Doing the work
Science sometimes forgets Art.
But Art seems often to expect Science to use the servants' entrance.
I recently heard a famous poet wonder about the hypertext tools of the future. "Will poets have to become programmers?" she asked? The fear in her voice was tangible.
The same poet will tell you that anyone interested in poetry needs to read Dante.
Preferably in the original.
Learning medieval Italian is no obstacle, but programming -- that is a fate to be feared! This is deeply wrong.
Malt does more than Milton can,
To justify God's ways to man.
It's time for scientists to remember that science is culture, too.
