Tribute to Copy ‘n Paste

Friday, February 4th, 2005 · No Comments

A modest proposal: The copy ‘n paste feature built in to every modern computer should be awarded the greatest computing feature ever. Think about it.

Besides typing and mousing, what feature do you use more often than any other? Does a day go by without using copy ‘n paste? What other feature offers such an elegant blend of simplicity and power? What function spans the divide between text and images as elegantly as the copy ‘n paste? Whether for work, school, or play, the copy ‘n paste is no doubt a silent but ubiquitous part of all our lives.

I hereby nominate copy ‘n paste to be the Grand Daddy Supreme of all computing features.
