Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace, Version 2.0

by Lawrence Lessig

Countering the common belief that cyberspace cannot be regulated, Lessig (Harvard Law School) argues that if anything, commerce is forging the Internet into a highly regulated domain. But neither direction is inevitable; it is up to citizens to decide what values and trade-offs of control hardware and software code is to embody.

The Code Book: How to Make it, Break it, Hack it, Crack it

by Simon Singh

It's known as the science of secrecy. Cryptography: the encoding and de coding of private information. And it is history's most fascinating story of intrigue and cunning. The battle between codemakers and codebreakers has been going on for centuries: from Julius Caesar and his Caesar cipher to the codebreaking achievements of the tenth-century Arabs; from the code used by Mary Queen of Scots in an attempt to dethrone Elizabeth I to Sir Francis Walsingham's decipherment of that code, which led to Mary's execution for treason; from the Germans' use of the Enigma machine for automatic encryption in the Second World War to Alan Turing's efforts to infiltrate Enigma, which contributed to the Allied victory. And the battle rages on. How private are your e-mail communications? How secure is sending your credit card information over the Internet? And how much secrecy will the government tolerate? Simon Singh follows the evolution of secret writing with a clarity that lets the reader enjoy the captivating story while easily absorbing the details of cryptography. Woven throughout are clear and concise illustrations of the processes of enciphering and deciphering. Accessible, compelling and timely, this international bestseller, now adapted for young people, is sure to make readers see the past- and the future-in a whole new way.

Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software

by Charles Petzold

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.

Codebreaker: The History of Codes and Ciphers, from the Ancient Pharaohs to Quantum Cryptography

by Stephen Pincock

"Codebreaker chronicles the story of codes -- from Julius Caesar and Mary Queen of Scots to quantum cryptography and the next generation -- and the historical events that have turned on them. But however eye-opening are the inner workings of the Caesar shift cipher or the codes of the Navajo Windtalkers, even more intriguing is the allure of unsolved codes. Codebreaker profiles some of those hailed as unbreakable, such as the magnificent Dorabella and Beale Ciphers and the Voynich manuscript." --BOOK JACKET.

Codename Revolution

by Steven Jones George Thiruvathukal

The Nintendo Wii, introduced in 2006, helped usher in a moment of retro-reinvention in video game play. This hugely popular console system, codenamed Revolution during development, signaled a turn away from fully immersive, time-consuming MMORPGs or forty-hour FPS games and back toward family fun in the living room. Players using the wireless motion-sensitive controller (the Wii Remote, or "Wiimote") play with their whole bodies, waving, swinging, swaying. The mimetic interface shifts attention from what's on the screen to what's happening in physical space. This book describes the Wii's impact in technological, social, and cultural terms, examining the Wii as a system of interrelated hardware and software that was consciously designed to promote social play in physical space. Each chapter of Codename Revolution focuses on a major component of the Wii as a platform: the console itself, designed to be low-powered and nimble; the iconic Wii Remote; Wii Fit Plus, and its controller, the Wii Balance Board; the Wii Channels interface and Nintendo's distribution system; and the Wii as a social platform that not only affords multiplayer options but also encourages social interaction in shared physical space. Finally, the authors connect the Wii's revolution in mimetic interface gaming--which eventually led to the release of Sony's Move and Microsoft's Kinect--to some of the economic and technological conditions that influence the possibility of making something new in this arena of computing and culture.

Codes and Automata

by Jean Berstel Dominique Perrin Christophe Reutenauer

This major revision of Berstel and Perrin's classic Theory of Codes has been rewritten with a more modern focus and a much broader coverage of the subject. The concept of unambiguous automata, which is intimately linked with that of codes, now plays a significant role throughout the book, reflecting developments of the last 20 years. This is complemented by a discussion of the connection between codes and automata, and new material from the field of symbolic dynamics. The authors have also explored links with more practical applications, including data compression and cryptography. The treatment remains self-contained: there is background material on discrete mathematics, algebra and theoretical computer science. The wealth of exercises and examples make it ideal for self-study or courses. In sum this is a comprehensive reference on the theory of variable-length codes and their relation to automata.
