IWoz : computer geek to cult icon : how I invented the personal computer, co-founded Apple, and had fun doing it by Steve Wozniak( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once upon a time, computers looked like big, alien vending machines. They had large screens, cryptic switches, huge boxes, and odd lights. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen? The result was the first true personal computer, the Apple I. Widely affordable and easily understood, Wozniak's invention has been rapidly transforming our world ever since. His life--before and after Apple--is a "home-brew" mix of brilliant discovery and adventure, as an engineer, a concert promoter, a fifth-grade teacher, a philanthropist, and an irrepressible prankster. From the invention of the first personal computer to the rise of Apple as an industry giant, iWoz presents a no-holds-barred, rollicking, firsthand account of the humanist inventor who ignited the computer revolution.--From publisher description
The genomics age : how DNA technology is transforming the way we live and who we are by Gina Smith( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the advent of life, every creature has been beholden to its genetic blueprint. But mankind has never fully accepted the design, and human history is woven out of our perpetual attempts to redraw it. The latest manifestations of this quest are major developments in DNA technology. These advances have presented us with an almost inconceivable array of opportunities - and with them a daunting vortex of ethical and social issues." "The Genomics Age is your guide to this startling new reality, a very near future in which science will empower us to make decisions with profound biological, moral, economic, and societal implications. Gina Smith explains the history and technology behind these advances, and probes the fundamental questions they pose."--Jacket

En 1960, Steve Wozniak est au CM2 dans une école de Californie. Les ordinateurs existent, bien sûr, mais ils prennent beaucoup de place. Des pièces entières dans les sous-sols des centres de recherches les plus prestigieux. Personne n’imagine seulement en avoir un chez soi, encore moins jouer avec ni même y surfer sur Internet. Personne, sauf le jeune Steve. Lui en rêve. Un rêve qui vire à l’obsession. Il devra pourtant attendre encore quelques années avant de parvenir à le réaliser. Des années à participer aux foires aux sciences locales, à construire des équipements de radioamateurs, à inventer une super calculatrice, à démonter des machines, à en concevoir sur papier – toujours avec moins de composants électroniques –, à éplucher les manuels d’informatique, à se perfectionner en logique, à devenir président du club d’électronique de son établissement, à faire des blagues aussi, beaucoup de blagues, à fabriquer une Blue Box et à sympathiser avec Captain Crunch. Il devra aussi se faire un bon copain au lycée. C’est important, les copains. Il s’appellera Steve Jobs, sera dingue d’informatique et n’aimera pas trop les études. En revanche, il cherchera un truc à faire dans la vie. Et tous deux seront bien d’accord sur un point : pourquoi les ordinateurs sont-ils si compliqués d’utilisation ? Après quelques réunions au Homebrew Computer Club, les deux Steve, Jobs le businessman et Wozniak l’ingénieur, créeront et commercialiseront le premier micro-ordinateur, l’Apple I. C’était en 1977

Recent and ongoing advances in DNA technology offer unprecedented promise for our immediate future as well as for the long term ... At what point might our capabilities subjugate our principles? When we tinker with genetic codes encrypted and refined over hundreds of thousands of years, are we corrupting the very essence of humanity? [This book] shows why it is a necessary one - and what is being done to see it accomplished.-Dust jacket
