There's geeks in the Googleplex!

I went to Google Books today, just see see what's new.
There is a section on the Books page called "Interesting." (see above.)
Below is one of the four books. Says geeks to me!

From Wikipedia: In mathematics, computing, linguistics and related subjects, an algorithm is a sequence of finite instructions, often used for calculation and data processing. It is formally a type of effective method in which a list of well-defined instructions for completing a task will, when given an initial state, proceed through a well-defined series of successive states, eventually terminating in an end-state. The transition from one state to the next is not necessarily deterministic; some algorithms, known as probabilistic algorithms, incorporate randomness.
