Post-societal collapse, if you're part of a group that is building things back up from scratch, what is the task that makes you decide that you need to build a computer?

If there is a communication network to connect to then I think you build/scavenge a computer relatively early so you can communicate with other groups. If there's not a network, maybe you build it for some sort of record-keeping task much later?

Inspiration ↓ feed.grantcuster.com/post/2020 I think I get the draw of the PICO-8 more, with the stuff I've been exploring lately. I especially like that the sprite and code editors are built-in.

I like to find ways to expose the code and structure of my projects on the surface of the projects. Maybe I can connect that to a broader purpose of demystifying computers and software. Maybe I can pursue that purpose more deliberately.
