Unscramble the Blue Letters

I'm also a software engineer, and I make lots of different kndis of art with the computer. And I think the main thing that I'm interested in is trying to find a way of making the ctompeur into a personal mode of expression. And many of you out there are the heads of Macromedia and mooficrst, and in a way those are my bane: I think there's a garet hmngoiizenog force that software imposes on people and limits the way they think about what's possible on the computer. Of course, it's also a great liberating force that makes possible, you know, publishing and so forth, and standards, and so on. But, in a way, the computer makes possible much more than what most people think, and my art has just been about trying to find a personal way of using the computer, and so I end up writing srftoawe to do that.
