For reasons to be revealed in due time, I dusted ICES and decided to bring it back to active.

I don’t really know why, but I am feeling a little bit more theoretical about it, in the sense that I am willing to explore the nuances of the proposed models a little further than back in late 2006 (I left the project on suspended animation since Dec, 2006). Not that the models were not exhaustively thought about back then, but rethinking is like refactoring: both fun AND useful.

I am thinking of writing about such models, going through my own initial ideas to, firstly, create (even if quite slowly) a complete documentation of the details involved in the project and, secondly, just give all these ideas more rethinking… great insights expected.

It will not be an organized process and I will simply write about whatever I want and hopefully a sense of completeness and usefulness, expected in any good documentation project, will emerge!! … rings a bell?

Major rules:

  1. All documentation must be online; allways
  2. Each document must be independent and self sustained reading material; it should not depend on other articles
  3. I will try my best to make articles interesting even for those unfamiliar with the ICES framework; the OO nature of ICES should make it possible
