i see what yer saying but i'm really thinking in terms of the mechanics
of thing. we built the mechanics of the computer, though no single
person understands every aspect. however, one can assemble a room of
maybe 20 smart people who as a whole do, and will all agree about how it
works. try doing that in the field of neuro-science. computers aren't a
mystery, people are.  though we know more and more about psychology and
brain function every day, we still don't know, as a brain function, why
and how art is made, or why and how a serial killer kills. we do know
exactly how and why a printer prints, how a genetic algoritm works, how
a behavioral algorithm emerges.

hey! i used the non-gender "it!" and to the individual beholder, a man
could look as good in a french maid's outfit as a woman, or a laptop. i
seem to recall a "jetson's" episode where rosie, the stalwart and loyal
old battleship houserobot was upgraded to a MUCH sexier model (in the
outfit) causing all kinds of grief for george, not to mention poor
little elroy. the robot was hot, but daughter judy was hotter.
