Readers more fluent in German than I

Should hurry to this essay on Joseph Weizenbaum (pdf, found through wikipedia). I don’t have any problem with accompanying biography, but the essay on his philosophical position is a bit much when I can’t find the dictionary. But it has a great pull quote: “I’m not a critic of computers. Computers can’t do anything with criticism. I’m a critic of society.”

And now I suppose one of you — Robert, Bodil, Mrs T. — will be along to say I have mistranslated even _that._
