This blog contains after some changes since Nov 2019 now the following main threads: a theoretical engineering thread dealing with the paradigm of Distributed Actor-Actor Interaction [DAAI], meanwhile extended to paradigms like Generative Cultural Anthropology [GCA] or Sociology as an empirical theory , a reviewing section to support a controlled exchange with important science positions, a case study section illustrating the application of DAAI to GCA or Sociology woth selected cases, a more practical thread dealing with the usage of the python programming language from scratch used for the DAAI and GCA applications, and finally a server case showing how we use the application software on a server platform with a python kernel.
Although these threads started in the past somehow independent, there exist certain relationships: the work with the theoretical engineering DAAI section triggered an increasing interaction between the engineering and all the other mentioned sections. The different examples from different fields called for a coherent place to describe these as Case Studies. The reviewing section has migrated from a philosophy blog written in German to enhance the theoretical considerations by making explicit which theoretical positions have influenced this uffmm blog. When you want to apply the DAAI, GCA or sociology theory in the real world you will need some computational assistance. Then You have to decide, which kind of an programming tool you will use for this. The main author of this blog decided some day in the past (although he didn’t like python for years) to use python. Learn python to understand why. Since January we indeed started our own web-platform with the python web-framework django. During the next months — first steps starting in December 2020 — this web-platform should become operational and visible.
