What happens when you think you have it all, and then, suddenly it’s taken away? Willa Chandler-Golden’s father changed the world: with his self-help best seller Is It Really Your Choice? Why Your Entire Life May Be Out of Your Control, millions of devoted fans found solace in the notion that everything happens for a reason. Though Willa isn’t entirely convinced of his prophesies, she readily admits that the universe has delivered her a solid life: a reliable husband, a fast-paced career. Sure there are hiccups - negative pregnancy tests, embattled siblings - but this is what the universe has brought, and life, if you don’t think about it too much, is wonderful. Then her (evidently not-so-reliable) husband proposes this: a two month break. Two months to see if they couldn’t live their lives without each other. And before Willa can sort out destiny and fate and what it all means, she’s axed from her job, her twelve-year-old nephew Nicky moves in, her ex-boyfriend finds her on Facebook, and her best friend Vanessa lands a gig writing for Dare You!, the hottest new reality TV show. And then Vanessa lures Willa into dares of her own - dares that run counter to her father’s theories of fate, dares that might change everything… but only if Willa is brave enough to stop listening to the universe and instead aim for the stars. 1.

Dreams Rewritten: Poems by Bill Yates , Hörbuch...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Dreams Rewritten is an eclectic collection of poetry written across the years from the perspective of a young college student, a husband and family man, and a mature and aging adult. Yates employs a range of poetic techniques from simple, descriptive poems to an experimental, highly creative voice. Author and historian, Dr. Rick Sherrod, describes Dreams Rewritten as "delightfully, creatively, often touchingly autobiographical, and liberally seasoned with delightful sense of humor. Throughout the work, I marveled at Yates' vast grasp of science, nature, and history; insights into human, parent-child, and gender relationships; understanding and appreciation of anthropology, world religions, man's place in the universe, and the human condition in general. I especially appreciated those poems that reflected his awareness of the rapidly changing, technologically-oriented world, which slows down for no one as we enter our twilight years. 'Facebook' is a masterpiece!" 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Rundell. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/047185/bk_acx0_047185_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Death Algorithm and Other Digital Dilemmas
16,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In The Death Algorithm and Other Digital Dilemmas, Roberto Simanowski wonders if we are on the brink of a society that views social, political, and ethical challenges as technological problems that can be fixed with the right algorithm, the best data, or the fastest computer. For example, the "death algorithm ¿ is programmed into a driverless car to decide, in an emergency, whether to plow into a group of pedestrians, a mother and child, or a brick wall. Can such life-and-death decisions no longer be left to the individual human? In these incisive essays, Simanowski asks us to consider what it means to be living in a time when the president of the United States declares the mainstream media to be an enemy of the people¿while Facebook transforms the people into the enemy of mainstream media. Simanowski describes smartphone zombies (or "smombies¿) who remove themselves from the physical world to the parallel universe of social media networks; calls on Adorno to help parse Trump's tweeting; considers transmedia cannibalism, as written text is transformed into a postliterate object; compares the economic and social effects of the sharing economy to a sixteen-wheeler running over a plastic bottle on the road; and explains why philosophy mat become the most important element in the automotive and technology industries.

The Filter Bubble
13,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In December 2009, Google began customizing its search results for all users, and we entered a new era of personalization. With little notice or fanfare, our online experience is changing, as the websites we visit are increasingly tailoring themselves to us. In this engaging and visionary book, MoveOn.org board president Eli Pariser lays bare the personalization that is already taking place on every major website, from Facebook to AOL to ABC News. As Pariser reveals, this new trend is nothing short of an invisible revolution in how we consume information, one that will shape how we learn, what we know, and even how our democracy works. The race to collect as much personal data about us as possible, and to tailor our online experience accordingly, is now the defining battle for today's internet giants like Google, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft. Behind the scenes, a burgeoning industry of data companies is tracking our personal information to sell to advertisers, from our political leanings to the hiking boots we just browsed on Zappos. As a result, we will increasingly each live in our own, unique information universe-what Pariser calls "the filter bubble." We will receive mainly news that is pleasant, familiar and confirms our beliefs-and since these filters are invisible, we won't know what is being hidden from us. Our past interests will determine what we are exposed to in the future, leaving less room for the unexpected encounters that spark creativity, innovation and the democratic exchange of ideas. Drawing on interviews with both cyber-skeptics and cyber-optimists, from the co-founder of OK Cupid, an algorithmically-driven dating website, to one of the chief visionaries of U.S. information warfare, THE FILTER BUBBLE tells the story of how the Internet, a medium built around the open flow of ideas, is closing in on itself under the pressure of commerce and "monetization." It peeks behind the curtain at the server farms, algorithms, and geeky entrepreneurs that have given us this new reality, and investigates the consequences of corporate power in the digital age. THE FILTER BUBBLE reveals how personalization could undermine the internet's original purpose as an open platform for the spread of ideas, and leave us all in an isolated, echoing world. But it is not too late to change course. Pariser lays out a new vision for the web, one that embraces the benefits of technology without turning a blind eye to its negative consequences, and will ensure that the Internet lives up to its transformative promise.
