Where to start learning the basics?

There was a desire to understand the technology, but the distinct answer was not found. The requirements are - you need to read/watch to understand what and how a computer works, what an operating system is, as computers interact with each other (network). In General, I would like to know the basics of what lies at the Foundation of modern technology.

Yes, how you deeply you want to learn the basics? Personally I like the option to install different Linux s where you do everything yourself. One is enough to install Gentoo (OC Linux), others use LFS (the book is about how to compile Linux from scratch). You can even assemble from scratch FreeBSD. You will gain knowledge about the OS and secure it all into practice. To read books/sites boring.

I agree with You, all knowledge are open. However, in our time knowledge too much. Besides, reading articles from Wikipedia, as I don't seem to be enough to tie everything into one overall picture of the world of information technology. - Pauline.Lyn commented on March 20th 20 at 11:31
@Marc58that everything is connected it is necessary to work in the industry 10 years, then with luck, begin a little to understand the topic.
Start with the OS it should read, for example, Tanenbaum. The networks can start with course articles "networks for the smallest" on habré.
To sink to the level of transistors typically makes no sense. - Josianne99 commented on March 20th 20 at 11:34
