Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software | Charles Petzold
1 post | 3 reading | 3 to read
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 whos ever wondered about the secret inner life of computers and other smart machines. Its a cleverly illustrated and eminently comprehensible storyand along the way, youll discover youve gained a real context for understanding todays world of PCs, digital media, and the Internet. No matter what your level of technical savvy, CODE will charm youand perhaps even awaken the technophile within.

1) Hmm...right now I would say The Broken Earth trilogy by N.K. Jemisin but this changes all the time.
2) Battlestar Galactica reboot. At this point, can we call it the real BSG?
3) Ehhhh, not really. Baseball is fun to watch in person though.
4) Lunch date at Hops Burger Bar in Greensboro, NC!
5) I don‘t really know. We weren‘t close. I sorta doubt it though.
