By this point, I have synthesized a framework for modelling communication issues. I have begun deriving ethical principles from this framework, most notably the principles of receiver/sender symmetry and only humans communicate. Finally, I have demonstrated not only why software belongs in this new framework, but why software's "mutable expression" shatters the old frameworks and renders them literally meaningless. It is now time to expand the focus a little bit, and try to apply the framework to other issues, and see what more can be learned from a careful examination of the issues. Examining "privacy" will exercise the model well.
