      Thank you, Patricia -- you as well! Thanks for all your illuminating contributions, and for your time and energy in community conversations.

      I meant to respond to your very interesting points on "Boundaries of Ethical Code and Coding" but became swamped -- I will try to add something there before the forum winds down for the year.

    Hey - I fear you may have forever coloured my understanding of that terminology! Ideas are dangerous things indeed - and not a little unsettling in this case :-)

    Hi Barry, I've really enjoyed your posts. And then I saw that part of your background involved theater! Are you going to by any chance be at PyCon this April?

    I am co-organizing the Art of Python this year (art about the practice of writing software rather than software creating art ie generative art) and was wondering if you have any interest in participating. I want to see a version of the null program performed as a Beckettian piece!

    If you have any thoughts or suggestions please let me know - its the second year we are doing this, and hope to have a series of workshops this year bringing together performers and technologists (hopefully sometimes they are the same people). If you want to be involved in any way let me know - http://artofpython.herokuapp.com/

      Hi @meredith.noelle.

      Thanks for reaching out. Presenting a null python program at an Art of Python workshop is intriguing, but I don't know that I can justify a cross-country trip for a single non-academic presentation. I'll keep an eye out for anything else happening in the northeast around that time that my employer would pay for, but for the moment I'll decline.

    The QuickDraw code is a phenomenal blast from the past. Is it worth adding the definition of DrawArc itself?

    Yeah, the behaviour of the comment buttons is a bit bizarre. I think the intent is to prevent someone posting in haste but occasionally the disabling of the "post" thing gets wedged.

    Hope my comment about elegance didn't come across as overly aggressive. Aesthetic responses to perceived structure - and how those express solutions to problems - are something I find fundamentally interesting. The better picture we have of how people form (and refine) their "instinctual" feeling for code, the better we are positioned to enable people at large to be able to "speak" effectively using it.

    amazon.html - that's a really great piece of work. (That's not a particularly critical or insightful judgement, sorry - I just found it very effective.)

  • Hi, my name is Lesia and I'm working on my interdisciplinary PhD in Web Science at the University of Southampton. I'm researching creative text generation, with a focus on generated novels.

    I first came across CCS while researching for my BA thesis, and I was incredibly excited to find that it enabled me to bring together my fascination with dead/legacy programming languages, linguistics, the history of AI and computing, literature, and culture. And further, that a CCS approach can support my interest in investigating one area with the theoretical frameworks and tools from another.

    Looking forward to digging into the discussions here!
