computer languages as communication

[ #35097 ]
From the State of the Onion

... a Text, whether spoken or written, is an act of communication requiring intelligence on both ends

.. and sometimes in the middle too. I don't want to talk to a stupid computer language. I want my computer language to understand the strings I type.

Writing a computer program is like having a conversation with a computer. Not only do you have to keep up your end of the conversation, you have to keep up the computer's end too.
