Book Review:

Verification and Validation in Systems Engineering
This book looks at how architecture frameworks use SysML and UML 2.0. Techniques are classified as informal, static, dynamic or formal. These use inspection, testing, simulation, reference model equivalence checking and theorem proving. It proposes a unified approach to evaluate designs, including comparative metrics and procedures There is a case study of an ATM. Semantics, probabilistic behavior and performance analysis of activity diagrams are considered using the PRISM model. There are thirteen chapters.

Convotrack recently announced ability to identify popular socnet posts about a page. Social media seems to be finding its way into post-web2.0 domains. Test Information Space led to meta-test approaches where data characterized by observers for decision and action was used beyond original intent. This revealed a functional map, or filter, and a social aspect to linked data. Seen in this mode, activities can be attached to network models. Had some discussion of virtual collaboration on LinkedIn and Twine. Question also posted to Twitter and Livescribe. These stream to other sites such as FriendFeed and Delicious for additional storage, search, comment, tagging and forwarding. Problem-solving efforts may orient themselves by reorganizing data to and from these sources or add additional services within or around them. The existence of conclusions can be reported to concerned subjects so they can be reviewed and secret items not adversely affect academic, civic, financial, professional, medical, or other decision-makers which can occur in both hierarchical or distributed systems. An analogy might be to look neither at finger or moon, but at who is looking. In response to cybersecurity mandates, the internet may soon add additional compartments and layers. Whether this makes it safer, or disconnected networks return, is yet to be seen. Ultimately, the maze may be to hold the bull itself.

Recent titles of interest included Allemang 2008 on semantic web; Friedenthal 2008 on SysML; Alag 2008 on collective intelligence; and Rainsberger 2004 on JUnit.
