Join Bridge Winners
Teaching Beginners II

This is a correlary to Jeff's article same name.

What if we were to explain bridge as though it were a computer.  To make a computer work you must have the mechanical parts (electronics, chips, or whatever is done these days -- I think they are fooling around with chipless machines now.  Anyway, that's one part.  Then you have the other part, the instructions to make it work.  That's the programming.  Some things are hard-wired and essentially the same regardless of the program you choose to use.  Others are language dependent.  Different languages are created for different purposes.  Some just improve what's been done.  Others are very different.  That's kind of how bridge works. 

Any interest in pursuing this approach?  I'm trying to figure out a simple metaphor for introducing bridge to the plugged-in generation(s).
