assbot: Software and Mind: The Mechanistic Myth and Its Consequences ... ( http://bit.ly/1EYM805 )
decimation: "In this book we are concerned with one particular myth – the mechanistic myth; and we are especially concerned with its latest manifestation – the software myth. Mechanism is the belief that everything can be represented as a hierarchical structure; that is, as a structure of things within things."
mircea_popescu: that's a particularly inept statement of mechanism.
decimation: that's what I thought
mircea_popescu: linear interactions.
mircea_popescu: that everything can be put into a tree is a trivial bit of graph theory.
decimation: apparently he goes on for 8 chapters about how this 'myth' is ruining western civilization
decimation: "We are aware of lost alternatives only if we once had them. If we had to abandon words, for example, and restrict ourselves to ready-made sentences and ideas, we would immediately recognize the dramatic impoverishment in language-related processes."
decimation: " But programming is a new human endeavour, and the software charlatans gained control of our software-related affairs, and restricted them, before we could discover all possible alternatives – all the ways that human minds can find to create and use software. Software controlled by an elite is the only software we have ever had, so we cannot know what we have lost."

asciilifeform: basic pattern, as in linked thread, folks see a problem. (typically, one that requires a certain amount of societal programming failing to anchor in the brain, or having been dislodged in one way or another) but do not have the constructive abilities to see anything but 'remove the cia microwave horn from the neighbour's balcony' as solution space
mircea_popescu: decimation someone here had written the algorithm for that.
decimation: yes, another quote: "Along with the mechanistic myth, our elites too have turned from good to 24 the mechanistic myth introduction bad. The elites defend the mechanistic myth because it is through this belief that they hold their privileged position."

mircea_popescu: hasn't even been investigated at any point, it's just revelation or something.
asciilifeform: they have more of a 'bad is privilege' thing

In just a few decades, organizations that have in fact little to offer us have attained so much power that they practically control society. As we will see in the course of this book, their power rests almost entirely on mechanistic software delusions, and on the stupidity engendered by these delusions."

mircea_popescu: pretty much all of the us consists of john smiths, rewriting the bible in their own name.
asciilifeform: tbh weizenbaum is in no sense the originator of the 'mega-computerized bureaucracy will crush all souls' meme
decimation: "Application development, thus, will soon require no programmers. An analyst or manager will specify the requirements by interacting with a sophisti- cated development system, and the computer will do the rest: “There is a major revolution happening in software and system design.... The revolution is the replacement of manual design and coding with automated design and coding.”Ñ "

mircea_popescu: ajaja
mircea_popescu: The reason Dr Green is not a salaried academic is partly because her ideas are out of sympathy with the prevailing intellectual climate, but also because her education was ruined. A child prodigy, she was the victim of a hostile state education system, and an unsympathetic college when she was an undergraduate at Oxford. She is uniquely suited to doing research, and could be making significant progress in several areas
mircea_popescu: of knowledge if she was not hampered by her exiled position and lack of funding.

mircea_popescu: similarly the entertainment racket creates the superficial chumpatronic appearance that some chicks "have it easy"

mircea_popescu: Adlai the idea being that if you cache a link on the very place where the link is referenced, you can't have link rot because if the place is up it's up and if it's down there's no link anyway
