Why program?

A comment I left here:

Why can't I get that in Radio without having to be a programmer?

Programming is the art of explaining to the computer what you want. The only ways to get a computer to do what you want are to (a) program, (b) hire a programmer to translate for you, or (c) never want anything new, useful, interesting, unique, etc, under the hope someone will have programmed something that does that already.

Asking "Why can't I do this without programming?" is tantamount to asking "Why do I have to have interesting ideas?"

That or I'm a victim of programmer badthink. That's certainly possible.
