✏Self Repair Networks Book Summary : This book describes the struggle to introduce a mechanism that enables next-generation information systems to maintain themselves. Our generation observed the birth and growth of information systems, and the Internet in particular. Surprisingly information systems are quite different from conventional (energy, material-intensive) artificial systems, and rather resemble biological systems (information-intensive systems). Many artificial systems are designed based on (Newtonian) physics assuming that every element obeys simple and static rules; however, the experience of the Internet suggests a different way of designing where growth cannot be controlled but self-organized with autonomous and selfish agents. This book suggests using game theory, a mechanism design in particular, for designing next-generation information systems which will be self-organized by collective acts with autonomous components. The challenge of mapping a probability to time appears repeatedly in many forms throughout this book. The book contains interdisciplinary research encompassing game theory, complex systems, reliability theory and particle physics. All devoted to its central theme: what happens if systems self-repair themselves?

✏Indian Computer Science CS Information Technology IT Academic Reform Past Activism Blog Book Book Summary : Main author Ravi S. Iyer created the blog and used it from September 2011 to play a part-time, peaceful and amicable, Indian Computer Science (CS) and Information Technology (IT) academic reform, Internet-based activist role. His focus was on improving the practice of software development in Indian CS & IT academia. But he thought that it is such a vital part of the CS & IT field and that it is so poor in many parts of Indian CS & IT academia, that he referred to his efforts as Indian CS & IT academic reform activism. Other contributors to the blog have given their views on certain topics. Main work period has been from 2011 to 2014 with a little work later, off & on. The main author is no longer active in this area. This book is aimed at helping other activists involved in improving the practice of software development in Indian CS and IT academia to get the views of the blog in a convenient form. The book may also be of interest to similar activists in other countries. About the author: Main author Ravi S. Iyer is a Physics graduate from Ruia college, University of Bombay (Mumbai) who was industry trained and later self-taught in software development. He worked in the international software industry (US, Europe, Japan, South Korea, India etc.) developing systems as well as applications software (CS & IT) for over 18 years after which he retired from commercial work. Later, mainly as a "visiting faculty", he offered free service of teaching programming courses (lab. courses) and being a "technical consultant" for student projects in a Maths & Computer Science department of a deemed university in India for 9 years.

✏Content and Complexity Book Summary : Information design is an emerging area in technical communication, garnering increased attention in recent times as more information is presented through both old and new media. In this volume, editors Michael J. Albers and Beth Mazur bring together scholars and practitioners to explore the issues facing those in this exciting new field. Treating information as it applies to technical communication, with a special emphasis on computer-centric industries, this volume delves into the role of information design in assisting with concepts, such as usability, documenting procedures, and designing for users. Influential members in the technical communication field examine such issues as the application of information design in structuring technical material; innovative ways of integrating information design within development methodologies and social aspects of the workplace; and theoretical approaches that include a practical application of information design, emphasizing the intersection of information design theories and workplace reality. This collection approaches information design from the language-based technical communication side, emphasizing the role of content as it relates to complexity in information design. As such, it treats as paramount the rhetorical and contextual strategies required for the effective design and transmission of information. Content and Complexity: Information Design in Technical Communication explores both theoretical perspectives, as well as the practicalities of information design in areas relevant to technical communicators. This integration of theoretical and applied components make it a practical resource for students, educators, academic researchers, and practitioners in the technical communication and information design fields.
