More on figuring out what I think is important

I’m realizing, everything I’m drawn to in computing, and in my old music, has to do with models of interaction. Listening to Alan Kay, and to the Erlang guy, and thinking about the pieces I’ve written, and why jazz is interesting, and so on. It’s all less about the entities involved, and more about how they interact.

Same with the political stuff. How do you devise systems that allow for the interaction of numbers of opaque entities over unreliable channels in real-time to move in an interesting and useful way from where you are to where you want to be?
