As I go slowly my way through the kernel syllabus, I find gems like this one: "The practice of software begins to resemble closely the practice of memoria and, specifically, the memory theatres of Camillo, which constitute memory as a public space; a kind of virtual architecture for an incomplete image of the world. Software begins to look like the closest medium to memory itself we have produced." What do you think? How do do you personally perceive Software as Memory?

Comparing software to memory looks like a category error to me. Software is a medium, not a function. Like other media, software has become one of the substrates of our collective memory as a society.
