I'm interested in computer science and I was wondering if you would recommend any starter books on computer science/algorithms/math for computer science? A lot of terms and ideas come up in some of the online programming tutorials that I don't really understand. Thanks so much and I love your blog!
When I learn, I feel the weight of the possibilities that will be made available when I have learned. If I finish learning C, I can write programs in C, but I can also write my death. What if I go on to write software that will be used by the police or military to survey & contain the proletariat? What if I decide that I can use my knowledge of programming to start a company and build capital, losing sight of the struggle? Neither Brian Kernighan nor Dennis Ritchie have instructed me on these issues.
