I read this appeal and try to transport the idea to my collegues. (Digital) Meshware is not a well known English word in Germany. I can describe what it means in German, but I need a self-explaining word for reference.
A digital meshware or meshware (“relationnel” in French) is any set of rules, references, parameters and services that allow two or more networked nodes to interoperate between them via any kind of exchange protocol over a data link connecting them. Interoperating computer meshware contrasts with computer software, which is any set of machine-readable instructions that directs a digital processor to perform specific operations, and computer hardware, which is the physical component of computers.
What I think about:
- Verbundmaschine (Maschine shall transport the imagination of non-software, even if the microcontroller have their own "software")
Any further suggestions?
