Subject – Science & Technology Week

Books – The History of Time, Store of the Worlds & Always On

An arching range that tries to cover science and technology in literature. I begin with perhaps the most popular science book ever read, A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking. From there, I look at a recent release in the Science Fiction genre through a collection of short stories by Robert Sheckley titled Store of the Worlds. Finally, I read and discuss a modern-day technology study called Always On by Wired magazine editor Brian X. Chen.
