a spell, a revelation: reshaping computation, by hand and with care

I haven't enjoyed learning about computers this much since neopets in 2005.

I feel the same! But never played neopets...or had a myspace. I have tried learning to code on my own through online resources. But I always felt frustrated and incapable because of the way material is taught.

I like the concept of herd immunity alot. Perhaps a spell we can implement is whatever we learn is easily transferable to our immediate community. A way to disemminate things in secret, like a whisper.

"Can a computer exist at a place that's neither under or over the people that use them?"

(honestly there's so many this one struck me the most today)
