Yesterday after my talk I met briefly Prof. Brian Randell from the School of Computing Science at Newcastle University. Today we had a chat over a coffee and it is really interesting to think more about dependability implications of ubicomp technologies.
Besides many other points I got a set of interesting pointers to books:
- The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
- The Victorian Internet: The Remarkable Story of the Telegraph and the Nineteenth Century’s On-Line Pioneers by Tom Standage
- Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations by Clay Shirky
