My publisher Springer Praxis doesn't like my book's title "The Universal Tool." Well it was only a working title and they'd like it changed. For the time being we've agreed on "The Universal Machine: from the dawn of computing to digital consciousness." Changing it to the Universal Machine at least means it now is a direct quote from Alan Turing who referred to computers as a universal machine. The subtitle I quite like as it neatly indicates that the book is both about history and the future.
Note: at some point in the future this blog will change to reflect this to be called "The Universal Machine."
