Glut - Mastering Information Through the Ages

by Alex Wright
  • Decent content
  • Decent writing
A interesting study of the development of information technology brings readers on a stimulating journey through the development of information era. Today's data boom might feel like a modern trend, but the issue of information overload is not new and appears first quite a long time ago. Human beings gathered, preserved and arranged knowledge long before the invention of computers: from Ice Age taxonomies to Sumerian records, Greek libraries to monasteries of the Dark Age. Now, as our old systems fail to deal with what programmer Richard Saul Wurman called…

A interesting study of the development of information technology brings readers on a stimulating journey through the development of information era. Today’s data boom might feel like a modern trend, but the issue of information overload is not new and appears first quite a long time ago. Human beings gathered, preserved and arranged knowledge long before the invention of computers: from Ice Age taxonomies to Sumerian records, Greek libraries to monasteries of the Dark Age. Now, as our old systems fail to deal with what programmer Richard Saul Wurman called a data tsunami, we are standing at a cliff. Alex Wright weaves a fascinating tale that incorporates apparently far-flung subjects such as insect colonies, Stone Age art, medieval monasteries, Renaissance encyclopedias, early electronic networks, and the internet. To draw a startling conclusion, he brings these strands together, implying that the future of the digital age lies deep in our past.

A groundbreaking and thorough analysis of the essence and advancement of knowledge by one of the greatest thinkers of today. David Deutsch, an award-winning pioneer in the area of quantum computation, argues, in this important new book, that explanations play a central role in the universe. According to Deutsch, this flood of ever-improving explanations has unlimited reach: we are subject only to the laws of physics, and they place no upper limit to what we can actually perceive, regulate, or do. In his previous work, The Fabric of Reality, Deutsch explains the four strongest branches of current science revealing a single structure of reality. He extends this philosophy in this new book to a wide variety of topics and unanswered questions, from innovation and free will to the nature and future of the human race. The Beginning of Infinity is a revolutionary book that will become a masterpiece of its kind, packed with fascinating new ideas about human selection, hope, scientific theory, and the evolution of culture.
