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

48 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 2,176 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 book, the author 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 touted Google Book Search. He assesses Google's global impact, particularly in China, and explains the insidious effect of Googlization on the way we think. Finally, he proposes the construction of an Internet ecosystem designed to benefit the whole world and keep one brilliant and powerful company from falling into the "evil" it pledged to avoid
Copyrights and copywrongs : the rise of intellectual property and how it threatens creativity by Siva Vaidhyanathan( Book )

24 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 1,641 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 )

20 editions published between 1461 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,285 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

The Indonesian Chinese: Their search for identity and development of collective memory through the media by Aimee Dawis( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines how the Indonesian Chinese born after 1966 negotiate meanings about their culture and identity through their collective memory of growing up in a restrictive media environment that specifically curtailed Chinese language and culture. The restrictive media environment was the result of a series of policies administered during the Suharto era (1965--1998). According to the regulations, the Indonesian government closed all Chinese-language schools, prohibited the use of Chinese characters in public places, the import of Chinese-language publications, and all public forms and expressions of Chinese culture
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 7 WorldCat member libraries 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

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
