Chances are, you do some boring, repetitive data-related tasks at work
-- ones a computer could easily do, if only it was told how.

"At one desk, a tester is entering test data into a database by hand. At
another, a programmer is sifting through the output from a
version-control system, trying to find the file she wants. At a third, a
business analyst is copying data from a report into a spreadsheet. Why
are these people doing work that computers could do perfectly well?"
asks Brian Marick, author of the book "Everyday Scripting With Ruby."
