…Our current society is in the middle of…a revolution akin to the industrial revolution, where…information and the processing of that information through…computers has become the backbone of our progress.…The computer has changed the way we live, work, and think because computers are…vastly superior to humans in both how they process logic and how fast they can do it.…So let's…take a look at what computer logic is good at, what…tasks are best left to the silicon brain in our digital devices.…
Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is math.…Computers were originally created to do…computations and solve complex math problems…it would take far too long for the human brain to work through.…When you hear people talk about processor clock speed and…megahertz, what they're referring to is how many millions of…computing cycles a processor can go through in one second.…A task like producing the first 1,000 prime numbers…would take a modern computer a fraction of a second.…
But a human would be at it for a very long time.…
The core idea of logic is to create a system in which communication is clear, precise, and unambiguous, which is (or at least should be) the goal of any website or other communication.

- Comparing human and computer communication
- Speaking logically
- Using logical arguments
