This paper considers programming in relation to the International linguistics of Roy Harris and the Expanded Mind hypothesis of Andy Clark. It is argued that the use of the term 'language' when referring to programming is a category error that has implications for the practice of Software Art. Developing a practice of Software Art requires an open-ended and heterogeneous approach to coding involving a range of cognitive states.
