Back in high school we had a “computer lab” where the 10 computers in the building lived that students could use a few times a year to type in a paper and then immediately print it out. In college I had a single “computer art” class that I did a few projects in but that was the extent of it. Somehow all of the painting and illustration classes got by without us having to use Microsoft Excel. This is why I was totally blindsided a few years after college when I was working on a website for a company and had to enter all the names and paths of images into a spreadsheet. “What is this never ending grid of rectangles and what do I do with it?”
