A thesis in alienation and reintegration
MetadataShow full item record
Back in September, as I sat at my computer staring at the blank screen, I realized something that really gave me hope. It occurred to me that my entire program existed within the keyboard at my fingertips. All letters, numbers, everything I would have to type was right there. All I had to do was hit the right keys in just the right order and ultimately, I would have the program from which to develop my architectural masterpiece. I began to move my hands over the keys but could not decide which ones to strike first. Then I thought of the great monkey question that goes something like, "If you sat an infinite number of monkeys down at an infinite number of type\vriters, is it possible that one of them could produce Shakespeare?" Well, I'm no monkey so I shut off the computer, made a few notes, and headed for the library where I began weeks of research. The result is the pages that follow. Enjoy.
