Scaling down

Doing some research for my upcoming Programming Languages class I came across some articles by David N. Welton: "Articles by David N. Welton". The one titled "Downwardly Scalable Programming Languages" contains a quote to share.

"Good systems should be able to scale down as well as up. They should run on slower computers that don't have as much memory or disk storage as the latest models. Likewise, from the human point of view, downwardly scalable systems should also be small enough to learn and use without being an expert programmer."
