276Re: [feyerabend-project] OOPSLA Workshop Invitation
- Oct 18, 2002I think that this is a good idea. The problem is that
our interests seem diverse (and perhaps divergent).
Can we create a manifesto that will result in a
coherent and somehow unified body of work?
I think it is possible. We have some commonalities: a
belief in technology, an appreciation for the human in
technology, and a generally broad view of "technology"
Perhaps, once we have a manifestoa, we should start
our own journal (e.g. "The Feyerabend Journal of
Computer Science Articles Previously Rejected as not
Computer Science-y Enough")?
