Mass produced software (MPS) is one that put the emphasis on the cranks and bolts of a large machines, that is hard to start and even harder to stop. It is about anomaly detection, about the reduction of individualism. About robots and humans that stand in lines, about hips of data perfectly pile up against … Continue reading Mass Produced Software

The data is store remotely, the utility is hiding behind a propriety door (gatekeeper), the human is the one seeking that door, with a key (account, authentication), and behind that gated … Continue reading Machine to Human, Instead of Human to Machine
