I always hated math, that is why I turned to computers quite early.
They are the tools that stop us from having to deal with repetitive
calculations, much like a shovel is the tool that helps us not having
to touch dirt :)

IMHO we need a lot more of that thinking. For example: A web site is a
chance to communicate, sell products or solve problems of other human
beings. We do develop for the other human beings, not for the web
