I Love Computers

“I’m just tired of people. Human. Cylon. Whatever.” — Galen Tyrol

Recent events have taught me one thing. People are selfish and greedy. I guess the Buddha was at least right about one thing. There is a reason why I personally prefer to deal with computers. Things are so much easier to do when you are just dealing with computers.

You see, with people, things are always fluid and dynamic. You need to do several orders of differentiation before you get a meaningful figure that you can deal with. With machines, everything is static. So, what you see is what you get.

That is why I think that our bureaucracy in Malaysia should be entirely computerised so that things are easy to deal with. The manual systems should just be kept as a secondary system to help those whom are less competent with computers.

The thing is that the bureaucracy will resist change – that is the nature of the beast. Too many people will have to lose out if everything is computerised. However, what we will get is a cleaner and meaner system.

Anyway, this is a vague rant for a reason. Don’t ask.
