Broad Band: The Untold Story of the Women Who Made the Internet (2018) 4 stars

Misleading Title

4 stars

The title book is a little bit misleading. The book is not limited to the influence of women on the Internet, it tells about women in computing in general. I really enjoyed learning about many biographies which have been omitted from the history of computing for a long time. The criteria for the selection of the portrayed women was not always clear to me. I loved the notes in the appendix which are a great starting point for further reading.

Die wilde Geschichte vom Wassertrinker (Paperback, German language, 1992, Diogenes) 4 stars

Eine wilde Geschichte

4 stars

Mein erster früher Irving. Dass seine Geschichten voller skurriler Charaktere und Einfälle sind, mag ich an ihnen. Bei diesem Buch hatte ich allerdings das Gefühl, dass Irving alle Ideen, die er hatte, ungefiltert in das Buch einfließen lassen hat. Das wirkt stellenweise etwas überladen und die Fixierung auf weibliche Brüste wirkt schon fast zwanghaft. Ich hatte trotzdem viel Spaß beim Lesen und habe die letzten Kapitel extra langsam gelesen, um noch etwas länger was vom Buch zu haben.
