“Chip War” by Chris Miller

This book traces the evolution of the chip industry, elegantly describing the economic, technological and geopolitical forces at work in the 75 years since the invention of the transistor. The story flows around the industry’s key characters (it’s a colorful bunch to say the least!) and their decision-making, both commercial and technological. Must-read if you’re keen to understand how chips ended up in almost every aspect of life in 2022.

The Tools - Phil Stutz

Ik zag de Netflix-docu Stutz en wilde graag meer te weten komen over de verschillende ‘tools’. Het boek werkt de verschillende concepten verder uit op een net zo toegankelijke manier als je in de docu ontdekt.

Writers and their cats (Alison Nastasi)

De kat als muze! 🐱 De pluizenbol van Hemingway heette Cristóbal Colón, die van Stephen King heette Smucky, en Haruki Murakami had Croquette. 😊
