Basically, anything particularly useful that's done with computers is already done by massive superclusters that there can only be a few of in existence, or its tasks that have been done for ages by houses full of several people. It can be done by a single person with a PC, but giving them all a PC will not stack and only gets you repeated instances of those people doing the same thing over and over again. Ten million athletes will improve the world record only by milliseconds from the record of one million athletes. All it does is the athletes become less versed with anything else and become obtuse and preoccupied with their field, worse philosophers and worse voters.
Meanwhile, the only real innovation of personal computing is that once dumbed down enough we can now decrease the amount we actually have to commute to the same building to work.
