This book addresses a missing piece of the public conversations about ethics and digital media. The chapters in this book were written by college students at the University of Texas in a course... More > called Ethics and New Media, offered in spring of 2015 and taught by Peg Syverson. The chapters reflect the students’ deep inquiry through research on their peers, reading, online discussion, and editorial work.

They raise further questions about how we can continue to include the voices of those most affected by new media in our public discussions about ethics, internet regulation, appropriate use of technology by children, and wise guidance from parents, spiritual leaders, and teachers.< Less

Compiling Lambda Calculus By Nils M Holm
eBook (PDF): $22.50
This book introduces the theory and interpretation of lambda calculus. It first describes lambda calculus as a formal term rewriting system and outlines some simple applications, like Church... More > numerals, the Y combinator, etc. The next part of the book defines and implements a tiny subset of the Scheme programming language and then extends it iteratively until it can be used as the basis for a real-world implementation. This part covers two models of interpretation as well as the transformation of lambda calculus to abstract machine code and portable C code. The final part of the book explores a language that resembles lambda calculus more closely, by supporting partial function application. The compilers and languages introduced in the book are implemented in Scheme and provided under the Creative Commons Zero license (a.k.a. Public Domain). Intended audience: compiler writers and everyone interested in the theoretical background of LISPy languages.< Less
