Excerpts: The wider the range of a piece of research the less adequately can any one worker deal with each of its specialized aspects. Breadth and depth compete for his attention and cannot both secure the whole of it. I am only too well aware how particularly this truism applies to the study presented here. The very words ´Unified Cosmology´ are both a challenge and a reminder that every conclusion arrived at has to be consistent with all the facts that have their appropriate place in every intellectual discipline. No conclusion here can be considered sufficiently tested by establishing its consistency with what is known in one branch of science only. Anyone who would make the most modest contribution to the unification of science should never claim to be writing specifically as a nuclear physicist, or as an astronomer, or as a relativist, or as a classical physicist, or as a mathematician, or as any other specialist whatever. When he does so he introduces a misplaced emphasis. He must never forget that knowledge acquired by himself in his own particular field of study is not necessarily more relevant, and may well be less so, than knowledge acquired by others in fields remote from his own. In order to find means of confirming or falsifying his conclusions, he must look for facts belonging to every branch of science to which he can obtain access. He must be prepared some day to be refuted by facts known to others, but of which he himself is still in total ignorance.
An exhilarating, elegant memoir and a significant polemic on how computers and algorithms shape our understanding of the world and of who we are Bitwise is a wondrous ode to the computer languages and codes that captured technologist David Auerbach´s imagination. With a philosopher´s sense of inquiry, Auerbach recounts his childhood spent drawing ferns with the programming language Logo on the Apple IIe, his adventures in early text-based video games, his education as an engineer, and his contributions to instant messaging technology developed for Microsoft and the servers powering Google´s data stores. A lifelong student of the systems that shape our lives-from the psychiatric taxonomy of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual to how Facebook tracks and profiles its users-Auerbach reflects on how he has experienced the algorithms that taxonomize human speech, knowledge, and behavior and that compel us to do the same. Into this exquisitely crafted, wide-ranging memoir of a life spent with code, Auerbach has woven an eye-opening and searing examination of the inescapable ways in which algorithms have both standardized and coarsened our lives. As we engineer ever more intricate technology to translate our experiences and narrow the gap that divides us from the machine, Auerbach argues, we willingly erase our nuances and our idiosyncrasies-precisely the things that make us human.

Facebook´s algorithms shaping the news. Uber´s cars flocking the streets. Revolution on Twitter and romance on Tinder. We live in a world constructed of computer code. Coders - software programmers - are the people who built it for us. And yet their worlds and minds are little known to outsiders. In Coders, Clive Thompson presents a brilliantly original anthropological reckoning with the most influential tribe in today´s world, interrogating who they are, how they think, what they value, what qualifies as greatness in their world, and what should give us pause. Clive Thompson takes us into the minds of coders, the most quietly influential people on the planet, in a journey into the heart of the machine - and the men and women who made it. ´Clive Thompson is more than a gifted reporter and writer. He is a brilliant social anthropologist. And, in this masterful book, he illuminates both the fascinating coders and the bewildering technological forces that are transforming the world in which we live.´ David Grann ´Clive Thompson is the ideal guide to who coders are, what they do, and how they wound up taking over the world. For a book this important, inspiring, and scary, it´s sinfully fun to read.´ Steven Levy ´Guiding readers through the under-covered history of programming´s female roots, Coders points with assurance to the inequities that have come to define coding today. Readable, revealing, and in many ways infuriating!´ Rebecca Traister ´Code shapes coders, and coders shape the code that changes how we think, every day of our lives. If you want to create a more humanistic digital world, read this book to get started.´ Sherry Turkle
What do flashlights, the British invasion, black cats, and seesaws have to do with computers? In CODE, they show us the ingenious ways we manipulate language and invent new means of communicating with each other. And through CODE, we see how this ingenuity and our very human compulsion to communicate have driven the technological innovations of the past two centuries. Using everyday objects and familiar language systems such as Braille and Morse code, author Charles Petzold weaves an illuminating narrative for anyone who´s ever wondered about the secret inner life of computers and other smart machines. It´s a cleverly illustrated and eminently comprehensible story?and along the way, you´ll discover you´ve gained a real context for understanding today´s world of PCs, digital media, and the Internet. No matter what your level of technical savvy, CODE will charm you?and perhaps even awaken the technophile within.
Tory Brennan - great niece of Dr Temperance Brennan - and the Virals return for their most terrifying adventure yet. But the tranquility is quickly shattered when Tory Brennan and her technophile gang discover a mysterious box buried in the ground. Can Tory and the Virals crack the code in time to save the city - and their own lives?
