This page lacks structure or coherence. Please help!! Maybe it should become blog-like?
Q: What's the difference between the reading room and the other compilation of resources (ex: Online resources)?
This page -- and its subpages -- is/are supposed to supercede the other collections of Online resources and to be more specific to the things that we're actually doing. I don't know whether this is true in practice. There's more overlap with WhatYouShouldKnow, though.
Good general resources include Wikipedia
Special collections are becoming available. See, for example,
/AbstractDataTypes /FiniteStateMachines /Grammars /GraphAlgorithms /Logic /NpCompleteness /OrdersOfGrowth /Prolog /SchemeResources /TailRecursion /TuringMachines
Annotations of Cormen by topic (so far) are on WhatYouShouldKnow.
There are some incredibly cool AlgorithmAnimations available.
Scheme is pretty well covered in SICP and Dybvig on the ResourcesForScheme page. (The relevant part of Dybvig is a faster read -- either good or bad depending on how comfortable you feel with it -- so pick the book with the right pacing for you.)
