Critical Code Studies

    • A new subfield, I got pulled into a discussion group. The basic idea is to apply the tools of critical theory to software and technology, and specifically to code, the magic texts that make the computer world go.
    • Current relevant interests

      • Making one-off block languages for specialized DSLs including generative art (derived from Behave! and Scratch).
      • Understanding and managing scientific analysis code (from notebooks to reproducibility) and the relationship with science and scientific rhetoric
      • Understanding agency and its role in computation (as ever)
      • Current-wave hypertext and knowledge management tools like Roam (not very code related, except I am coding my own Goddinpotty , and the Roam-tools all have a plugin/extension culture which is interesting in terms of having code and text intermingled).
