    • Riffing off the above-the-API/below-the-API class distinction (a clever metaphor that is not really a metaphor).
    • Human interaction as formalized, ritualized. Goffman. Restaurant schema.
    • Business models as APIs (Miller, Drexler, etc)
    • Games people play, Knots
    • Somehow Freud and Deleuze fit into this I am quite sure.
    • Autistic social relations
    • It's a very I-It stance isn't it. I-Thou is not an API, it is not transactional but relational. Hm.
