    Interesting essay at:


    "This is not really a review of William Kent's book Data and Reality
    Basic Assumptions in Data Processing Reconsidered [1]. It is an article
    inspired by Kent. The category in which to put this essay is not clear.
    Where it should go in the index depends upon your point of view. These
    may seem minor points, but they are central issues here. As Kent
    asserts, people not involved with computers may find the subject
    trivial. "

    This essay includes a worked example of why it would be hard to count
    the number of books in a library.
