Kevin: this may have been reviewed time and again, I don't know; I'm fairly new here. Computers are marvelous. By computers I mean the machines and the programs: Microstation, Autocad, and Photoshop. In other words, the basic programs that are responsible for maybe 90% of architectural drawing (within my frame of reference). The point was that the efficiency that these kinds of products promised is usually not there, for all the reasons I mentioned. That is not to say that we should go back to hand drawing, but rather a heads up to the idea that it is possible for a fairly sophisticated population to be lured away (as with the maiden on the rocks) from its goal (efficiency), by its attraction to the sexiness of the means. Obviously this is not always the case, but it is enough to deserve some questioning.
