The Googlization of everything : (and why we should worry) by Siva Vaidhyanathan( Book )

26 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the beginning, the World Wide Web was exciting and open to the point of anarchy, a vast and intimidating repository of unindexed confusion. Into this creative chaos came Google with its dazzling mission--"To organize the world's information and make it universally accessible"--And its much-quoted motto, "Don't be evil." In this provocative book, Siva Vaidhyanathan examines the ways we have used and embraced Google--and the growing resistance to its expansion across the globe. He exposes the dark side of our Google fantasies, raising red flags about issues of intellectual property and the much-
Copyrights and copywrongs : the rise of intellectual property and how it threatens creativity by Siva Vaidhyanathan( Book )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Chinese and held by 1,719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Copyright reflects far more than economic interests. Embedded within conflicts over royalties and infringement are cultural values - about access, ownership, free speech, race, class, and democracy - which influence how rights are determined and enforced. Questions of legitimacy - of what constitutes "intellectual property" or "fair use," and of how to locate a precise moment of cultural creation - have become enormously complicated in recent years, as advances in technology have exponentially increased the speed of cultural reproduction and dissemination. In Copyrights and Copywrongs, Siva Vaidhyanathan tracks the history of American copyright law through the twentieth century, from Mark Twain's vehement exhortations for "thick" copyright protection to recent lawsuits regarding sampling in rap music and the "digital moment," exemplified by the rise of Napster and MP3 technology. He argues that in its current punitive, highly restrictive form, American copyright law hinders cultural production, thereby contributing to the poverty of civic culture"--Jacket
The anarchist in the library : how the clash between freedom and control is hacking the real world and crashing the system by Siva Vaidhyanathan( Book )

18 editions published between 1461 and 2005 in English and Thai and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The recording industry has sued the music downloaders into submission, but as a model of communication, their effects still echo around the world. The proliferation of such peer-to-peer networks may appear to threaten many established institutions, and the backlash against them could be even worse than the problems they create. Their effects - good and bad - resonate far beyond markets for music. They are altering our sense of the possible, extending our cultural and political imaginations." "Unregulated networks of communication have existed as long as gossip has. But with the rise of electronic communication, they are exponentially more important. And they are drawing the contours of a struggle over information that will determine much of the culture and politics of our century, from unauthorized fan edits of Star Wars to terrorist organizations' reliance on "leaderless resistance." The Anarchist in the Library is the first guide to one of the most important cultural and economic developments of our time."--Jacket

La grande G : come Google domina il mondo e perché dovremmo preoccuparci by Siva Vaidhyanathan( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in Italian and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All'inizio c'era il World Wide Web, eccitante e aperto fino all'anarchia, una miniera enorme e un po' inquietante di caos creativo non indicizzato. Poi venne Google con la sua impressionante missione: organizzare le informazioni a livello mondiale e renderle universalmente accessibili e fruibili. Oggi Google sembra onnisciente, onnipotente e onnipresente. E sostiene anche di essere un'azienda benevola. Non sorprende perciò che la rispettiamo quasi come una divinità. Ma che cosa guadagniamo o perdiamo permettendole di essere la lente attraverso cui vediamo il mondo? Stiamo muovendoci lungo una strada che porta a un'era più illuminata o ci stiamo avvicinando a un futuro di controllo e sorveglianza sociale? E che effetto potrà avere l'egemonia del motore di ricerca sullo sviluppo della nostra cultura? Per rispondere a queste e altre domande, Siva Vaidhyanathan - tra i più quotati analisti ed esperti di Internet -, esamina in profondità l'influenza spesso insidiosa di Google nella società e suggerisce che potremmo vivere meglio imparando a vederla come una semplice azienda invece che come una forza del bene, prendendo atto che noi con le nostre fantasie, feticci, predilezioni e preferenze - non siamo i suoi clienti ma il prodotto che vende agli inserzionisti

The cryptopticon : the legal, ethical, and intellectual implications of "big data"( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The emergence of networks, algorithms, and processing power, and the willingness of states and private firms to collect massive amounts of data on individual identities and habits, raise significant questions about how we should regulate such practices via norms, laws, and code. Intellectual property, privacy, and the complex relationship between the two are among these challenges. This talk will consider some ideas that could illuminate the challenges and opportunities we face in the Era of Big Data
Virtual ritual, real enactment : an examination of the conditions for online religious ritual as enacted symbol by Cheryl A Casey( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The study applies a "media-specific analysis," which highlights how the material form of a medium affects the experience of reading or using a text. In this study, however, a media-specific analysis does not simply consider the architecture of the Web in order to determine how that structure impacts the enactment of ritual, but instead acknowledges the convergence of two media, cyberspace and religious ritual, in a single environment. Using criteria provided by ritual studies, this analysis first identifies the formal elements of rituals from a variety of faiths as they are performed in cyberspace, noting the continuities and breaks between the online rituals and prior ritual performances. Turning to the second media environment, the investigation then examines how cyberspace constructs a legitimate instance of the phenomenon of space in which symbols are enacted and mobilized, dovetailing these observations with those made about the form and function of sample online rituals. This dissertation offers some conclusions about the enactment of religious symbols in cyberspace, suggesting that cyberspace is a virtual medium with a special difference as far as religion is concerned
