TITLE: Building Things and Breaking Things Down AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: December 31, 2012 8:22 AM DESC: ----- BODY: As I look toward 2013, I've been thinking about Alan Kay's view of CS as science [ link ]:
I believe that the only kind of science computing can be is like the science of bridge building. Somebody has to build the bridges and other people have to tear them down and make better theories, and you have to keep on building bridges.
In 2013, what will I build? What will I break down, understand, and help others to understand better? One building project I have in mind is an interactive text. One analysis project in mind involves functional design patterns. -----
