I remember when I was a child, I would carefully take toys apart, trying to figure out how things work. Eventually I did, and it was a tragedy: suddenly everything needed improvement.
Then I discovered the computer. Aged ten, while a collective delusion held everyone in front of a screen, I was staring at another screen, programming my toys. A kind that finally worked.
More than 20 years later, I am still fascinated by how small pieces can be joined into complex entities, which are invisible but yet capable of changing our lives.
