The Miser Project Is Being Repaved.

Migration to a new server introduced a number of problems that require repairs.  In addition to those defects, some older pages also need to be modified and reorganized for consistency across all The Miser Project.  While the site is being repaved to accomplish both kinds of improvements and upgrade to nfoCentrale-wide formatting, you may notice discrepancies and problems with links to site content.

Check the Site Repaving Project pages for additional details on the known defects and the approach to correction and upgrade. 

 

 

You've reached The Miser Project astraendo/ section.  This section is an experiment with web logs and their archives for communal articulation of the role of abstraction in computational systems and their application.  The inspiration for that is an insight that Ward Cunningham put into the blogosphere.  It is also designed to provide, in a crude way, a demonstration of collaborative articulation using web logs.

Astraendo is the Italian gerund, "abstracting," including in the sense of "taking away."  I chose that in honor of Giuseppe Peano, even though his groundbreaking work in the axiomatization of mathematics was written in Latin, which he was inspired to adapt as a precise language (without the grammar) for expression of mathematics.  This might be viewed as an early attempt at The Semantic Web, to some a cyber-age version of Liebnitz's Dream writ large. 

The initial conversation here is about Peano's arithmetic as a demonstration of abstraction in computation and the role of syntax, semantics, and the situation of meaning.  The notes can roam over all of the abstractions related to the Miser Project and beyond.

The current conversation:
Numbering Peano

In conjunction with the discussions, there are notes on the topics and collateral materials.  These are not a substitute for Miser Project notes.  The astraendo notes are best thought of as resources that may be distilled into Miser Project notes and other writings later on.

This web page is part of the engineering, construction management, maintenance, and infrastructure of the Miser Project web.  You are welcome to explore this and other construction-information pages.   You'll need your hard hat and safety shoes.

If you'd rather find out about Miser than admire the scaffolding, materials, and construction equipment on the site, go directly to the Miser Project entrance section.   If that doesn't work, return later.  Project content is blocked off whenever the construction crew is blasting in the area.
