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 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
concentration, searching for that perfect noun. And here is an
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.
