Y2K compliant SAP: "A Life in Code - A Personal History of Technology" By Ellen Ullman
Life in Code: A Personal History of Technology - Ellen Ullman

If you want to get a glimpse of what was the Y2K Bug craze in 1999 Ullman’s chapter on it is a must.


Millenniums may ask: “What was the Y2K bug?” Well, as one who was actively working in IT at the time, it basically was the number of seriously heavyweight IT-reliant- and IT-provider-based organizations running crapped out, moth-eaten, disaster-ready systems for critical public service and infrastructure functions, systems that were originally developed for Noah's GPSing around Ararat, beggars belief. The problem with the earlier Y2K and other system's potential 1970s-based clock issue and its siblings was and is their potential for cascading. The Y2K bug did, indeed, bite a lot of systems, but it did not go critical and ignite a runaway reaction. However, before the event absolutely no-one on the planet knew for sure whether it would or not.

Bone-in Meat Without the Meat: "Proust and the Squid" by Maryanne Wolf
Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the Reading Brain - Maryanne Wolf

“Will the split-second immediacy of information gained from a search engine and the sheer volume of what is available derail the slower, more deliberative processes that deepen our understanding of complex concepts, of another's inner thought processes, and of our own consciousness?"


In “Proust and the Squid by Maryanne Wolf”



Why wouldn't Amazon publish the ebook I wrote in 1986 on a ZX81 and posted to them saved on a cassette tape? On the other hand, I once (1988, I think) did the work for a non-linear dynamics paper on my Sinclair Spectrum, and produced the diagrams using the Spectrum's printer, which used sparks to burn dots in the silver coating of the paper, then photographing and enlarging them. It was submitted to the very snooty college journal. They accepted it but wondered if I couldn't make better diagrams. They published anyway when I said I couldn't. How I wish I could recover this. It’s in one of the floppy disk in my attic at home…I’ve still got several programming nuggets I developed at the time. One of them was a chess compiler in C. If I had the hardware to read that kind of media (I’ve still got the floppy disks, but I no longer have the drive that went along with them…), I could recover most of them too if I really set my mind to it. But I wouldn't regard it as worth the effort, so they'll eventually get lost without anyone ever knowing whether they are worth saving. Only me…A lot of forensics software aims to keep old formats readable - so incompatibility is the least of our worries. Books last for hundreds, even thousands of years. Modern storage media do not. 'Bit rot' is going to become a serious problem...

Transferable Skills: "Wired For Coding: How to Stand Out From The Crowd and Land Your First Job as a Developer" by William Bushee
Wired For Coding: How to Stand Out From The Crowd and Land Your First Job as a Developer - William Bushee

Whatever they are taught today will be obsolete tomorrow. But the concepts won't. Good programming requires the ability to break down a task, organise the steps in performing it, identify parts of the process that are common or repetitive so they can be bundled together, handed-off or delegated, etc. These concepts can be applied to any programming language, and indeed to many non-software activities. Educating youth does not drive wages down. It drives our economy up. China, India, and other countries are training youth in programming skills. Educating our youth means that they will be able to compete globally. This is the standard from the Right that we don't need to educate our youth, but instead fantasize about high-paying manufacturing jobs miraculously coming back. Many jobs, including new manufacturing jobs have an element of coding because they are automated. Other industries require coding skills to maintain web sites and keep computer systems running. Learning coding skills opens these doors. Coding teaches logic, an essential thought process. Learning to code, like learning anything, increases the brains ability to adapt to new environments which is essential to our survival as a species. We must invest in educating our youth. What coding does not teach is how to improve our non-code infrastructure and how to keep it running (that’s the stuff which actually moves things).

The Feyguard series by Anthea Sharp (and Feyland)
Spark - Anthea Sharp
Royal - Anthea Sharp
Marny: Feyguard Book 3 - Anthea Sharp

I recently finished reading the last of the books in the Feyguard series by Anthea Sharp - Marny. I first encountered the books about the magic world Feyland on Wattpad. Since I loved the first book, I wanted to read the rest of the series. Eventually, I bought both the first series - Feyland, then the second one too - Feyguard.

Basically both series are set in the (near?) future. There are computer games that you can enter, like Star Trek's Holodeck. Throughout the books you get to know several people and in the first book it's Jennet and Tam. At the beginning of the first book (later a sort of prequel) Jennet finds out that the game Feyland is connected to a real Fairyland, but not a cute Disneyland type of faerie, a really dark world where you can end up injured or even dead. And your injuries sustained in game can carry over to the real world. In the 'real' Feyland the main characters encounter various magical creatures, need to complete quests etc, rather like in a computer game, but of course here, the stakes are higher.

I liked the whole Feyland world. The 'real' world is very well done too. I also liked all the characters but I think my favorite was Marny. In the end, she gets her own book (book 3 of Feyguard).

The plot is fairly straightforward, but not in any way dull. If you don't like YA books you might not like this series, but it's a well written, well researched series of books and it's not too dark. If you like YA fantasy I think you'll like these two series. You can still read some of the books for free on Wattpad, so if you're there you might want to take a look.
