Winston Ewert wrote the first paper of 2014: Digital Irreducible Complexity: A Survey of Irreducible Complexity in Computer Simulations. I've just started to read it and I already have a problem with the last paragraph of his section on "Avida" (p. 3):
The parts in Avida are the individual steps in the process. If any of the steps in the process are missing, Avida will fail to calculate the EQU function. In this sense Pennock is correct, but we will discuss whether he is correct with respect to the other terms of Behe’s definition.

Isn't the EQU function the irreducibly complex system, and Avida just the environment in which it dwells?
