> erratums for this book can be found at the book’s website. In Latin, the plural of erratum is errata as is done with second declension neuter nouns in the nominative case. But I am writing in Modern English, and in Modern English we should be forming plural nouns by appending -s, or in cases of excess sibilance, -es. So, yes, erratums. Given a choice between progress and tradition, I am going with progress informed by the lessons of history. That is how things are made better.

@johnbessa I cannot follow you. What? 😄
@masoud I discovered complex structures when I needed to create a database for my performance collection system back in 95 - I used perl complex structures and build a whole data server that relied on (then advanced) HP Unix virtual file systems - self scaling - then learned that is how the mind works - If I didn't have to do that I would have been using relational tables in RDMS's and never would have known about what is now called 'self-concept' self-esteem, -agency, -efficacy etc
@masoud that was all in Perl
@masoud here is how I applied it to addiction studies - self-esteem vs -agency https://empathy-model.blogspot.com/2011/06/wiki-self-and-group-dynamics-in-mutual.html
@masoud so many analogies between compt/network and humanity/society - but computers will never have a soul, likeable nonetheless :)
@masoud oh forgot - aristotle and hippocrates invented the relational table for hippocrates 'biles' (nonsense psychology, but there you have it, the RDBMS) kid woke up
