Towards a Squishy Computer

I’m interested in software ecosystems that are organic, open-ended, and evolving.

The internet is like this, and so is the web. My question is, how can we make more software like this? Squishy Computer is my personal lab notebook for exploring this question.

I like to look at living software ecosystems through the lenses of evolution and ecology. Every so often, I publish a newsletter containing project updates, ideas, design patterns, and snippets of books and papers.
