Could artificial intelligence put words into Stephen Hawking's mouth?
Can machines think? Are they conscious of their own attempts to recognize the problem, and understand the problem by forming a perception from sensory information gathered and concepts stored in our memories -- so as to develop a strategy, either inductively and deductively, to work out a solution and make a decision to act on an option? Igor Aleksander examines the issue of machine consciousness in his new edition of his book 'Impossible Minds.'

The hacker culture: Creatively overcoming limitations in programming
Chopping games in Warsaw, hacking software in Athens, creating chaos in Hamburg, and partying with computing in Zagreb and Amsterdam: the newly published Springer book 'Hacking Europe' focuses on several European countries at the end of the Cold War and shows that the digital development was not an exclusively American affair. The collection of essays in this book demonstrates how local hacker communities appropriated the computer and forged new cultures around creating distinct 'demoscenes.'
