"Software as we now know it (importantly, software was not always software) conflates word with result, logos with action. The goal of software is to conflate an event with a written command. Software blurs the difference among human-readable code (readable because of another program), its machine-readable interpretation, and its execution by turning the word ‘program’ from a verb to a noun, by turning process in time into process in space, by turning execution into inscription — or at least attempting to do so. […]
"As I’ve argued elsewhere, this conflation of instruction or command with its product is also linked to software’s gendered, military history: in the military, there is supposed to be no difference between a command given and a command completed, especially to a ‘girl.’ The implication here is: execution does not matter — as in conceptual art, execution is a perfunctory affair; what really matters is the source."
