Today, software and hardware together provide far more powerful factories than most statisticians realize, factories that many of today’s most able young people find exciting and worth learning about on their own. Their interest can help us greatly, if statistics starts to make much more nearly adequate use of the computer. However, if we fail to expand our uses, their interest in computers can cost us many of our best recruits, and set us back many years.” John Tukey, The technical tools of statistics, 1965, http://jstor.org/… via http://cm.bell-labs.com/…
