| Plus, even scripting is a great example of user as tool vs. computer

The difference here is just the syntax and syntax is not the hard part
of programming.  Sure, it seems like that is the big hurdle when
people are just starting to program, but once you know how to program
in an imperative language, you can pick up another one quite quickly
and with relatively little effort.
