I have before claimed that the computer is
a good example of the power of semiosis.

It is simple enough to see that the mere 
construction of a Turing machine confers 
upon that machine the ability to recognise 
all computations; to generate the yield of 
such computations.

In this sense, a program (the source code)
is a sequence of signs that upon acceptance 
brings the machine to generate some 
corresponding yield; a computation.

Also, the intention of an entity behind sign 
origination has nothing whatsoever to do with 
the acceptability of that sign by some other 
entity, much less the meaning there taken for 
the sign.

The meaning of a sign is always centered upon 
the acceptor of that sign.
