1. Quote of the Week

[Do] formalized languages need the definition of data types? Up to now I have not read strong arguments against my statement that for interpretation and operation on data the use of character strings is sufficient when
  • All data are expressed as character strings that are explicitly based in language communities, whereas the character strings denote concepts that are represented by UID's;
  • The denoted concepts are defined by their supertype concepts (among others);
  • Collections of allowed qualitative concepts (that are denoted by string values or value ranges) are defined to enable the specification of constraints;
