Writing and Validation of Historical Narratives (Part 1)

Software narratological approach can be useful for writing, analyzing and validating historical narratives. Trace and event log messages play the role of historical events where process ids are assigned to particular historical institutions and their representatives. Threads serve the role of historical entities like persons. Modules play the role of shared ideologies. We already use this approach for writing history books.

This can also work on a different level such as analyzing a history of debugging as a sequence of troubleshooting and debugging stories. More on this later as I plan to provide concrete examples from history. For the time being please read how software narratology and memoretics (the study of memory snapshots) help fiction writers as well.
