Unit Operations: An Approach to Videogame Criticism
Unit Operations: An Approach to Videogame Criticism
"Bogost challenges humanists and technologists to pay attention to one another, something they desperately need to do as computation accelerates us into the red zones of widespread virtual reality. This book gives us what we need to meet that challenge: a general theory for understanding creativity under computation, one that will apply...
The Coming Generational Storm: What You Need to Know about America's Economic Future
The Coming Generational Storm: What You Need to Know about America's Economic Future
In 2030, as 77 million baby boomers hobble into old age, walkers will outnumber strollers; there will be twice as many retirees as there are today but only 18 percent more workers. How will America handle this demographic overload? How will Social Security and Medicare function with fewer working taxpayers to support these programs? According to...
Is Human Nature Obsolete?: Genetics, Bioengineering, and the Future of the Human Condition
Is Human Nature Obsolete?: Genetics, Bioengineering, and the Future of the Human Condition
"Modifying ourselves through molecular biology is a humanitarian utopia to some, an imminent nightmare to others. But to all, the prospect should be a challenge because it touches on so many basic and unresolved questions. This excellent, probing collection of papers -- spanning philosophy, history, social science, and theology -- will be...
Exploratory Analysis and Data Modeling in Functional Neuroimaging
Exploratory Analysis and Data Modeling in Functional Neuroimaging
"All of the papers are well presented and accompanied by illustrative experimental applications. The book coverage goes beyond standard methodologies in functional neuroimaging and amounts to a highly valuable contribution to the field."
 -- Alfonso Nieto-Castanon, Neural Networks 18 (2005) 307-308

Improvisational Design: Continuous, Responsive Digital Communication
Improvisational Design: Continuous, Responsive Digital Communication
"This original and sound book should have a profound effect on design for digital media."
-- Mark D. Gross, Design Machine Group, Department of Architecture, University of Washington

Traditional visual design expresses information in fixed forms, such as print or film, so the message can be stored or

Types and Programming Languages
Types and Programming Languages

A type system is a syntactic method for automatically checking the absence of certain erroneous behaviors by classifying program phrases according to the kinds of values they compute. The study of type systems--and of programming languages from a type-theoretic perspective--has important applications in software engineering, language design,...

Simply Scheme - 2nd Edition: Introducing Computer Science
Simply Scheme - 2nd Edition: Introducing Computer Science
There are two schools of thought about teaching computer science. We might caricature the two views this way:

· The conservative view: Computer programs have become too large and complex to encompass in a human mind.
Therefore, the job of computer science education is to teach people how to discipline their work in such a way

Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media (Media Origins)
Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media (Media Origins)
A feminist media history of quantification, uncovering the stories behind the tools and technologies we use to count, measure, and weigh our lives and realities.

Anglo-American culture has used media to measure and quantify lives for centuries. Historical journal entries map the details of everyday life, while death...

A History of Modern Computing, 2nd Edition
A History of Modern Computing, 2nd Edition
Computers were invented to ‘‘compute’’: to solve ‘‘complex mathematical problems,’’ as the dictionary still defines that word. They still do that, but that is not why we are living in an ‘‘Information Age.’’ That reflects other things that computers do: store and retrieve data,...
Computer Science Logo Style 2/e, Vol. 1: Symbolic Computing
Computer Science Logo Style 2/e, Vol. 1: Symbolic Computing
This book isn’t for everyone.

Not everyone needs to program computers. There is a popular myth that if you
aren’t “computer literate,” whatever that means, then you’ll flunk out of college, you’ll
never get a job, and you’ll be poor and miserable all your life. The myth is promoted

Software Abstractions : Logic, Language, and Analysis
Software Abstractions : Logic, Language, and Analysis
Software is built on abstractions. Pick the right ones, and programming
will flow naturally from design; modules will have small and simple interfaces;
and new functionality will more likely fit in without extensive
reorganization. Pick the wrong ones, and programming will be a series
of nasty surprises: interfaces will become

Software Engineering for Internet Applications
Software Engineering for Internet Applications
This is the textbook for the MIT course ‘‘Software Engineering for Internet
Applications.’’ The course is intended for juniors and seniors in computer
science. We assume that they know how to write a computer program and
debug it. We do not assume knowledge of any particular programming languages,...
