My son-in-law assures me that the computer and the Internet are inanimate objects. They are metal and circuits and plastic and other materials and they contain no shred of humanity. They may wink and blink and bring me great satisfaction, but he insists that they are things, not people.

They do not feel or care or want to interfere. They simply exist. This man is bright and I give him all credit for his intelligent conclusion, but I still question his thinking. If my computer is just hunks of stuff with no brain, how come it knows so much?
