Bombs and Bandwidth: The Emerging Relationship Between Information Technology and Security

Bombs and Bandwidth: The Emerging Relationship Between Information Technology and SecurityA multidisciplinary view of Information Technology as it is used by governments and criminal organizations alike.

Why buy a multi-billion-dollar satellite and go to extreme lengths to try to avoid governmental detection when you can just buy a bit of airtime and send one of several million messages going out at any given time?—from Bombs and Bandwidth

Information Technology (IT) has become central to the way governments, businesses, social movements and even terrorist and criminal organizations pursue their increasingly globalized objectives. With the emergence of the Internet and new digital technologies, traditional boundaries are increasingly irrelevant, and traditional concepts—from privacy to surveillance, vulnerability, and above all, security—need to be reconsidered. In the post-9/11 era of “homeland security,” the relationship between IT and security has acquired a new and pressing relevance. Bombs and Bandwidth, a project of the Social Science Research Council, assembles leading scholars in a range of disciplines to explore the new nature of IT-related threats, the new power structures emerging around IT, and the ethical and political implications arising from this complex and important field.

Hacker’s Delight

Hacker's DelightA collection useful programming advice the author has collected over the years; small algorithms that make the programmer's task easier.

* At long last, proven short-cuts to mastering difficult aspects of computer programming

* Learn to program at a more advanced level than is generally taught in schools and training courses, and much more advanced than can be learned through individual study/experience.

* An instant cult classic for programmers!

Computer programmers are often referred to as hackers — solitary problem solvers engrossed in a world of code as they seek elegant solutions to building better software. While many view these unique individuals as “madmen,” the truth is that much of the computer programmer's job involves a healthy mix of arithmetic and logic. In Hacker's Delight, veteran programmer Hank Warren shares the collected wisdom — namely tips and tricks — from his considerable experience in the world of application development. The resulting work is an irresistible collection that will help even the most seasoned programmers better their craft. Henry S. Warren Jr. has had a 40-year career with IBM, spanning the computer field from the IBM 704 to PowerPC. He has worked on various military command and control systems, and on the SETL project under Jack Schwartz at NYU. Since 1973 he has been in IBM's Research Division at Yorktown Heights, New York. Here he has done compiler and computer architecture work on the 801 computer and its several variants through PowerPC. Presently he is working on the Blue Gene petaflop computer project. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Courant Institute at New York University in 1980.
