hi GH

a few days back you made a statement

"There is  always an author for the code"

Which I dont think is true and maybe introduces
other issues on performativity

one reference of course is dawkins blind
watchmaker argument- and is particularly relevant
to the work of algoricists such as john latham
where the code is self generating and the artist intervenes
in selection rather than design

and with much large code-there are innumerable authors
not an author

and then you go on:
there is a result from running the  code.

but like recessive genes, some code may only perform
when there is a confluence of factors that enable its
performance

Hi list,
I think  you need to look at  the whole coding process. There is
always an author for the code and there is a result from running the
code.
