I'm just going to assume we need to dig on this picture. Those books didn't get stacked there by themselves.
Shall we start with the Titles and Subjects, and then move on to authors?
By the way, when I was typing this titles or authors (partial or complete) on amazon, they were top of the search lists. I imagine people all over the world are looking them up trying to find the hidden meaning. From foreign intelligence, to Q researchers, to cabal.
I hope this serves as a bookmark to this post.
Le Carre book is “Legacy of Spies” it’s at the bottom of the spine horizontally
Cruising twitter today looking for news from the Watkins hearing. Not much.
The troll waves are back to “Orange Man Bad” all OVER the #QAnon hashtag. They’re not even busting on Q.
Just juvenile stuff. ShareBlue scrapes bottom.
Re: John Le Carre. Could it be “The Little Drummer Girl”? I read that book many, many years ago and thought it was stupid. (and repetitive). But now I’m wondering if Le Carre was telling us about MK Ultra.
Anyone else read it? Maybe more recently?!
For later study. Thanks, Kit
The second book in the right stack is not braille.
Amazon Summary of book:
Before the Internet became widely known as a global tool for terrorists, one perceptive U.S. citizen recognized its ominous potential. Armed with clear evidence of computer espionage, he began a highly personal quest to expose a hidden network of spies that threatened national security. But would the authorities back him up? Cliff Stoll's dramatic firsthand account is "a computer-age detective story, instantly fascinating [and] astonishingly gripping" (Smithsonian).
Cliff Stoll was an astronomer turned systems manager at Lawrence Berkeley Lab when a 75-cent accounting error alerted him to the presence of an unauthorized user on his system. The hacker's code name was "Hunter" -- a mysterious invader who managed to break into U.S. computer systems and steal sensitive military and security information. Stoll began a one-man hunt of his own: spying on the spy. It was a dangerous game of deception, broken codes, satellites, and missile bases -- a one-man sting operation that finally gained the attention of the CIA...and ultimately trapped an international spy ring fueled by cash, cocaine, and the KGB.
This book sounds amazing to the geek in me and has many good reviews on Amazon, but I choose to buy the book and not Kindle version. Kind of reminds me of another book I read years ago:
The Soul of a New Machine is a non-fiction book written by Tracy Kidder and published in 1981. It chronicles the experiences of a computer engineering team racing to design a next-generation computer at a blistering pace under tremendous pressure. The machine was launched in 1980 as the Data General Eclipse MV/8000.
