About this title


The World's Only Known Constructively Snotty Computer Science Book: historically, its polemics for TCP/IP and against the international standardsmongers' "OSI" helped the Internet happen; currently, its principles of technoaesthetic criticism are still eminently applicable to the States of most (probably all) technical Arts—all this and Cover Cartoons, too . . . but it's not for those who can't deal with real sentences . . .

If, as we should, we let 1,000 flowers bloom,
We let 10,000 weeds bloom as well;
It must be our great task, then,
To distinguish the weeds from the flowers

About the Author:

M. A. Padlipsky comes by his interests in technology and aesthetics honestly, having majored in English and Applied Math at MIT. Dropping out of grad school in English, he dropped into programming and onto the research staff at MIT. Getting Multics onto the ARPANET led to becoming an Old Networking Boy, and that led to this book
