I do not do anything with computers, although one of my little results in mathematical logic has become a tool of the computer theory, the Quine McCluskey principle. And corresponds to terminals in series, or to those in parallel, so that if you simplify mathematical logical steps, you have simplified your wiring.
I arrived at it not from an interest in computers, but as a pedagogical device, a slick way of introducing that way of teaching mathematical logic.

Willard Van Orman Quine, author of The Web of Belief ,whom I had the honor and pleasure of attending, as one of the audience at one of his lectures at the UB, in Europe. Circa the late eighties or early nineties, who minds. Who knows.
