Home computers will be common phenomenon in the future



Arnold Kanarick : scientist
"Human-computer interaction is the real growth area, Kanarick says. "I don't think it's too blue-sky to say that you'll find a computer in the American home by the year 2000. They're getting smaller and less expensive every year. One day computers will be running our houses, ordering our groceries, doing a thousand things we now do for ourselves."
"Interacting with them will be a common and casual thing, like using the telephone is today. No matter how automated the world becomes the machines will still be working for our convenience, and not the other way around."


Kanarick, A., (1978), "Between Man and Machine", Titusville Herald
