*** On that note, Mikoto doesn't have her canon [[HollywoodHacking hacking]] [[{{Technopath}} abilities]]. The in-universe explanation is that she needs to know how computers and programming work in detail, and she's not a computer person. The out-of-universe reason is probably to avoid CastSpeciation with Uiharu.
