(Gorgeous) cover reveal: Zeroes and Ones

5 Comments

Have you ever seen anything more lovely? I adore this cover!

Zeroes and Ones

I love that it features a robot, because automation and robotics is where so much of technology is heading.

I love that the robot is an amalgam of many smaller contributions, because that’s exactly how information technology developed, through the efforts and input of so many different people over so many years.

I love that the robot is a clunky hodge-podge. It’s not slick or polished or perfect, nor does it need to be. It’s an experiment, a work-in-progress. It’s a message to kids (and adults) that it’s okay to be clunky. It’s okay to be imperfect. The history-changing geeks and heroes and hackers featured in this book weren’t perfect either. They made mistakes (sometimes huge or expensive or embarrassing mistakes too!), but they kept trying, kept pursuing their passion. Kept making things better and better, bit by bit.

And I love that the robot is friendly. Because this book is friendly. It’s funny. It’s quirky. Plus who can resist a book that literally reaches off the shelf to greet you, and with such a winning smile too 🙂

So hooray for ZEROES AND ONES. And hooray for the geeks, heroes and hackers who changed history. I hope I do your story justice 🙂
