The infinite resource : the power of ideas on a finite planet by Ramez Naam( )

14 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate change. Finite fossil fuels. Fresh water depletion. Rising commodity prices. Ocean acidification. Overpopulation. Deforestation. Feeding the world's billions. We're beset by an array of natural resource and environmental challenges. They pose a tremendous risk to human prosperity, to world peace, and to the planet itself. Yet, if we act, these problems are addressable. Throughout history we've overcome similar problems, but only when we've focused our energies on innovation. For the most valuable resource we have isn't oil, water, gold, or land - it's our stockpile of useful ideas, and our continually growing capacity to expand them. In this remarkable book, Ramez Naam charts a course to supercharge innovation - by changing the rules of our economy - that can lead the whole world to greater wealth and human well-being, even as we dodge looming resource crunches and environmental disasters and reduce our impact on the planet

Apex Science-Fiction-Thriller by Ramez Naam( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Vereinigten Staaten, China und viele andere Länder werden von Aufständen erschüttert. Geheimnisse, Lügen und der technische Fortschritt haben auf der ganzen Welt Schockwellen ausgelöst, die von Land zu Land und von Kopf zu Kopf ziehen. Polizeistreitkräfte liefern sich Kämpfe mit neural vernetzten Protestanten. Das Militär wurde mobilisiert, überall droht die politische Ordnung zusammenzubrechen. Die durch die Nano-Droge Nexus ausgelöste Revolution hat begonnen. Innerhalb dieser Wirren und in einer Welt, in der die Kinder jener tiefgreifenden Veränderungen des menschlichen Wesens an Einfluss gewinnen, verfolgt eine totgeglaubte Wissenschaftlerin einen Rachefeldzug, sämtliche elektronisch gesteuerten Systeme des Planeten unter ihre Kontrolle zu bringen und die Welt nach ihrem Bild neu zu erschaffen. Nichts wird jemals wieder so sein wie zuvor. Ramez Naams Nexus-Trilogie gehört zu den wichtigsten Science-Fiction-Werken unserer Zeit und lotet auf geradezu bewusstseinsverändernde Weise die philosophischen, politischen und nicht zuletzt post-humanistischen Folgen der Verschmelzung von Mensch und Technik aus. Mit APEX erscheint nun der dritte und abschließende Teil der Saga in deutscher Sprache. "Gut. Erschreckend gut." [Wired] "Ein hervorragend aufgebauter High-Tech-Thriller voller herrlich nachdenklicher moralischer Ambivalenz ... ein verdammt guter Roman." [Cory Doctorow] "Reich an Charakteren und knackigen Actionszenen. Besonders die Ausblicke auf die Welt von Morgen sind faszinierend." [Publishers Weekly] "Ähnlich wie Michael Crichton beweist Naam ein Gespür dafür, hochaktuelle wissenschaftliche Thesen über das Medium eines massenkompatiblen Pageturners zu vermitteln." [SFX Magazine] "Ramez Naam ist der einzig wahre Nachfolger von Michael Crichton." [Scott Harrison, Autor von Archangel]

More than human : embracing the promise of biological enhancement by Ramez Naam( Recording )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It sounds like the stuff of science fiction, but these are true phenomena that have recently become hot topics in mainstream media. But while technology is enhancing the lives of many, it has also created a host of controversial capabilities, ranging from cloning to genetic engineering. [This book] offers [a] tour of the way technology is impacting our lives. [In the book, the author] shares an impassioned vision for the future, with revealing insight into the ethical dilemmas posed by twenty-first-century science. Encouraging us to celebrate rather than fear these innovations, [he] separates fact from myth with elegant lucidity, arguing that these controversial technologies have the power to transform the human race for the better. [He also] offers much-needed wisdom in the raging debates between technophobes and technophiles, and everyone else seeking to understand the marvelous possibilities that arise when mind meets machine.-http://www.loc.gov/catdir
