Sample text

In computer writing, the tools you generate are processes; they simulate and decide. Smalltalk was part of this larger pursuit of ARPA, and later of Xerox PARC, that I called personal computing. There were so many people involved in each stage from the research communities that the accurate allocation of credit for ideas is intractably difficult. Instead, as Bob Barton liked to quote Goethe, we should ‘share in the excitement of discovery without vain attempts to claim priority’. : Programming languages can be categorized in a number of ways: imperative, applicative, logic-based, problem-oriented, etc.

This is what Humberto Maturana means by ‘structural coupling’, the two systems are not directly connected, in the sense that we are really pushing the pointer, but they are computing information in two different domains (computer hardware/software and human mind/brain), and in this instance the consensual domain of pointer pushing is constructed. In this example all the work is being done by the human mind, the computer is just being dumb, and of course is not trying to ‘make sense’ of what the human is doing, but in the case of two interacting systems, both of which are capable of learning (adjusting their internal operation as it were), then a more open-ended kind of structural coupling can emerge.

Later in the same text he refers to Bob Barton (the main designer of the B5000 and a professor at Utah), who mentioned: To start with, the student is a user and the machine is ‘out there’ doing its own thing (running an operating system like Windows or UNIX, providing services like word processors and graphics, talking to printers, networks and so on – all inscrutable activities going on under the hood). bng’ or whatever it might be. , but no matter. Into this text editor we are told to type: The basic principle of recursive design is to make the parts have the same power as the whole.
