Subject: a game of adjectives In lapses from reading and writing, I have been making a list of qualities that at least for me characterise digital computing. This is an invitation to question and especially to contribute additional adjectives to the following list, keeping to single words wherever possible. Here it is so far: physical temporal finite discrete reductive fast interactive useful My own intention is not to be parsimonious, at least not in the beginning. We might eventually want to boil down a watery mixture to a stubbornly irreducible essence, or to group or categorise, but for now toss in whatever comes to mind. I promise to keep track and, when contributions peter out, to publish the result on Humanist. Let the game begin!
