Understanding Block Semantics

I mentioned the notion of templates and exemplars.  I tried to explain the power of disclosures and showed how disclosures were related to templates and exemplers. I tied disclosures, templates, and exemplars into a bunch of other ideas and provided machine-readable metadata.

I mentioned that there was one more important piece of the puzzle, the notion of the Block.  Blocks are part of the "glue" that makes a lot of interesting functionallity work.

In the document Understanding Block Semantics I provide details of what Blocks are, how they work, and what they do.

If you are really trying to figure this stuff out, be aware of this page of my blog toward the bottom in the section "Information Specifically for Software Engineers".  I know that there is some redundancy and I know the set of information is not yet complete.  But I am getting there little by little.
