"I would ask my computer to find me a perfect husband. I would tell it to tell me where to find the prettiest clothes and tell me where to get my hair done. Tell me where the most famous restaurant is in the world. Then I would meet my future husband, get married, have children — two, named Ben and Angie — then I would get a divorce and raise my children on my own until they’re grown. And then it’s just me and my computer. All alone again."
— A 7th grade female describing herself using a computer at age 30, quoted by Nancy Kreinberg and Elizabeth K. Stage, “EQUALS in Computer Technology,” in The Technological Woman: Interfacing with Tomorrow
