Red Burns, ‘Godmother of Silicon Alley,’ Dies at 88 -
'“To me, the computer is just another tool,” Ms. Burns once said. “It’s like a pen'. You have to have a pen, and to know penmanship, but neither will write the book for you."' A lovely obituary, but also, what a quotation - a nice corollary to the ones I usually wheel out about literacy.
