  • Deat Richard Wettle,

    congratulations for this great presentation.

    In 1995, as the director of the European Softwre Institute (ESI), I wanted a youg software engineer (Boris Groth) to find such solution, because I was convinced that such visualisation is needed also for argueing the complexity of software versus decision makers.

    Does there exist any metrics which allows to 'compare' software cnstructs to the structural complexity of buildings / urban constructs?

    Kind regards

The issue was that I was new to the project and had committed quite a few additions to Jmol thinking that M. was monitoring; as it turned out he found my additions too much too fast, and because there was a problem with the graphics display module g3d that resulted in some slow performance, he opted to revert to an earlier state. In the end it turned out to be a recent addition to transparency in the graphics, not anything I had done, that caused the problem. In any case, we did sort of start over -- or at least I did.” Richard Wettel and Michele Lanza Visual Exploration of Large-Scale System Evolution 27
