I'll venture two theories: 1) People involved in computing lack the social skills or inclination to interact with other people, or 2) People involved in computing have a view of the world that says it can be neatly ordered (modeled) and therefore all interactions reduced to computer programs. The need for human intervention violates this model and therefore introduces insecurity. Rather than deal with this insecurity, many people retreat further into their world, thinking they only need a better model. Long ago I thought it was (1), but that probably had more to do with me than other people. I now lean heavily toward (2). Refusal to look at contradictory evidence is a basic human trait, and drives everything from alchemy to religion to politics to dating to new shampoo. -- Ron
