Programming Reflections

Programming is essentially involved with the accumulation of information.  There are two types of information: data about the state of things, data about how to transform the data about the state of things.  Iow, by accumulation in that first sentence, I don’t just mean the accumulated information, but also the accumulating processes themselves (the information that defines them).  Ref Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus: 4.112, or Bootstrapps: Intro to Programming.
