Re: Programming by Pictures - been a dream for a long, long time
"I think we can coin a new term "Garbage In, Garbage Out""
If anybody cares, that term is probably older than I am, first appearing in print in November of 1957. See the eighth paragraph, just under the second ellipses. No doubt it had been in the common vernacular of the techie set for quite some time before the Press noticed it.
But the concept goes back much, much further:
"On two occasions I have been asked, "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question." —Charles Babbage
