Those of you now preparing to be software engineers will be the architects of computer systems which will profoundly influence life in the early twenty-first century. You will face challenges as large as those that brought us railroads, airplanes, and space travel. And as in all engineering disciplines, acceptable trade-offs will have to be made among economic factors, the laws of nature, and concern for safe and practical end results.
