LOTR & Harry Potter appear to be the most shared books in every group... they should make that list weighted by default.
I think I need to change the algorithm a little, to be harder on the really popular stuff. These algorithms are actually quite hard to write. To do it the right way would require a good deal of statistics—in a group of X members, with an average of Y books, what would the expected number of copies of Programming Perl be?
Anyone done anything like that, or have a book suggestion?
(Number of title X in group / size of group) / (Number of title X in total / total number of users)
Does anyone in the group NOT have Cryptonomicon?
I've read part of Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (it's nice that they have it online, and hmm, I wonder why the touchstone isn't working...), the first few chapters of The Mythical Man-Month (the cloud quote is great :)), and (as of last night) the first 100 pages of Donald Knuth's Digital Typography.
Has anyone read Knuth's The Art of Computer Programming series? If so, what did you think of it?
I'm at an age now where I'm starting to reevaluate some of the decisions I made when I was younger, and I'm thinking it's really time I went back and learned my maths properly. If only I can find the time! ;)
So you need to have some idea, each time you pick up the book, of what you're planning to read it for, and then you can skip over the sections that might prevent you from understanding the parts you wanted to understand.
My worthwhile list would be The Practice Of Programming, Martin Fowler's Refactoring, The Pragmatic Programmer and Feathers's Working Effectively With Legacy Code.
It looks as though some of those touchstones haven't worked.
Trying now to do som J2me. Started reading a book called" Wireless Java Programming with j2me" by Yu Feng and Dr. Jun Zhu.
