Mark Stuart Day: Bits to Bitcoin @ MIT Press Bookstore
Sep 20 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join the MIT Bookstore in welcoming Mark Stuart Day to discuss his book, Bits to Bitcoin: How Our Digital Stuff Works.

In Bits to Bitcoin, Mark Stuart Day offers an accessible guide to our digital infrastructure, explaining the basics of operating systems, networks, security, and other topics for the general reader. He takes the reader from a single process to multiple processes that interact with each other; he explores processes that fail and processes that overcome failures; and he examines processes that attack each other or defend themselves against attacks.

Mark Stuart Day was Chief Scientist at Riverbed Technology for a decade and is currently Visiting Lecturer at MIT. With more than thirty patented inventions, he has also made technical contributions at Dropbox, IBM, Cisco, Digital, and BBN.
