Computer Science Classic Texts Online
I was searching for a copy of Claude Shannon’s seminal paper on information theory, when I stumbled across this collection of links to Classic Texts in Computer Science.
It includes classics such as Teach Yourself Programming in Ten Years by Peter Norvig, Frederic P. Brooks’s No Silver Bullet: Essence and Accidents of Software Engineering, the ‘Google’ paper that founded an empire!: The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine by Sergey Brin and Lawrence Page and Computer Programming as an Art by Donald E. Knuth, to name just a few. Well worth a few hours browsing.
