do any of the lovely digital preservation and CS educators on here have a favorite resource that explains or begins the question of "what is software?"

@The_BFOOL I really should have a recommendation... but I now really really want to write that haha

@andrewjbtw ooooooh thank you, this is about spot on (I'm assembling resources that elaborate on Emulation as a Service's semantic + technical distinction between "Software" and "Content/Objects")

also reminds me that there might be a relevant portion in the Preserving.exe report
