is just a fancy backyard fence.
コンピュータの記憶というものはただ改良した紙ですし、CPU 何て特長ある筆に特殊の消しゴムがついたものにすぎないし、ネットワークそのものは裏庭の塀が少し拡大されたものぐらいです。

What am I doing here?

Why add another blog?

I'm not sure. I have a google site with the same name. But I'm stuck right now. Plenty of things I want to add, not sure how to organize them. Maybe having a blog for the same topic will get me unstuck.
