General Abnormal Patterns of Structure and Behavior (Part 0)

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

Memory Analysis Patterns (MAPs) including memory dump, malware, software trace (TAPs), and other patterns and pattern catalogs from Software Diagnostics Institute form the very rich semantic network. Now it is possible (by using a metaphorical bijection) to create a catalog of General Patterns of Abnormal Structure and Behaviour including software, hardware, biological behavior including animal (ethology) and human behavior, sociological and historical behavior including economics, business and finance, ethics and law, and even behavior of chemical and physical systems. Such “GAPs of Structure and Behavior” may include wait chains, spikes, deadlocks, etc. We provide more specific examples in the forthcoming parts. So we are a few steps closer to realization of my old dangerous idea of a parameterized science of universal memory dumps by the so called science files or might event a general diagnostics discipline.

Software as Means of Production

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

The cover of the latest Economist issue arrived today picturing a third industrial revolution prompted me to write about Software as means of production that I was thinking for sometime and even created a Software Generalist Party you are welcome to join. Software generalists are the future driving force of society change and I started working on a work comparable to Marx’s Capital called Software, Volume 1 subtitled as A Critical Analysis of Industrial Production (ISBN: 978-1908043375). It will also include an analysis of new emerging commodities such as memories.

MVC Worldview and The Origin of Economic Order

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

A few weeks ago when I was asked about my opinion whether the current economic crisis will deepen an idea came to me that Cloud Computing is the last Model piece of MVC (Model-View-Controller) where View is Social Media such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. and Controller is Internet itself. With the final piece of the puzzle the World needs new MVC Revolution in order to get back on track.
