Columbine writes about talking to the Pixies in Alewife Bayou. What will decide how well we use computers isn't how many facts we can memorize about using Microsoft Word, but rather how well we talk to all of the little micro-apps which will do all our searching and organizing and such.

"You're going to end up learning the language of the pixies whether you like it or not. Do you use a search engine a lot? Several of them? D'you notice how they each like to be slapped and tickled a slightly different way? Are you beginning to get the hang of knowing the correct incantation to get what you want?"
