post-processes/ontologies: open eyes on technologies, economies, and politics

technologist, technology analyst, economist, and political analyst

After my previous blogs, I found that I began to see many things differently. It is not easy to summarize all those changes of mind and heart, so, I just put those job titles here.

Note that it is not just "processes" and "ontology" anymore, it is much "thick" now. I now believe the concept of "processes" misses the point. Ya, "processes" are important, but if you know those (8 core) techniques, you surely already know those "processes". "Processes" is simply experiences you gain when you use those "8 core techniques".

As for "ontology", they are extremely important; there is another phrase, "methodological analysis". Here, just like the concept of "ontology" in both computer science and philosophy, "methodological" can be interpreted as both the concept of "process" in software engineering, and a concept in philosophy that is in parallel with "metaphysical" and "epistemological". Combining "ontology" and "methodological analysis", you have all the conceptual tools to tackle any issues in our information age.

I know, all those sounds abstruse and philosophical. That is indeed the exact point I want to make next: they are important, but too abstract, for everyday thinking. To really apply "ontology" and "methodological analysis", we need concrete "examples", hence all those job titles -- we need to open our eyes, on technologies, economies, and politics.

I've got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.
