Review: The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood
There is so much horror and sadness in this world, by man and nature. Please make a general donation so funds can be distributed where most needed, not where the news media decides to focus tonight. If you can, also support PBS and NPR for less biased media coverage (It is my opinion that we all have some bias, we’re human. I think the public media provides a more balanced view than other news outlets). Of course there will always be voices on each side unheard, but for a three month old forever silenced in her sleep, even I will break my (political) silence to spread the words that she cannot. I don’t do political opinion well. I kindly ask that you please refrain from commenting about the above topics here. I will not moderate them through nor will I reply to them. Please feel free to comment about the book I pretend to review below. Thank you.
The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood
by James Gleick
An overview of my formal education to date in a nutshell with a sprinkling of quantum cryptography for fun. While each chapter is full of information I did not sense a cohesive braiding of the theme topics, perhaps it was not the plan, but I was disappointed in this omission.
