We proffer a model of computation that encompasses a broad variety of contemporary generic models, such as cellular automata---including dynamic ones, and abstract state machines---incorporating, as they do, interaction and parallelism. We ponder what it means for such an intertwined system to be effective and note that the suggested framework is ideal for representing continuous-time and asynchronous systems.
