Gleick’s book seemed at first like an overload of information but once it is broken down, it is much easier to comprehend. I did enjoy the brief history about the Chinese symbols. Chinese writing is always a fascinating one. Its graphic maybe pleasing to the eye but translation is very difficult.
A great point that was brought up is the current generation not using what goes behind having all the current information that is being accessed. Sad to say but I cannot remember a time before Google. I was not a part of the process that created the accessibility that is these current search engines and other websites throughout the internet. I can say that I appreciate it all.
