I'm enjoying the little digipres library I'm building up next to my desk:

- Home Computers: 100 Icons That Defined a Generation
- How Video Works
- Black Software
- Re-Collection
- Kill It With Fire
- The Theory and Craft of Digital Preservation
- Race After Technology
- 1995: the Year the Internet Broke 😈
- Breaking Things At Work
- The Real World of Technology
- Subprime Attention Crisis
- Computing (by Ceruzzi)
- Glitch Feminism
