Cool story, thanks for sharing. Shannon was surely a genious. I’ve never understood why his theorems, which are effectively the laws of information theory, are just called theorems, whilst Newton’s laws of physics are rightfully called laws. I’ve seen so much unnecessary work resulting from an obvious lack of knowledge of them by some folks working in the field, so for me the story could be a little better if it educated readers a little more there.
