'A blisteringly good, urgent, essential read' ZADIE SMITH Jaron Lanier, the world-famous Silicon Valley scientist-pioneer and 'high-tech genius' (Sunday Times) who first alerted us to the dangers of social media, explains why its toxic effects are at the heart of its design, and explains in ten simple arguments why liberating yourself from its hold will transform your life and the world for the better. Social media is making us sadder, angrier, less empathetic, more fearful, more isolated and more tribal. In recent months it has become horribly clear that social media is not bringing us together - it is tearing us apart. In Ten Arguments For Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now Jaron Lanier draws on his insider's expertise to explain precisely how social media works - by deploying constant surveillance and subconscious manipulation of its users - and why its cruel and dangerous effects are at the heart of its current business model and design. As well as offering ten simple arguments for liberating yourself from its addictive hold, his witty and urgent manifesto outlines a vision for an alternative that provides all the benefits of social media without the harm. So, if you want a happier life, a more just and peaceful world, or merely the chance to think for yourself without being monitored and influenced by the richest corporations in history, then the best thing you can do, for now, is delete your social media accounts - right now. You will almost certainly become a calmer and possibly a nicer person in the process.

From the moment we wake up and unlock our phones, we're producing data. We offer up our unique fingerprint to the online world, scan our route to work, listen to a guided meditation or favourite playlist, slide money around, share documents and update our social media accounts. We reach for our phones up to 200 times a day, not knowing which companies are storing, using, selling and manipulating our data. But do we care? We're busy. We've got lives. We're pressed for time! There aren't enough hours in the day to read the terms and conditions. Or, maybe we're happy to trade our personal data for convenient services and to make our lives easier? Big data is the phenomenon of our age, but should we trust it without question? This is the trust dilemma. In 2009, Damian Bradfield founded WeTransfer, the largest file-sharing platform in the world with 44 million global users shipping more than one billion files of data a month. His unique experience of the big data economy has led him to question if there is another way to build the internet, one that is fairer and safer for everyone and, in The Trust Manifesto, he lays out this vision. Damian Bradfield is the President, CMO and founding shareholder of WeTransfer, a company that now has over 44 million global users. He is also the co-founder of Present Plus, a design and experience-driven venture studio. Named 'one of the most influential voices in tech today' by Forbes magazine, Bradfield speaks to audiences globally on the topics of innovation, education and the arts and his work has appeared in Fast Company, the Financial Times and Business Insider amongst others.

'I didn't have a burning desire to make a product for mums. I didn't have a burning desire to make a product at all. My moti-vation was to be the master of my own destiny, to work for my-self rather than 'the man.' If someone told me before I started my business that my cofounder would bail, that I'd be on the brink of bankruptcy and that I'd get into a jumbled mess with my investors-all while raising four daughters-would I still have done it? Hell yeah. But that's because I'm a loud and feisty Aussie chick. If you're reading this, you probably have some guts too. Believe me, I was never supposed to be an entrepreneur. I was just another thirty-something full-time corporate cog, wife and mother who didn't know a damn thing about business. But I knew in my bones that aden + anais, a boutique swaddle company my friend and I thought up on the floor of my baby's nursery, would be successful. And, would you look at that, I was right. I'm here to tell you, that you do have what it takes to start a business, change careers, be successful-and maybe even tell your micromanaging boss to go shove it. I succeeded, despite all the odds and curveballs thrown my way, and you can too. You don't need an MBA, you just need an idea you believe in, the ability to work your arse off and a desire to learn more. So get ready to check your doubts at the door and jump in.

Zucked - Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe (Paperback): Roger McNamee Zucked - Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe (Paperback)
Roger McNamee 1
R403 R267 Discovery Miles 2 670 Save R136 (34%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This is the dramatic story of how a noted tech venture capitalist, an early mentor to Mark Zuckerberg and investor in his company, woke up to the serious damage Facebook was doing to our society and set out to try to stop it.

If you had told Roger McNamee three years ago that he would soon be devoting himself to stopping Facebook from destroying democracy, he would have howled with laughter. He had mentored many tech leaders in his illustrious career as an investor, but few things had made him prouder, or been better for his fund's bottom line, than his early service to Mark Zuckerberg. Still a large shareholder in Facebook, he had every good reason to stay on the bright side. Until he simply couldn't.

Zucked is McNamee's intimate reckoning with the catastrophic failure of the head of one of the world's most powerful companies to face up to the damage he is doing. It's a story that begins with a series of rude awakenings. First there is the author's dawning realization that the platform is being manipulated by some very bad actors. Then there is the even more unsettling realization that Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg are unable or unwilling to share his concerns, polite as they may be to his face.

And then comes Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, and the emergence of one horrific piece of news after another about the malign ends to which the Facebook platform has been put. To McNamee's shock, Facebook's leaders still duck and dissemble, viewing the matter as a public relations problem. Now thoroughly alienated, McNamee digs into the issue, and fortuitously meets up with some fellow travellers who share his concerns, and help him sharpen its focus. Soon he and a dream team of Silicon Valley technologists are charging into the fray, to raise consciousness about the existential threat of Facebook, and the persuasion architecture of the attention economy more broadly – to our public health and to our political order.

Zucked is both an enthralling personal narrative and a masterful explication of the forces that have conspired to place us all on the horns of this dilemma. This is the story of a company and its leadership, but it's also a larger tale of a business sector unmoored from normal constraints, at a moment of political and cultural crisis, the worst possible time to be given new tools for summoning the darker angels of our nature and whipping them into a frenzy. This is a wise, hard-hitting, and urgently necessary account that crystallizes the issue definitively for the rest of us.

An unflinching look at a hidden world most people don't know exists-one of stalking, blackmail, and sexual violence, online and off-and the incredible story of how one lawyer turned her own hell into a revolution. "We are all a moment away from having our life overtaken by somebody hell-bent on our destruction." That grim reality-gleaned from personal experience and twenty years of trauma work -is a fundamental principle of Carrie Goldberg's cutting-edge victims' rights law firm. Riveting and an essential timely conversation-starter, Nobody's Victim invites readers to join Carrie on the front lines of the war against sexual violence and privacy violations as she fights for revenge porn and sextortion laws, and sues the hell out of tech companies, schools and powerful sexual predators. Her battleground is the courtroom; her crusade is to transform clients from victims into warriors. With breathtaking honesty, Carrie also shares her own shattering story about why she began her work and the uphill battle of building a business. Deeply personal yet achingly universal, Nobody's Victim is a bold and much-needed analysis of victim protection in the era of the Internet. This book is an urgent warning of a coming crisis, a predictor of imminent danger, and a weapon to take back control and protect ourselves-both online and off.

How to be a great online searcher, demonstrated with step-by-step searches for answers to a series of intriguing questions (for example, "Is that plant poisonous?"). We all know how to look up something online by typing words into a search engine. We do this so often that we have made the most famous search engine a verb: we Google it-"Japan population" or "Nobel Peace Prize" or "poison ivy" or whatever we want to know. But knowing how to Google something doesn't make us search experts; there's much more we can do to access the massive collective knowledge available online. In The Joy of Search, Daniel Russell shows us how to be great online researchers. We don't have to be computer geeks or a scholar searching out obscure facts; we just need to know some basic methods. Russell demonstrates these methods with step-by-step searches for answers to a series of intriguing questions-from "what is the wrong side of a towel?" to "what is the most likely way you will die?" Along the way, readers will discover essential tools for effective online searches-and learn some fascinating facts and interesting stories. Russell explains how to frame search queries so they will yield information and describes the best ways to use such resources as Google Earth, Google Scholar, Wikipedia, and Wikimedia. He shows when to put search terms in double quotes, how to use the operator (*), why metadata is important, and how to triangulate information from multiple sources. By the end of this engaging journey of discovering, readers will have the definitive answer to why the best online searches involve more than typing a few words into Google.

Using a series of current and futuristic examples - appliances, personal assistants, robots, driverless cars, customer care, engineering, monetization, and many more - the book covers use cases, technology and communication aspects of how machines will support individuals and organizations. This book examines the Cognitive Things covering a number of important questions: * What are Cognitive Things? * What applications can be driven from Cognitive Things - today and tomorrow? * How will these Cognitive Things collaborate with each and other, with individuals and with organizations? * What is the cognitive era? How is it different from the automation era? * How will the Cognitive Things support or accelerate human problem solving? * Which technical components make up cognitive behavior? * How does it redistribute the work-load between humans and machines? * What types of data can be collected from them and shared with external organizations? * How do they recognize and authenticate authorized users? How is the data safeguarded from potential theft? Who owns the data and how are the data ownership rights enforced? Overall, Sathi explores ways in which Cognitive Things bring value to individuals as well as organizations and how to integrate the use of the devices into changing organizational structures. Case studies are used throughout to illustrate how innovators are already benefiting from the initial explosion of devices and data. Business executives, operational managers, and IT professionals will understand the fundamental changes required to fully benefit from cognitive technologies and how to utilize them for their own success.
