In the world I see around me, computers are used
- by shopkeepers for their accounts and inventories
- by engineers to design
- by artists to paint/compose etc
- by scientists to do science
- etc

In short computers seem to be able to model and control everything.
Does not seem so different from math does it?
And if you see the history of CS not different at all!
