    The machines that software engineers build are every bit as complex as the cars and airplanes that mechanical engineers build, or the microchips that electrical engineers build.

    That's a gross oversimplification

      Absolutely agree, oversimplified to a point where I think it's just plainly wrong.

      Agreed. When you consider a transatlantic flight can produce over half a terabyte of data and that doesn't really take into consideration that non-data processing, mechanical complexities then this statement does seem slightly absurd. I would guess that my washing machine is probably a better comparison :)
