Sometimes We Need to Embed Meaning in a Computer Program

Information can be thought of as data that has meaning. Digging around the web I found some thing that people seem to think are involved in meaning. Data can be supplied with meaning through:
– description   – data semantics
– importance    – endemes                 (seriousness)
– relationship  – knowledge representation (causal)
– process
– community
– use-purpose
– security – access/permissions
– communication
– situation/setting/relevance
– logic/propositional logic/truth value
– function
– history/time/date
– event/noun/verb/adjective
– implementation
– commonness
– statistics
– grammar semantics/Chomskyan internalist semantics
– variables system
– text before and after it – “Words and sentences that occur before or after a word or sentence and imbue it with a particular meaning.”
– creator

These are mostly forms of context. The “theory of meaning” is discussed at Interesting keywords are meaning, context, importance, description, relationship, purpose.
