For all aspiring technologists

Anastasios Germanidis
The list author says: "If you dive into the technology world without cultural context, you'll get locked in the Silicon Valley echo chamber of stale ideas and start caring for things that don't matter. So you must read.

And remember: books are primarily storage devices, not sources of information. You just need to have the right metaphysics of containment in mind to identify them as such.

(Order arbitrary. But definitely read the first book.)"
