years into the First Computing Era some of us in the computing arena
have come to realize we have made a false start that cannnot be
fixed, and for us to finally be able to produce lasting, correct,
beautiful, usable, scalable, enjoyable software that stands the
tests of time and moral human endeaveor, we need to start over.
Perhaps we will be able to salvage some of what we have learned
from the First Era, but we expect almost everything except the most
mathematical and philosophical fundamentals to be brushed aside.
This workshop is one in a series (see www.dreamsongs.com for a complete
list of previous workshops) leading up to an event to reinvent computing.
For that event, a most diverse group of 75 people will be put together.
The result of the two-week event will be the first step toward a
roadmap for massive rebuilding of computing both as a theoretical
endeavor as a practice and toward a plan to accomplish it.
Just like the OOPSLA2001 Feyerabend workshop, this workshop will
focus on the very basics of OO since the basic philosophy behind
OO might definitely serve as a fertile soil of thoughts to be injected
into the Feyerabend project.
