Book Review: The Information - James Gleick

I picked up The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood by James Gleick last Christmas on a visit to the amazing Charlie Byrne's Bookshop in Galway. My reason for buying it was part intrigue about how the author could fill a whole book about there being too much information in the world, and partly because I must admit, the cover design drew me in. It took me a while but I finally got around to reading and finished the book this week and I was so happy with the choice I made all those months ago.

Book Review: Elon Musk - Ashlee Vance

I just finished reading Elon Musk: How the Billionaire CEO of SpaceX and Tesla is Shaping our Future by Ashlee Vance. It's an easy to read biography/commentary of Elon Musk's business successes and how his life and experiences account or attribute to them. It's very interesting to read the blow by blow accounts of the many many ups and downs of all of Musk's companies and Vance does a good job of trying to get multiple views on any incident by interviewing as many people involved as possible.

Comic Review: Analog

I picked up Analog issues 1 & 2 recently because of the amazing alternative cover that Declan drew for the first issue. In Analog #1, we are introduced to the main character, Jack McGinnis, a Jack Bauer/John Wick/Transporter type of anti-hero, who transports paper documents for the highest bidder. Paper documents you say? Well, a quick narrative flashback shows us that Jack was somehow instrumental in destroying the internet during "The Great Doxxing" of 2024. Now Jack and others like him help secrets travel the old fashioned, analog way.
