Bits are where you think they are. Tiny bits can show up any place. When you look at a bit, it stays the same. But when you look at a tiny bit, it changes. This is seriously weird to people. TINY-BIT-COMPUTERS use this to run very fast.

To make a computer work you need to tell it what to do, by writing your ideas in a way the computer can understand. This is hard, because you have to think like a computer and not like a person. Telling tiny-bit-computers what to do is even harder, because thinking like a tiny-bit-computer and not like a human is seriously hard. I look for ways to explain to tiny-bit-computers what we want in a way that is easier for humans to think about.

To do this I use STUDY-OF-THINGS-TALKING and STUDY-OF-GROUPS-OF-THINGS-TALKING.
