Joel Stewart: @BarnabyWalters All musical instruments?

@joelestewart hm, I suppose so. Instruments are mostly one-way though, with a performer transmitting culture to an audience — even if you consider composer to performer, that’s not so much through the instrument.

Whereas computers are direction-agnostic — one or multiple people can use them simultaneously to consume and create culture. I wonder if that’s one of the reasons why they don’t look like what they do.
