Local: Stata Center
What I do, explained using only the ten hundred words people use the most:

I help computers do the things people want them to do and try to fix them when they do things people don't want them to do. I help people who use computers to learn about computers and about how computers can do things that people do like speak and walk and move things. I especially help people use computers to send notes to each other. I work in a crazy building that looks like blocks knocked over.

(ToolOriginal inspiration.)

I find it interesting that "computer" seems to be one of the thousand most commonly used words. It was not so, once upon a time.

Indeed, when I was a child, I heard talk of "electronic brains". That was... half a century ago.

I find I rather miss the world of 1963, and I never thought I'd ever feel that way.
