Editorial Reviews

Review

Colorado runs on its data. Agriculture, bioscience, energy, aerospace, healthcare, finance, and advanced manufacturing all require safety of their data and infrastructure against serious threats. Society's Genome looks to evolution and epochal threats to derive methods for data storage and digital preservation. It's a fresh perspective and interesting story of historical loss from Ptolemy's map to American chestnut trees and an optimistic look at preventing its recurrence. --John Hickenlooper, Governor of Colorado

Society's Genome is the story about the future of technologies and the societal behavioral issues (e.g., malware, cyber-attacks) that evolve and threaten it. It is essential reading to understand the diverse aspects of The Genome -- aka all the digital memories from your PC's store to all the storage that constitutes society's memory. Finally, the book makes a case for storage-technology genetic diversity that system designers should only ignore at their peril. --Gordon Bell, Researcher Emeritus, Microsoft Research Silicon Valley Laboratory

If you live in the 21st century and not in a cave this book's for you. --Michael C. Glaviano, PhD; futurist, author of Edge Station and Crows Gambit
