Books read January 2011, by date finished:
- Nymphomation, Jeff Noon (3rd)
- The Annals of the Heechee, Frederik Pohl (8th)
- Journey into Space, Toby Litt (11th)
- Smart Things: Ubiquitous Computing User Experience Design, Mike Kuniavsky (22nd)
The first third of Journey into Space is wonderful and poetic.
Kuniavsky's Smart Things is a comprehensive, bullet-proof, accessible guide and compendium of approaches to the entire ubiquitous computing sector. If you're designing smart things, it's a must-read. If you're theorising in the area, it's a must-cite.
