Frustrated geek explains what he does in a children’s book

Robert M. Lee is an expert on a topic few people have heard of and even fewer understand: supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA).

plerudulier‘s insight:

It refers to systems that control nuclear power plants, satellites, water filtration systems, the power grid, that sort of thing.

Yet it is so complicated that even the people who run these systems don’t always fully comprehend them. So Lee decided to help us all out by writing an illustrated, easy-to-read children’s book, “SCADA and Me: A Book for Children and Management.”

+

 

Illustrated by Jeff Haas and published by IT Harvest Press, ”SCADA and Me” tells the story of Little Bobby, who has been asked to protect SCADA but doesn’t know what it is, and his friend Matt, who gives him a guided tour of systems that use SCADA. It is by turns informative and sarcastic, and actually easy to understand.
