Notes
  • Patrick: I agree that feedback is very valuable and can also be discouraging if not used with sufficient sensitivity. I am exploring feedback in software systems (modules and objects). The principles do not directly translate into something that can be used directly.

    I am exploring what would a software object say to its supplier of inputs by way of feedback in general terms. Is there any general way of dealing with such feedback? If yes, software can become very sensitive and adaptable without explicit participation by the programmer. Please take a look at TRUE FEEDBACK and give me some constructive FEEDBACK.
