Geek Sublime


On the way back from  dropping  my son,  (working member of the geek community,)

at the ferry terminal the other day,  I heard a great interview with one of our authors.

Vikram Chandra  is a computer programmer and novelist.  In  his book

Geek Sublime: The Beauty of Code and the Code of Beauty, he looks at the

differences and similarities between writing code for computer programs

and the art of writing fiction and poetry.   He explores topics such as logic gates

and literary modernism,the machismo of tech geeks, the omnipresence of an

“Indian Mafia” in Silicon Valley, and the writings of the eleventh-century

Kashmiri thinker Abhinavagupta.   The book is a fascinating look at the intersection

of science and art.  To hear the interview check out: Geek Sublime at CBC Radio
