|There is is no reason for any individual to have a computer in their home.
-- Ken Olsen (President of Digital Equipment Corporation),
Convention of the World Future Society, in Boston, 1977
If Ken Olsen had been right life would be very different today. With no home computers what would we be doing now? I can not imagine modern society in any form without having a computer available to a lot of people in their homes. What do you think it would be like? I just can not imagine it. Would we be better off? Would we be in a worse situation?

Many older people including my parents do not have a computer in their home. They manage just fine without it. For myself, my business would be more difficult without one.

I know there are many of an older generation that do not, but I just can't see a world where no one has a home computer.
