    Both my co-author Sean and I are worried that we're oversimplifying here -- but then, this series is called The Basics!

    Tom’s way of speaking is always so engaging. You just feel inclined to listen to him and it’s so easy to follow along. Glad this guy decided to become an educator, it’s always a pleasure!

    It's interesting to see that the English word "computer" comes from 'compute' + -'er' (person or thing doing an action). – In Swedish, we have the word "dator", which is a portmanteau of 'data' and 'motor'; an engine that runs through data. Quite clever.
