Grading: The grading will be based on roughly bi-weekly problem sets, attendance and class participation, and a final exam. And we are nearly drowning in it. In essence, a copy of a product made of bits can be made cheaply and quickly, and shipped across the country or internationally quickly and at very low cost.
In other words, information is shaped by cultural priorities. You are what you eat and so is your brain. Reviews From the reviews of the third edition: "It is encouraging to encounter a textbook for undergraduate students that is devoted to information age ethics The keywords are used to form a search vector.
Cremer, James F. At age 32 and as a researcher at Bell Laboratories, Shannon published a landmark paper proposing that information can be quantitatively encoded as a series of ones and zeroes. The ability to transmit electrical energy and the widespread use of internal combustion engines have had far-reaching impacts on our cities and on our goods and services distribution systems. The contributions made by researchers at the conference covered topics such as the past, present, and future of school informatics in the USSR; the family computer boom and its implications for computer literacy; the new meanings of literacy related to new information and communication technologies; computer use in education; and literacy in the information age. This type of computer typically costs millions of dollars.
