Build your own digital computer!

paperclipcoverI discovered a post last night on Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories’ site re: “how to build a working digital computer out of paperclips.” It immediately reminded me of Charles Petzold’s book (Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software) so I headed over to to check it out. The book, How to Build a Working Digital Computer by Edward Alcosser, James P. Phillips, and Allen M. Wolk, is available for download in a variety of formats (many thanks and the copyright holders!!) and looks to be a very interesting read.
