The Book

Fundamentals of Mobile and Pervasive Computing

Update: May 14, 2022. It's now been 16 years since the book came out. It's still available, but some things have changed in networking since then.
[Fundamentals of Mobile and Pervasive Computing Fundamentals of Mobile and Pervasive Computing is now published by McGraw-Hill and available at book stores! It is a textbook designed for two audiences, professionals in the field looking for information on Mobile and Pervasive computing, and students in a senior undergraduate or graduate level course that would include Mobile Computing, Pervasive Computing, Wireless Computing, Sensor Networks, Wireless Security, and other similar topics.

It also mentions sperm whales, which I think distinguishes it from other texts in the area.

The Writing Process

The book was written with three of my colleagues; we all were grad students together at The Ohio State University. In July 2005, Golden and I met up in Woodstock, NY and did some work together on the copy-edited text we had just got back. AAh, the process of writing is certainly grueling. Here you can see us in deep concentration, searching for that perfect noun. And here is an action shot in which I make the suggestion to change an instance of the passsive voice to the active voice as Golden enters the change. Next, we either spotted a typo or fought a group of evil robotic cyborg ninjas that jumped out of the trees. I forget.
