Matthew Kirschenbaum’s essay “Extreme Inscription (Toward a Grammatology of the
Hard Drive)" may be of interest.

       From: Willard McCarty 
       Subject: microelectronics of the chip & innards of the OS

I'm looking for explanatory literature on two closely related subjects:
the microelectronic design of processors and the structure of operating
systems, in both areas written for the technologically undereducated
(like me). For the former, I am looking for design at the level of the decisions
designers make -- but explained in terms scholars in the human sciences
would understand, perhaps with some effort. For the latter, I am especially
interested in implementation of abstraction levels and information
hiding.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yours,
WM
