Understanding how these technologies work is invaluable.  This book was written for everyone - no technical knowledge is required!While this book is not specifically about the Network+ or CCNA certifications, it as a way to give students interested in these certifications a starting point.

The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains

https://www.amazon.com/Shallows-What-Internet-Doing-Brains-e...
Finalist for the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in General Nonfiction: “Nicholas Carr has written a Silent Spring for the literary mind.”—Michael Agger, Slate“Is Google making us stupid?” When Nicholas Carr posed that question, in a celebrated Atlantic Monthly cover story, he tapped into a well of anxiety about how the Internet is changing us. He also crystallized one of the most important debates of our time: As we enjoy the Net’s bounties, are we sacrificing our ability to read and think deeply?Now, Carr expands his argument into the most compelling exploration of the Internet’s intellectual and cultural consequences yet published. As he describes how human thought has been shaped through the centuries by “tools of the mind”—from the alphabet to maps, to the printing press, the clock, and the computer—Carr interweaves a fascinating account of recent discoveries in neuroscience by such pioneers as Michael Merzenich and Eric Kandel. Our brains, the historical and scientific evidence reveals, change in response to our experiences. The technologies we use to find, store, and share information can literally reroute our neural pathways.Building on the insights of thinkers from Plato to McLuhan, Carr makes a convincing case that every information technology carries an intellectual ethic—a set of assumptions about the nature of knowledge and intelligence. He explains how the printed book served to focus our attention, promoting deep and creative thought. In stark contrast, the Internet encourages the rapid, distracted sampling of small bits of information from many sources. Its ethic is that of the industrialist, an ethic of speed and efficiency, of optimized production and consumption—and now the Net is remaking us in its own image. We are becoming ever more adept at scanning and skimming, but what we are losing is our capacity for concentration, contemplation, and reflection.Part intellectual history, part popular science, and part cultural criticism, The Shallows sparkles with memorable vignettes—Friedrich Nietzsche wrestling with a typewriter, Sigmund Freud dissecting the brains of sea creatures, Nathaniel Hawthorne contemplating the thunderous approach of a steam locomotive—even as it plumbs profound questions about the state of our modern psyche. This is a book that will forever alter the way we think about media and our minds.

The Internet of Money

https://www.amazon.com/Internet-Money-Andreas-M-Antonopoulos...

Antonopoulos examines and contextualizes the significance of bitcoin through a series of essays spanning the exhilarating maturation of this technology.Bitcoin, a technological breakthrough quietly introduced to the world in 2008, is transforming much more than finance. Bitcoin is disrupting antiquated industries to bring financial independence to billions worldwide. In this book, Andreas explains why bitcoin is a financial and technological evolution with potential far exceeding the label “digital currency.”Andreas goes beyond exploring the technical functioning of the bitcoin network by illuminating bitcoin’s philosophical, social, and historical implications. As the internet has essentially transformed how people around the world interact and has permanently impacted our lives in ways we never could have imagined, bitcoin -- the internet of money -- is fundamentally changing our approach to solving social, political, and economic problems through decentralized technology.

Cellular Obsession: How Smartphones, and the Internet of Things Are Going to Change Your Life

https://www.amazon.com/Cellular-Obsession-Smartphones-Intern...
Mobile Will Change Everything - AgainGeorge Orwell's paranoid vision of 1984 is here. Only it isn't Big Brother who is watching us. It's Big Data.Here's the deal.Google, Apple, and Microsoft are all attempting to do the same thing. They are trying to get your device to learn enough about you so it can anticipate what you want to do next and provide the appropriate information just as you need it. Rafe Needleman described it best in an article he authored for Yahoo Tech. He said artificial intelligence will be somewhat like "auto correct." Your smartphone will "auto suggest" what you should do next, based on your history. To do that, your smartphone would draw on your prior browsing history, and what it knows about you from your GPS location services, your text messages, and your emails.The hard part is getting your phone to think contextually. As human beings we can put things in context, based on what's happening now. For example, let's say you are sitting in your house.You smell something burning and see smoke coming from the kitchen. The next thing you know the smoke alarm goes off. Most people can put two and two together to determine something is wrong. They understand that maybe the house is on fire. A normal person is either going to check it out, or dial 9-1-1, and run out of the house screaming "fire!"Here's a tougher one.Let's say; you have an appointment set to replace your windshield at 9:15. The Glass Barn texts you to say they are running an hour behind schedule. Is that okay? Or would you like to reschedule? That text is buried among several other messages. Most of them are junk. A coupon for a dollar off a sandwich, free drinks at the bar down the street, and a contest entry. Which messages should your phone hide, or display? Most people would say the message from the Glass Barn should be displayed first because it's more urgent. But, how do you teach a chunk of metal and memory chips to make that decision? That's the real challenge.When contextual intelligence works, it's amazing. The problem is that right now your phone gets it right less than a third of the time. Google is working hard to improve on that number. Their future depends on getting it right. Time Magazine ran an article by Victor Lukerson a while back, titled, "Google Searches for Its Future." The premise was it's a whole new world out there. Google became the "go to" search engine because of their excellence in desktop search but mobile has changed everything. If Google wants to survive, they need to reinvent themselves. The future is mobile, and Google has determined the only way they can survive in this new reality is to focus in on"voice search" and "Google Now."Want to know more? Buy the book. Lean why cellular is the future of everything.
