I really do like the general style, Matt!

Ch1 intro ...
- by-product (not "bi-product")
- "flowery crap" ... Would prefer something more refined like "flowery nonsense"

Page 13, talking of John Cage's 4' 13" ... its only content (not "it's only content")

Page 15 (section 1.2) ...
- "You have gotten" (not "You have got")
- "You also may have invested"

Chapter 2 tomorrow (looks invliting).
Cheers, Tony Austin.

Page 18, section 1.2.1 final paragraph ... ""its price halving" (not "it's proce halving")

Thanks NT. I've been very lax on the spell checking so far. I'm sure there'll be many more correction to be made before it gets to print.

Section 1.1.4 last sentence in paragraph immediately beneath Figure 1.4 should read "... may not be quite as old as Art." (Not "... may not quite as old as Art."

In Preface section Blake vs. Newton - last sentence of paragraph immediately preceding the paragraph mentioning Christine Keeler: should read "... unpredictability is not something one wants from a computer." (not "... unpredictability is not something one wants from a computers.")
