Thanks to Mike Loukides I recently discovered IDEA, a series of algorithm explainers presented as IKEA assembly instructions. It's a brilliant concept: IKEA instructions have to be clear and easy to follow, in sequential steps, without use of language. There are entries for determining a convex hull and for various sorting algorithms, but this one on public key encryption is my favorite (not least because it's the first time I feel like I "get" the concept).
That's all from us for this week. Have a great weekend, and we'll be back next week.
