Willard,

just came across an in places imperfectly Englished, but interesting,
contribution for the HUMANIST list:

Turing Complete User
Olia Lialina, October 2012

 http://contemporary-home-computing.org/turing-complete-user/

... what I mean are users who have the ability to achieve their goals
regardless of the primary purpose of an application or device. Such users
will find a way to their aspiration without an app or utility programmed
specifically for it. The Universal user is not a super user, not half a
hacker. It is not an exotic type of user.

There can be different examples and levels of autonomy that users can
imagine for themselves, but the capacity to be universal is still in all
of us.

-- Best, Neven
