Now, Carr expands his argument into the most compelling exploration of the Internet’s intellectual and cultural consequences yet published. As he describes how human thought has been shaped through the centuries by “tools of the mind”—from the alphabet to maps, to the printing press, the clock, and the computer—Carr interweaves a fascinating account of recent discoveries in neuroscience by such pioneers as Michael Merzenich and Eric Kandel. Our brains, the historical and scientific evidence reveals, change in response to our experiences. The technologies we use to find, store, and share information can literally reroute our neural pathways.
Building on the insights of thinkers from Plato to McLuhan, Carr makes a convincing case that every information technology carries an intellectual ethic—a set of assumptions about the nature of knowledge and intelligence. He explains how the printed book served to focus our attention, promoting deep and creative thought. In stark contrast, the Internet encourages the rapid, distracted sampling of small bits of information from many sources. Its ethic is that of the industrialist, an ethic of speed and efficiency, of optimized production and consumption—and now the Net is remaking us in its own image. We are becoming ever more adept at scanning and skimming, but what we are losing is our capacity for concentration, contemplation, and reflection.
Part intellectual history, part popular science, and part cultural criticism, The Shallows sparkles with memorable vignettes—Friedrich Nietzsche wrestling with a typewriter, Sigmund Freud dissecting the brains of sea creatures, Nathaniel Hawthorne contemplating the thunderous approach of a steam locomotive—even as it plumbs profound questions about the state of our modern psyche. This is a book that will forever alter the way we think about media and our minds.
"I laughed so hard and uncontrollably I could hardly breathe. Reading this on public transport is not a good idea." (Penthouse magazine)
"Brilliantly funny." (Jezebel.com)
From the notorious Internet troublemaker who brought the world the explosively popular "Next Time I'll Spend the Money on Drugs Instead", in which he attempted to pay his chiropractor with a picture he drew of a spider; "Please Design a Logo for Me. With Pie Charts. For Free," which has been described as one of the most passed-on viral e-mails of all time; and, most recently, the staggeringly popular "Missing Missy", which has appeared everywhere from The Guardian to Jezebel to Andrew Sullivan's The Daily Dish, comes this profoundly funny collection of irreverent Internet mischief and comedy.
Featuring all of Thorne's viral success, including "Missing Missy", The Internet Is a Playground culls together every article and e- mail from Thorne's wildly popular website 27bslash6.com, as well as enough new material, available only in these pages, to keep you laughing-and, indeed, crying-until Thorne's next stroke-of-genius prank. Or hilarious hoax. Or well-publicized almost-stint in jail (really).
Your every step online is being tracked and stored, and your identity literally stolen. Big companies and big governments want to know and exploit what you do, and privacy is a luxury few can afford or understand.
In this explosive yet practical book, Kevin Mitnick uses true-life stories to show exactly what is happening without your knowledge, teaching you "the art of invisibility"--online and real-world tactics to protect you and your family, using easy step-by-step instructions. Reading this book, you will learn everything from password protection and smart Wi-Fi usage to advanced techniques designed to maximize your anonymity.
Kevin Mitnick knows exactly how vulnerabilities can be exploited and just what to do to prevent that from happening. The world's most famous--and formerly the US government's most wanted--computer hacker, he has hacked into some of the country's most powerful and seemingly impenetrable agencies and companies, and at one point was on a three-year run from the FBI. Now Mitnick is reformed and widely regarded as the expert on the subject of computer security.
Invisibility isn't just for superheroes--privacy is a power you deserve and need in the age of Big Brother and Big Data.

Granted unprecedented access to a wealth of new material including exclusive interviews, Clark draws on his own first-hand experience of key figures integral to Alibaba’s rise to create an authoritative, compelling narrative account of how Alibaba and its charismatic creator have transformed the way that Chinese exercise their new found economic freedom, inspiring entrepreneurs around the world and infuriating others, turning the tables on the Silicon Valley giants who have tried to stand in his way.
Duncan explores vital questions about the company’s past, present, and future: How, from such unremarkable origins, did Jack Ma build Alibaba? What explains his relentless drive and his ability to outsmart his competitors? With over 80% of China’s e-commerce market, how long can the company hope to maintain its dominance? As the company sets its sights on the country’s financial and media markets, are there limits to Alibaba’s ambitions, or will the Chinese government act to curtail them? And as it set up shop from LA and San Francisco to Seattle, how will Alibaba grow its presence and investments in the US and other international markets?
Clark tells Alibaba’s tale within the wider story of China’s economic explosion—the rise of the private sector and the expansion of Internet usage—that haver powered the country’s rise to become the world’s second largest economy and largest Internet population, twice the size of the United States. He also explores the political and social context for these momentous changes. An expert insider with unrivaled connections, Clark has a deep understanding of Chinese business mindset. He illuminates an unlikely corporate titan as never before, and examines the key role his company has played in transforming China while increasing its power and presence worldwide.

In this revelatory book, Don Tapscott, the bestselling author of Wikinomics, and his son, blockchain expert Alex Tapscott, bring us a brilliantly researched, highly readable, and essential book about the technology driving the future of the economy.
Blockchain is the ingeniously simple, revolutionary protocol that allows transactions to be simultaneously anonymous and secure by maintaining a tamperproof public ledger of value. Though it’s best known as the technology that drives bitcoin and other digital currencies, it also has the potential to go far beyond currency, to record virtually everything of value to humankind, from birth and death certificates to insurance claims, land titles, and even votes.
Blockchain is also essential to understand if you’re an artist who wants to make a living off your art, a consumer who wants to know where that hamburger meat really came from, an immigrant who’s tired of paying big fees to send money home to your loved ones, or an entrepreneur looking for a new platform to build a business. And those examples are barely the tip of the iceberg.
As with major paradigm shifts that preceded it, blockchain technology will create winners and losers. This book shines a light on where it can lead us in the next decade and beyond.

Telecom 101 is composed of three parts: Fundamentals of Telecommunications, Telecommunications Technologies, and the IP Telecommunications Network.
PART I FUNDAMENTALS OF TELECOMMUNICATIONS
2 FUNDAMENTALS OF TELEPHONY
4 THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS INDUSTRY
We begin with the fundamentals of telephony and the telephone network – the basis for understanding everything else.
First is the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN): loops and trunks, circuit-switching, analog, the voiceband and Plain Ordinary Telephone Service (POTS). Plus, new for the fourth edition: Voice over IP (VoIP) is now part of the fundamentals.
Next is switching, starting with traditional telephone switches: Centrex, PBX and PBX trunks, and how that relates to the newer ideas of softswitches, Hosted PBX and SIP trunking.
This part is completed with a chapter on the telecommunications business: Local Exchange Carriers and Inter-Exchange Carriers, ILECs and CLECs, the main players and how carriers interconnect.
PART II TELECOMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES
6 TRANSMISSION SYSTEMS
7 THE NETWORK CLOUD AND SERVICE PROVISIONING
8 FIBER OPTICS
9 DSL AND CABLE MODEMS: LAST MILE ON COPPER
The second part is devoted to telecommunications technologies: the actual methods used to implement circuits and services.
We begin with digital: what digital is, how voice and video are digitized, and how digitized information is actually transmitted.
The next chapter is transmission systems: the high-capacity systems developed to carry many users’ traffic. This starts with the installed base of channelized systems, the hierarchy of DS0, DS1 and DS3 rates and an overview of T1, T3, SONET and ISDN.
Then our attention turns to the new generation packetized systems, introducing the concepts of overbooking and bandwidth on demand instead of channels, how this is implemented with frames and packets, coexistence and transition from channels to packets.
Then we understand the “Network Cloud”, how services are actually implemented, the three basic types of services and the equipment used for each.
Completing this part are chapters on the technologies used to implement the network:
Fiber Optics, including fundamentals of fiber, wave-division multiplexing, the network core, Metropolitan Area Networks, Passive Optical Networks and fiber to the premise.
Last Mile on Copper: DSL and Cable Modems, including fundamentals of modems, DSLAMs, VDSL, broadband and cable modems.
Wireless, concentrating on mobile communications: cellular and mobility concepts, the technologies TDMA, CDMA and OFDM, the generations from 1G to 4G, and the systems GSM, UMTS, 1X and LTE. This chapter is completed with WiFi and satellite.
PART III THE IP PACKET-SWITCHED TELECOM NETWORK (IP-PSTN)
11 "DATA" COMMUNICATIONS CONCEPTS
12 CODING, FRAMES AND PACKETS
13 THE OSI LAYERS AND PROTOCOL STACKS
14 ETHERNET, LANS AND VLANS
15 IP NETWORKS, ROUTERS AND ADDRESSES
16 MPLS AND CARRIER NETWORKS
17 THE INTERNET
18 WRAPPING UP
The third part of Telecom 101 is dedicated to the new-generation IP telecommunications network.
We begin by understanding how convergence was achieved by treating voice and video like data – then accordingly, cover the fundamentals of what used to be called “data communications”: DTEs, DCEs, LANs and WANs and the crucial concepts of packets and frames.
There are so many functions that need to be performed to implement phone calls, television, web browsing, email and everything else over the IP network, a structure is necessary to be able to identify and discuss separate issues separately. For this purpose, there is a chapter on the OSI Reference Model and its layers, identifying what the layers are, examples of protocols for each layer and how they work together in a protocol stack.
Then we begin moving up the layers. The next chapter is on Ethernet, LANs and VLANs (Layer 2), including MAC addresses and MAC frames, LAN cables, Optical Ethernet, LAN switches and how VLANs are used to separate traffic.
The next chapter is all about IP (Layer 3): how routers implement the network, routing tables, IP addresses, subnets, IPv4 address classes, static addresses, dynamic addresses and DHCP; public addresses, private addresses and NAT; and an overview of IP version 6.
On a real-world telecom network, a traffic management system is required. This is implemented with a technique called in general virtual circuits, and in particular with MPLS. The next chapter in the book covers the fundamentals, briefly reviews legacy technologies X.25, Frame Relay and ATM, then focuses on MPLS and how it is used to implement VPNs, Class of Service, service integration and traffic aggregation.
The last main chapter is on the Internet: its origins, what an ISP is and how an ISP connects to the rest of the Internet via transit and peering, the web, the Domain Name System, HTML and HTTP, SSL, MIME and base- 64 encoding for email, Internet telephony and Internet VPNs vs. business customer “MPLS service”.
The final chapter is a summary and wrap-up, covering technology deployment from the top down, useful reference charts listing all of the technologies, standard network designs and ending with a look at The Future.
Telecommunications technology is in constant change – and some technologies that used to be of prime importance are not so important today, and so have been moved from the main part of the book into appendices.
The very last part of the book provides a comprehensive list decoding mainstream acronyms and abbreviations used in telecom.

Introduction to Internet Scams and Frauds
With the Internet becoming such an integral part of all our lives, is it a surprise that we are more vulnerable to Internet scams and Internet fraud. So for all those people who want to know about the different ways in which a person can get scammed through Internet scams and Internet fraud, here is a complete information dossier telling you all about identity thefts, credit card thefts, Internet fraud and Internet scams.
Along with this, you are going to know more about how fraudsters can gain access to your bank account, thanks to emails which you demand information from you under the garb of updating your banking details and information.
Ignorance is not bliss. In such cases you have to be one step ahead of all the scamsters who benefit from a credulous public who believe that if banking and financial company officials have written to you about a serious matter, it is serious. They thrive on such threatening and scare tactics, telling you that your account is going to be limited within three days or some such ultimatum.
Remember that no bank or any other institution which has anything to do with money is going to ask you for your details, by asking you to update them online. Anybody with a little bit of common sense knows that any information which is sent online either through mail or through tapping on supposedly secure websites can be easily accessed by any hacker with a little bit of experience and computer know how.
So apart from showing you ways and means with which you can check these Internet scamsters and credit card identity thieves, this book is going to give you information on how you can protect yourself from future financial losses.

We are living in the computer age, in a world increasingly designed and engineered by computer programmers and software designers, by people who call themselves hackers. Who are these people, what motivates them, and why should you care?
Consider these facts: Everything around us is turning into computers. Your typewriter is gone, replaced by a computer. Your phone has turned into a computer. So has your camera. Soon your TV will. Your car was not only designed on computers, but has more processing power in it than a room-sized mainframe did in 1970. Letters, encyclopedias, newspapers, and even your local store are being replaced by the Internet.
Hackers & Painters: Big Ideas from the Computer Age, by Paul Graham, explains this world and the motivations of the people who occupy it. In clear, thoughtful prose that draws on illuminating historical examples, Graham takes readers on an unflinching exploration into what he calls "an intellectual Wild West."
The ideas discussed in this book will have a powerful and lasting impact on how we think, how we work, how we develop technology, and how we live. Topics include the importance of beauty in software design, how to make wealth, heresy and free speech, the programming language renaissance, the open-source movement, digital design, internet startups, and more.

Cybercrime is the fastest growing area of crime as more criminals seek to exploit the speed, convenience and anonymity that the Internet provides to commit a diverse range of criminal activities. Today's online crime includes attacks against computer data and systems, identity theft, distribution of child pornography, penetration of online financial services, using social networks to commit crimes, and the deployment of viruses, botnets, and email scams such as phishing. Symantec's 2012 Norton Cybercrime Report stated that the world spent an estimated $110 billion to combat cybercrime, an average of nearly $200 per victim.
Law enforcement agencies and corporate security officers around the world with the responsibility for enforcing, investigating and prosecuting cybercrime are overwhelmed, not only by the sheer number of crimes being committed but by a lack of adequate training material. This book provides that fundamental knowledge, including how to properly collect and document online evidence, trace IP addresses, and work undercover.Provides step-by-step instructions on how to investigate crimes onlineCovers how new software tools can assist in online investigationsDiscusses how to track down, interpret, and understand online electronic evidence to benefit investigationsDetails guidelines for collecting and documenting online evidence that can be presented in court
Despite the widespread threat of disruption, many large companies in traditional industries have succeeded at digitizing their businesses in truly transformative ways.
The New York Times, formerly a bastion of traditional media, has created a thriving digital product behind a carefully designed paywall. Best Buy has transformed its business in the face of Amazon's threat. John Deere has formed a data-analysis arm to complement its farm-equipment business. And Goldman Sachs and many others are using digital technologies to reimagine their businesses. In Driving Digital Strategy, Harvard Business School professor Sunil Gupta provides an actionable framework for following their lead.
For over a decade, Gupta has studied digital transformation at Fortune 500 companies. He knows what works and what doesn't. Merely dabbling in digital or launching a small independent unit, which many companies do, will not bring success. Instead you need to fundamentally change the core of your business and ensure that your digital strategy touches all aspects of your organization: your business model, value chain, customer relationships, and company culture. Gupta covers each aspect in vivid detail while providing navigation tips and best practices along the way.
Filled with rich and illuminating case studies of companies at the forefront of digital transformation, Driving Digital Strategy is the comprehensive guide you need to take full advantage of the limitless opportunities the digital age provides.
