ಭ  ᘛ The Bug: A Novel to read ್ Kindle By Ellen Ullman ೪ ಭ ᘛ The Bug: A Novel to read ್ Kindle By Ellen Ullman ೪ Essayist, memoirist Close to the Machine and computer industry pioneer Ullman has now produced an illuminating novel about the fate of a programmer, Ethan Levin, who wrestles with an ineradicable bug in the heroic era of computing It is 1984, and Telligentsia is an information technology startup engaged in creating a database and an interface to access it While such a project is ho hum now, at the time screen graphics were a novelty and the mouse was a puzzling and esoteric artifact The story is narrated by Roberta Walton from the perspective of 2000, remembering her first IT job as a quality checker for Telligentsia, which she takes after a failed bid for an academic job in linguistics Berta finds Ethan s bug, UI 1017, but there s a catch it appears and disappears erratically, so she can t get a core dump a picture of the part of the code where the bug resides Ethan must do the debugging, but he s in no shape to face the problem Insecure about his job because he doesn t have an advanced computer science degree, he codes far into the night, driving his neglected girlfriend, Joanna, into the arms of a weedy hippie Everybody at Telligentsia secretly feels at sea, but for Ethan the uncertainty starts to have deep psychological effects As Berta comes to realize, Ethan s ever alarming quirks are correlatives of the deeper collective madness of Telligentsia s impossible schedules and uncertain innovations As she proved she could in Close to the Machine, Ullman brings to the programmer mindset, in numerous finely wrought asides, a combination of poetic and philosophical sensibilities that plumb the abstruse depths of technological creation.Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.Ethan Levin, programmer at a database start up in the mid 1980s, has a serious bug to find, one that freezes the whole program However, the elusive bug cannot be reliably reproduced it seems to rear its ugly head only during high stakes demonstrations for venture capitalists and prospective clients As the bug continues to elude Levin and Roberta, the software tester, the idea that it has a life of its own seems less and less a joke even to fellow employees , and believable While this novel can be enjoyed for its humor albeit in a wry and dark sort of way , there is undoubtedly deeper meaning behind the individual trials of Levin and Roberta Ullman s poetic and philosophical inclination shine through a story that is, on the surface, about technology However, readers may gain a closer understanding of the way people interact with technology, the way small things can have huge ripple effects that profoundly affect people s lives, the way life itself reveals its meaning Gavin Quinn Copyright American Library Association All rights reserved Bed Bug Registry Check Apartments and Hotels Across North The Bed is a free,
