Designed As Designer

If you are interested in design and especially design and architecture of software, and you have a philosophical bent, you will enjoy this essay… I can't even attempt to summarize it's content, and even the abstract from the paper itself is quite inscrutable:

"Conceptual integrity arises not (simply) from one mind or from a small number of agreeing resonant minds, but from sometimes hidden co-authors and the thing designed itself." (From Designed As Designer)

What can I tell you. The author is the Richard Gabriel, a luminary of the computer world. Here's the article: Designed as Designer.
