Coder.
Code is just the result of a programmer programming; its like calling a Chef who makes food a "fooder".

57 2020-08-01 19:15

>>56
Good point, "coding" has the same connotation. At the same time, I can relate to it, because "coding" implicitly has a lower value than "programming", and it makes sense because the former just "produces" code, while the latter reasons about programms.

The key here is that it is ``programs'' with an ``s'' at the end.
That's why it works.

65 2020-08-10 18:37

Code is just the result of a programmer programming; its like calling a Chef who makes food a "fooder".

It's not like that at all. Let's examine that analogy:

Food is just the result of a fooder fooding

Can you see what's wrong with that phrase? ``Food'' is never a verb.
But with code:

Code is just the result of a coder coding. Perfectly grammatical and meaningful. ``Code,'' on the other hand, is---can be---a verb.

(There remains the point about whether being the result of coding---programming, as your preference may have it---is all that code is, but we'll not get into that involved topic.)

coding implicitly has a lower value than programming, because the former just produces code, while the latter reasons about programms.

Not so! To programme is to make a programme---be it encoded or in a sloppy form---but not necessarily to understand or reasons through it. Surely a good programmer would---rather, should---but experience suggests otherwise. On the other hand, one might code something other than a programme---a data structure, for instance. But there is a ``higher intellectual level'' associated with programming relative to coding---coding need only make it rigorous, making a good programme is a creative task---perhaps just composing extant programmes, but which? how?
Often something is to be programmed, and coded. One having both abilities may be more effective.

99% of users aren't even aware of the existence of a ``world wide web''. I don't believe most of them know what that Google Chrome app on their smartphone is for.

Yes but there's usually an abstract paraweapon for arguments like this, philosophers mostly use rasors. I don't know what would be used here. Something about scopes, trying to not touch logical fallacies and make this stale.

83 2020-08-23 04:09

Things that exist are Real. Natural things are those which come from nature, which is more closely meant "created without intent","pre-existing as is","without artificial components".

All things which come from chaos are chaos, order is an illusion in chaos.

I'm not sure that anything exists without causation. I'm also not sure that man made thing are so far from nature.

86 2020-08-24 16:09

I've two I particularly dislike: "proactive" and "gifting". Both are thoughtless inventions carrying the full baggage of the respective generations that invented them.
>>86
I think you're right — perhaps the only thing "artificial" (characterized by artifice) is the Abrahamic myth collectively committing us to the fallacy that we are fundamentally separate from nature.

>>87
Sometimes, in protest of jargon, it's possible to use the word in it's general sense, as suggested by it's composition. ``App'' is short of ``application.'' Originally, informaticists used that term to distinguish a general technique, for example as it is in a code library, from the application of that technique to a particular activity. Really, the term ``appliance'' would be more correct, but there's something aversive about thinking about sophisticated software, with a thing whose only feature is that it gets hot when turned on (a stove top), as the same thing. Of couse, ``app'' might be short for a whole number of other words that start with ``app-'' but there are already many things that are an application of a technique. For example, driving. That's an app. Suck on that jargonistas.

91 2020-08-30 02:18

>>86
Everything is natural---in the sense of being in nature. Because nature is everything. The problem is that some persons think that ``artificial'' and ``unnatural'' are synonymous. If it's artificial, it's made by man. Man exists in nature. And all things man made. By derogation, ``natural'' has come to mean ``wild'' or nigh thereof. (Eschew false arrogation.)
There is another sense of ``natural'' I much prefer (the other is nigh useless), that is more about fitting well with environs, or another. Natural landscaping blends in with nature. It's artificial, without clashing with it's environs. Not that such is not necessarily natural in arrogate sense of being nigh wild. Medieval forests were managed, safer for human visitors, with especial care to support the lives by which we profit---berries, mushrooms,, Not wild at all. But natural, in the `fitness' sense.

"human equivalent of a fly"

It doesn't compute. It almost computes, though, which makes it frustrating. Like, the cat equivalent of a dog would be... a loyal cat? Seems off. And flies aren't known to use racial slurs, anyway. At least, I've never seen one do it.

Maybe "moral insect" is what you're aiming at, but that could be interpreted as a well-behaved bug.
