Microblogging is not my thing...

A few weeks ago I got a phone call from a client. They want to insource a mission-critical piece of code. I talked about the concept of Habitable Software and thought I could write something here.

As I started to write, words unfolded in unexpected rivers. Apparently, I've got too much to say [and too little time].

So, I tried to use a mind map to get an overview of what I was trying to say.

Here it is (click to get a full-scale pdf):

Strictly speaking, it's not even a mind map, as I drew a graph, not a tree. I find the tree format very limiting, which is probably a side-effect of keeping a lot of connections in my mind.

Another side effect is that I find micro-blogging unsatisfactory. Sure, I could post something like:

interesting book, take a look

and get over, but it's just not my style.

Anyway, I'll try to keep this short and just add a link to the presentation on form Vs. function that I mentioned in the mind map: Integrating Form and Function. Don't mind the LISP stuff :-). That thing about the essential and contingent interpreter is great.

More on all this another time, as I manage to unravel the fabric of my mind :-)
