Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less

Bitcoin: Technical Background and Data Analysis By Federal Reserve Board, Matthew Chen, Anton Badev
Paperback: $16.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
Broadly speaking, Bitcoin is a scheme designed to facilitate the transfer of value be- tween parties. Unlike traditional payment systems, which transfer funds denominated in sovereign currencies,... More > Bitcoin has its own metric for value called bitcoin (with lowercase letter \b", and abbreviated as BTC1). Bitcoin is a complex scheme, and its implementa- tion involves a combination of cryptography, distributed algorithms, and incentive driven behaviour. Moreover, recent developments suggest that Bitcoin operations may involve risks whose nature and proportion are little, if at all, understood. In light of these con- siderations, the purpose of this paper is to provide the necessary technical background to understand basic Bitcoin operations and document a set of empirical regularities related to Bitcoin usage. We present the micro-structure of the Bitcoin transaction process and highlight the use of cryptography for the purposes of transaction security and distributed maintenance of a ledger.< Less
