If semiotics is all about writers like Humberto Eco, then it's a little far
afield even for my tastes.

Now, if Eco had written about say, how we name data, I might have read him
a little more.

Let's say that Humberto Eco wrote a paper on practical considerations to
consider when choosing a primary key for a table, if there is more than one
suitable candidate key. I probably would have read such a paper.

Then again, if Humberto Eco had written a paper on this subject, he might
have entitled it "The name of the rows." (little joke).

Among the original contributors to the field were folks like the logician
Charles Sanders Peirce and the famous linguist Ferdinand de Saussure who is
considered to be the founder og the modern linguistics. Recently,
semiotics has been polluted (or improved upon depending on the point of
view) by people like Derrida (see Sokal's hoax).

As to Umberto Eco, I am no familiar with his work as a semiotician (as
opposed to his literary contributions).
