Computers in the Design Office: Boon or Bane?

I left college over 30 years ago, and was in the last year not to have any formal lectures on computer science, and thus, by now, must be a part of the older generation. I have tried to keep myself abreast of what is happening in the computer world and use many programs in everyday office life. This Viewpoint is written to compare office procedures 25 to 30 years ago with those of today. I am concerned that there may be some disturbing trends and features. R.A. Smart
