Fiction for Debugging: The Problem and The Solution

Monday, May 28th, 2012

After writing about music for debugging and founding software narratology I decided to start writing about fiction. The first masterpiece is The Sound and The Fury by William Faulkner. I confess that I’m in love with Folio Society books and when I saw this color version (an original idea by Faulkner now fulfilled by modern printing technology) I immediately recognized its importance for software trace analysis:

I’m pretty sure Faulkner would have been delighted to see trace analysis patterns and how they may help in writing fiction.
