  • "A Wedding of Computer Science and P..."

    Overall

    Brian Christian has wed computer science and philosophy in “The Most Human Human: What Talking with Computers Teaches Us about What it Means to be Alive.” From this book I have received new insights from Artificial Intelligence, interpersonal communication, and simple conversation. This book links computers and computer science to group and individual identity which will shift the reader’s thinking certainly. Parenthetically, if you are planning to read Stephen Baker’s “Final Jeopardy: Man vs Machine and the Quest to Know Everything” you might want to read this book first. If you have completed that book, put Christian’s book on your reading list immediately. Well written, informative, and entertaining. Read expertly by the author.

    The Most Human Human is a provocative, exuberant, and profound exploration of the ways in which computers are reshaping our ideas of what it means to be human. Its starting point is the annual Turing Test, which pits artificial intelligence programs against people to determine if computers can "think". Named for computer pioneer Alan Turing, the Turing Test convenes a panel of judges who pose questions - ranging anywhere from celebrity gossip to moral conundrums - to hidden contestants in an attempt to discern which is human and which is a computer.

  • "Great Read"

    Overall

    Tim Wu, a scholar of technology, innovation and cyberspace has produced a very informative book which is timely in many ways. He relates in detail how communication technology has been guided by the profit motive and political actions during the last century and the current era. I have heard some of these stories before, but not in this context. If you are interested in or concerned about the direction that electronic media is taking in the US, this is the book for you. It is not light reading, but well worth the time spent. I found the first few chapters a little tedious largely because they were not covering what I was I thought were my interests. After a while, however, I realized what Wu was saying and by the last third of the book he had "my earlobes in his hands." I would, however, recommend that you listen to the Audible recording of Wu's earlier book, "Who Controls the Internet?", first for background. This book will fill in the details and more. Well written and accessible. Marc Vietor's narration is excellent.

    Could history repeat itself, with one giant entity taking control of American information? Most consider the Internet Age to be a moment of unprecedented freedom in communications and culture. But as Tim Wu shows, each major new medium, from telephone to cable, arrived on a similar wave of idealistic optimism only to become, eventually, the object of industrial consolidation profoundly affecting how Americans communicate.

  • "The World is Flat?"

    Overall

    "The World is Flat" and the "Lexus and the Olive Tree" sought to tell us why the internet would allow national boundaries to fall between countries. Essentially, Tim Wu and Jack Goldsmith explain why this prediction is not coming true. Goldsmith and Wu are two of America's leading scholars writing on cyberspace. Individuals interested in the current state and the future impact of cyberspace would benefit from a reading of their volume. Anyone who thinks that the internet should or can run unfettered -will find this volume an eye opener. The writing is clear and accessible. The reading of Bob Loza is excellent.

Christopher's greatest hits:
  • Where Wizards Stay Up Late: The Origins of the Internet

    "Great history of the internet"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    First thing you should know is that this book is a history of the origins of the internet that was written in the mid-1990s, so while the internet was sort of a big deal it was still a pretty small place compared to today. Also since this is a history of the origins of the internet, the fact it was written when it was doesn't matter.

    This is a history written more of a factual style than a novel style and it explains, in basic terms, a lot of the early technical issues and the resolutions to them. I have computer science degree and I've been creating websites since 1996 and didn't have any issue following what they were talking about, but I could certainly see how someone less knowledgeable on the subject might have a hard time following the terminology in audio format. Note again the author dumbs down most of it, but still if you don't know what they're talking about or don't understand something it might not be very interesting to you.

    Still I very much enjoyed the book and it's an amazing story knowing what we know today -- and it's amazing how different the world is since this book was written.

  • Mars Direct: Space Exploration, the Red Planet, and the Human Future

    "Great look at why we're not on Mars"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    “I have no desire to do a Mars landing on our own… The U.S. cannot always be the leader, but we can be the inspirational leader through international cooperation.”

    Those were the words of Obama's NASA chief Charles Bolden when asked about the agencies vision for landing humans on Mars in 2012.

    That quote was amazingly NOT in the book which is surprising since it pretty much sums up the current administrations view on anything to do with space, manned or not. To put it another way if your kid says they want to be an astronaut you should first start by getting them Russian language classes.

    To the other reviewer that is offended that the author of the book would dare to criticize Obama for cancelling Americas manned space program maybe you should spend less time reading bumper stickers and more time actually paying attention to the issues if you actually care space travel.

    The book is broken down into a few sections and it started off a bit slow but it hits its groove pretty quickly, which is a must in such a short book.

    The author wants to get Americans (or humans in general) to Mars and points out how it could be done NOW, and paints a very reasonable picture of how to do it. In fact a lot of what he talks about is what SpaceX just announced with its plan to send humans to Mars and back in 2018 (to orbit, not land on the planet).

    The author also takes a very harsh, and needed, look at the current administrations' complete lack of vision with NASA which apparently is offensive to people that value politics over space exploration and scientific achievement.

    Overall the book was a very good short read and the reader did a good job and was completely appropriate for the subject matter.

    If you're interested in realistic ways that people can walk on Mars in the near future this book explains it. If you're wondering why we have to fly our astronauts to Russia to get them to the ISS - you'll understand why, and why it's not going to change in the near future.

  • Super Mario: How Nintendo Conquered America

    "Good history of Mario"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I've read a number of other video game books but never listened to one -- the read does an incredible job on this. The book itself is quite good and even the biggest Nintendo nerd will learn something. Note to the author however, what's with the stupid Green Peace mention at the end? Completely out of place and annoying, but it's only like a minute or two so don't let that ruin the book. I would love to see the author do a full history of Nintendo, this covers a lot of it, but there is a lot of stuff missed as well since this focuses more of Mario. Highly recommend this to any video game / technology / child of the 80s nerd.

  • Physics of the Future: How Science Will Shape Human Destiny and Our Daily Lives by the Year 2100

    "Mostly good"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Michio Kaku is well known for making science books for the masses, in other words he dumbs it down -- however he often dumbs it down to a nearly insulting level. However, happily, I didn't really find that an issue with this book as it more or less just deals with what the future will be like -- and that's why I got it.

    I will say for a book that only came out a year ago some of it sounds really dated, basically he describes things like the Google Car and Google Glasses as being in the future, but they're already here. Other things however are so far out there it's hard to believe it will actually happen by 2100, like replicators for example.

    I think the read does a good job with the material and hits the appropriate tone.

    The book is entertaining even if it's a bit light on science. Also on the Global Warming just quoting controversial UN documents and stating it's indisputable absolutely sounded very very silly. That part of the book is flat out disgraceful. Kaku should have used that section to explain why he believes what he believes and what else might be causing it (cough SUN SPOTS). I'd be interested in hearing about other possibilities as well even if it was only to dispel it. Also pretending like the UN doesn't have a political agenda is silly.

    Anyways that part of the book isn't long enough to ruin it by any means.

    My score, 4 stars across the board. If you're looking an easy to read book about the future this does a pretty good job.

  • "Brand new Kurzweil book! ... Excell..."

    8 of 9 helpful votes

    I am currently 2 hours into the book and it is everything I hoped for - possibly the best audiobook I've listened to so far. I am a Ray Kurzweil fan. I've already listened to "The Singularity is Near", a book which contains a lot of data tables, that, in my opinion, kind of hampered the listening experience. This book on the other hand, has a straightforward narrative style that translates very well into the audio format. The reader speaks a bit slow for my taste, but that is a very minor complaint. The information in this book is fascinating. If you're a fan of science, technology and futurism, or if you are interested in the human mind and how it works, you will love this book.

    Ray Kurzweil, the bold futurist and author of the New York Times best seller The Singularity Is Near, is arguably today’s most influential technological visionary. A pioneering inventor and theorist, he has explored for decades how artificial intelligence can enrich and expand human capabilities. Now, in his much-anticipated How to Create a Mind, he takes this exploration to the next step: reverse-engineering the brain to understand precisely how it works, then applying that knowledge to create vastly intelligent machines.

Warnings of various and imminent environmental consequences dominated the news. Deepwater drilling - largely ignored or misunderstood to that point - exploded in the American consciousness in the worst way possible. Fire on the Horizon, written by veteran oil rig captain John Konrad and longtime Washington Post journalist Tom Shroder, recounts in vivid detail the life of the rig itself, from its construction to its improbable journey in the year 2000 to its end.

    At the dawn of the 20th century, humanity was facing global disaster. Mass starvation, long predicted for the fast-growing population, was about to become a reality. A call went out to the worlds scientists to find a solution. This is the story of the two enormously gifted, fatally flawed men who found it: the brilliant, self-important Fritz Haber and the reclusive, alcoholic Carl Bosch. Together they discovered a way to make bread out of air, built city-sized factories, controlled world markets, and saved millions of lives.
