"Stalin loved cake buildings"

splendid phrase.

is a novel better because it was written with a quill and ink, a fountain pen, a biro, a pencil, a typewriter, a word-processor ?

to produce a "cut-and-paste" novel would be easier using a word-processor, so long as nobody wanted to try and read it.

what matters is the amount of effort and understanding that goes into creating a building to a particular brief.

As Per knows, computers are often used in boat design, but heaven help the sailor who goes out in one that is not designed with a proper understanding of its function.

computers are a great design tool, but they are not more than that.
