Life is the best playwright.....
You know, if this book had been written in 1991, my blood would have frozen in my veins....
Timothy Berners-Lee is the prototype of the main character, John Wainwright. He is the creator of the great World Wide Web. Not the Internet, but the system linking web servers. The WWW. The system that stores and transmits all the data. But I'm not a programmer, and my post is not about programming....
And the book is essentially the same.
The programming terminology is 15%, or even less. And everything is basic, the author didn't put too much stress on the reader... Author, who are you, nameless?
So what is the book about, you ask?
About academics...about love...about friendship...about life. Such a good story with lots of good people. A story with lots of faith...I don't know if in God, or in the power that decides our future. Lots of thoughts. Right, murderously right.... About destiny, about choices.
Did you know that 14 years before the wreck of the Titanic, a book was written about the wreck of a ship called Titan?
The main character is an I.T. guy). He is a selfish genius, ready to go all the way for his goal. He wants success, recognition. He even works at Zern. In general, a lot of adventures and rash actions await the reader, but the main thing is the bottom line.... ⠀
Do you think the Internet and its resources are evil? Or good? Artificial intelligence? Control over humanity or a way to put power in the hands of ordinary people? A source of knowledge or a way to access the knowledge and thoughts of Internet users?
Is it a science book? No. Is it a detective story? Well, sometimes yes, very exciting plot twists and turns. KGB men, secret structures, etc. Written very easily, beautifully and deliciously.
Very much I beg the publisher to pay attention, and maybe someone will take in the work...
But since every book has its own reader, I recommend it to anyone who loves literature over and about which one wants to think. Who likes plotting and thinking about great things?
Thank you @vpautina for the book. May this story be seen by all the world.
