What do unicycles, flaming trumpets, and a robotic, labyrinth-solving mouse named Theseus have to do with computers? Everything (if you’re lucky enough to have discovered the utter joy and delightful weirdness of Bell Labs’ favorite prodigal son, Claude Shannon). This fast-paced dive into Shannon’s life and career will have you exploring the mind of one of humanity’s greatest thinkers, puzzlers, tinkerers, and oddball geniuses and hopefully spark your next big weekend project idea.
