Der unsichtbare Mensch
16,00 CHF *

Von hasserfüllten Postings über Facebook bis hin zur Enthüllungsplattform Wikileaks: Die Anonymität ist zu einem zentralen Thema des 21. Jahrhunderts geworden. Wann ist die Geheimhaltung der eigenen Identität berechtigt und notwendig? Und wann wird sie als schützender Mantel missbraucht? Seit jeher, in absoluten Systemen oder Krisenzeiten, kann Anonymität lebensnotwendig sein. Derzeit stellt uns der Balanceakt zwischen dem schützenswerten Recht auf Privatsphäre und dem Bedürfnis nach einem respektvollen Zusammenleben vor neue Herausforderungen. Gerade im Netz zeigt sich die Schattenseite der Namenlosigkeit, in Onlineforen wütet die anonyme Masse. Denn die scheinbare Unsichtbarkeit im Netz enthemmt virtuelle Diskussionen massgeblich. Ingrid Brodnig, netzpolitische Redakteurin in Wien, hat die Geschichte der Anonymität aufgearbeitet und erklärt, wie das Internet die Debatte nun zusätzlich anheizt. Sie liefert keine einfachen Antworten, sondern brauchbare Vorschläge, wie man sowohl Cyberaktivisten schützen als auch moderne Heckenschützen entwaffnen kann. Mit einem Vorwort von Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, Oxford Internet Institut.

Networks: A Very Short Introduction
9,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

From ecosystems to Facebook, from the Internet to the global financial market, some of the most important and familiar natural systems and social phenomena are based on a networked structure. It is impossible to understand the spread of an epidemic, a computer virus, large-scale blackouts, or massive extinctions without taking into account the network structure that underlies all these phenomena. In this Very Short Introduction, Guido Caldarelli and Michele Catanzaro discuss the nature and variety of networks, using everyday examples from society, technology, nature, and history to explain and understand the science of network theory. They show the ubiquitous role of networks; how networks self-organize; why the rich get richer; and how networks can spontaneously collapse. They conclude by highlighting how the findings of complex network theory have very wide and important applications in genetics, ecology, communications, economics, and sociology. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Isaiah Quintabe - IQ for short - has never been more successful, or felt more alone. A series of high-profile wins in his hometown of East Long Beach have made him so notorious that he can hardly go to the corner store without being recognized. Dodson, once his sidekick, is now his full-fledged partner, hell-bent on giving IQ's PI business some real legitimacy: a Facebook page, and IQ's promise to stop accepting Christmas sweaters and carpet cleanings in exchange for PI services. So when a young painter approaches IQ for help tracking down her missing mother, it's not just the case Isaiah's looking for, but the human connection. And when his new confidant turns out to be connected to a dangerous paramilitary operation, IQ falls victim to a threat even a genius can't see coming. Waiting for Isaiah around every corner is Seb, the Oxford-educated African gangster who was responsible for the death of his brother, Marcus. Only, this time, Isaiah's not alone. Joined by a new love interest and his familiar band of accomplices, IQ is back - and the adventures are better than ever. 'Writing so sharp you may cut your fingers on the pages . . . outrageous and laugh-out-loud funny. The characters are unforgettable' Attica Locke, Edgar Award-winning author of Bluebird, Bluebird
