This one is focusing on computational theory for the masses and is an annotation of one of Turing's papers. The interesting thing to me is that he's put the request for publishers on his blog as an open invitation to publishers. He's probably also got agents making direct approaches. It will be interesting to see if he gets picked up by someone who he wouldn't normally have approached because of this open "letter"" top

It's a nice chat about stuff that he's done over the years. Including his phone phreaking days with Mitnick and blue box. There's wma and a two mp3 downloads available hi and low quality." top
