How Computers Work.
Recently recovered & scanned in by the good folks at BoingBoing, this was an early textbook explaining the fundamental concepts & inner workings of modern computing systems. I believe a slightly different edition of this book was my own introduction to computers when I was in 6th grade or so, which explains a lot about my approach to using them.

mashup. There you can find all stores in an area, or just the kind you're looking for—e.g. just B&Ns in Pittsburgh
or just indies and specialty stores in San Francisco
. Notice a store is missing? Tell them so they can add their store to the map
. Future plans include adding granularity to the specialty store category so that you can sort by type, such as Mystery, Science Fiction, Used, or Gay & Lesbian.
