Summary 5: Code is Speech

In the article Code is Speech, Gabriella Coleman explains in great detail about coding, the language of computer programs. Now I’m not that into the technical side of computers and coding, but I found this article to be very interesting. Coleman does a great job in explaining how coding works and what it does. She also explains how, based on Seth Schoen’s view point, code is speech. I agree with her, code truly is speech. Its a way for computer programmers and app developers to communicate and create new things. Coleman does a great job tying in many examples and fact that code is speech. Although most of them were written years ago, these sources still seem to be pertinent in today’s internet and coding world.
