Am I correct that the spaces are also a part of the cipher?

Hey Rahul,

I'm sure some people around here are. I personally never developed a rigorous interest in cryptography, however when I was in highschool my favorite novel for awhile was Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. It's a sprawling piece of historical fiction about codebreaking in WWII, and a fictional 1990's internet conspiracy. The plot is just too wild to neatly summarize and is sprinkled with a lot of technical detail on cryptography. It is a long book and very hard to put down(I remember reading it in like two all-nighters). Cryptonomicon is an extremely popular book in America. If anybody is interested in Crypotgraphy it is worth your time to check it out.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did :) If anyone else needs more convincing, the New York Times did a nice review of it 15 years ago.

The interest towards cryptography and cryptology sprung within me when I got introduced to Morse code, and when I tried to figure out the old English runes in one of my favorite books, The Hobbit!

Also,

Some of us are going to be taking Harvard's intro CS class and talking about it on Brilliant. I saw that cryptography is on the syllabus, so there will likely be people who want to talk about it with you.
