Description: To set the stage for my remarks, I would like to tell a story I recently heard. The top management of a large corporation has just ordered installed two IBM machines in the accounting department. Two middle-aged men - the office manager and his assistant - received the news with some misgivings. They felt that things were progressing well in their office; the accounting was being done adequately at an acceptable cost by a room full of attractive secretaries. As these men viewed the attractive labor force, the manager was overheard to remark to his assistant, "Do we really want to replace all this with a computer?"
