My only concern: Software IS Abstract

Like I said, it is there, in fact very much so. It's not top center, but not
everything can always be put top center, because then all we will ever get is
sound bites and mindless tweets. This is not put into small words or reduced to
140 characters, nor is it simplified for weak or disinterested minds. This is a
complex matter explained in depth with skill, honesty and integrity. A
"textbook example", in the literal sense of the phrase. It is not
"lies to children", the kind of over-simplifications that are
bordering on being wrong and dishonest because you don't expect the readers to
be able to handle anything resembling the truth.

I think the article is excellent, *but* at a high level, trying to reach an
intelligent audience we hope is there. If there are no smart, educated and open
minded people in the system asking for input here, we are really barking up the
wrong tree, but in that case I fear that no efforts will help against people who
just say "Patents good" and hand over a large lump of cash under the
table.

I believe in education. Let's hope our target audience does as well.

It's not as clear as you think. It is if this is
your field. For those outside, it could be
clearer.
