Mini rant, technology

Since when did computers learn languages?

Yeah, so it’s 2 AM and I’m awake, agonizing over the fact that systems like Javascript are programming languages. I’ve been relearning Java with codeacademy and I’ve noticed some odd things:

1. Computers speak English
This one sort of makes sense since English-speakers invented it, but now I get part of why learning English is such a big deal.
2. Well, only certain aspects of English and its common grammatical markings
Those semicolons…
3. Someone must have taught the computer the items in #2
This is the most troubling since I can’t figure out how someone created a system which goes from english > conputerese > action/output completed.

I would do some research, but it’s 2 AM and I have a plane to catch tommorow. Do me a favor and enlighten me as to the cause of this phenomenon. 🙂 Ciao

PS: I’ll even accept a lmgtfy (let me google that for you) link
