Actually - it is still taught today - I think it is a 'timeless truth'

Consider the state of computing in the 1960's:
No personal computers -- that wouldn't happen until the late 1970's at the earliest. Only medium to large labs could afford mini-computers such as the PDP series. However as early as 1963, Dr. Douglas Engelbart had already demonstrated a system that used a mouse as a pointing device. But it was not until 1973 that the graphical user interface was developed, featuring windows, icons, menus and pointers. And not until the 1980's did graphical interfaces finally become available to consumers (albeit wealthy ones) on microcomputers.

Taken generally, the quote is saying that tools don't matter, only people, because people are creative, etc. Very nice. ...

Computers are a tool, and tools are useful. Anyone who would like to argue that they aren't needs a swift kick in the rear.
