Computers Are Useless Because They Only Give You Answers

Picasso said,

Computers are useless because they only give you answers.

That’s the thing about tools.

The canvas doesn’t tell you where to draw the lines.

The trumpet doesn’t tell you which notes to play.

The baseball bat doesn’t have a home-run switch.

On their own, every tool is useless. But in a pro’s hands, the right tool is useful.

Intensely. Imaginatively. Impressively. Infinitely. Irreverently.

The answers are black and white. The questions are where the colors are. Put it all together and the interesting comes out.

And, while that may not always require a human, it will always require humanity. That’s where our opportunity is.

Grab your tools and go be useful.
