Los Angeles Political Correctness

There’s a very simple piece of computer terminology involved here. The control computer of a network is called the “master”, and a subordinate computer is called a “slave”. Well, not anymore. Not in Los Angeles County. Never mind if the terms have been used since the midmorning of computing or if it will require rewriting a lot of code and fiddling with a lot of hardware. Never mind the inconvenience to vendors and users alike. Never mind the expense to taxpayers, either. Because the PC will be served.
