The internet is not the answer by Andrew Keen( Book )

47 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 1,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its creation during the Cold War, the Internet, together with the World Wide Web, personal computers, tablets, and smartphones, has ushered in the Digital Revolution, one of the greatest shifts in society since the Industrial Revolution. There are many positive ways in which the Internet has contributed to the world, but as a society we are less aware of the Internet's deeply negative effects. In 2007, Andrew Keen, a longtime Silicon Valley-based observer of the digital world and a serial Internet entrepreneur, published one of the first Internet-skeptic books, The Cult of the Amateur, which asked how quality content can be created in an online environment that demands everything for free. In Keen's new book, The Internet Is Not the Answer, he offers a comprehensive look at what the Internet is doing to our lives. The book traces the technological and economic history of the Internet, from its founding in the 1960s to the creation of the World Wide Web in 1989, through the waves of start-ups and the rise of the big data companies to the increasing attempts to monetize almost every human activity. Successful Internet companies have produced astronomical returns on investment, and venture capital and the profit motive have become the primary drivers of innovation. In this sharp, witty narrative, informed by the work of other writers, reporters, and recent academic studies as well as his own research and interviews, Keen shows us the tech world, warts and all--from hoodie-wearing misfit millionaires, to the NSA's all-encompassing online surveillance, to the impact of the Internet on unemployment and economic inequality. The Internet Is Not the Answer is a big-picture look at what the Internet is doing to our society and an investigation into what we can do to try to make sure that the decisions we are making about the reconfiguring of our world do not lead to unpleasant, unforeseen aftershocks"--
The cult of the amateur : how today's internet is killing our culture by Andrew Keen( Book )

29 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Silicon Valley insider and pundit Andrew Keen claims that today's new participatory Web 2.0 threatens our values, economy, and ultimately the very innovation and creativity that forms the fabric of American achievement. In today's self-broadcasting culture, where amateurism is celebrated and anyone with an opinion, however ill-informed, can publish a blog, post a video on YouTube, or change an entry on Wikipedia, the distinction between trained expert and uninformed amateur becomes blurred. When bloggers and videographers, unconstrained by professional standards or editorial filters, can manipulate public opinion, truth becomes a commodity to be bought, sold, packaged, and reinvented. The anonymity that Web 2.0 offers calls into question the reliability of the information we receive and creates an environment in which sexual predators and identity thieves can roam free. Keen urges us to consider the consequences of supporting a culture that endorses plagiarism and piracy and weakens traditional media and creative institutions.--From publisher description
Digital vertigo : how today's online social revolution is dividing, diminishing, and disorienting us by Andrew Keen( Book )

20 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Digital Vertigo provides an articulate, measured, contrarian voice against a sea of hype about social media. As an avowed technology optimist, I'm grateful for Keen who makes me stop and think before committing myself fully to the social revolution."--Larry Downes, author of The Killer App In Digital Vertigo, Andrew Keen presents today's social media revolution as the most wrenching cultural transformation since the Industrial Revolution. Fusing a fast-paced historical narrative with front-line stories from today's online networking revolution and critiques of "social" companies like Groupon, Zynga and LinkedIn, Keen argues that the social media transformation is weakening, disorienting and dividing us rather than establishing the dawn of a new egalitarian and communal age. The tragic paradox of life in the social media age, Keen says, is the incompatibility between our internet longings for community and friendship and our equally powerful desire for online individual freedom. By exposing the shallow core of social networks, Andrew Keen shows us that the more electronically connected we become, the lonelier and less powerful we seem to be."--Provided by publisher
How to fix the future by Andrew Keen( Book )

14 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humanity has in the past undergone periods of creative destruction where improvements of social and economic conditions have come with harmful side effects. Keen identified five key tools: competitive innovation, consumer choice, regulation, social responsibility, and education, and then traveled the world to see how data commissioners, software developers, entrepreneurs and more are using these tools to make positive change. In an increasingly digital world, we must take steps to make the future something we can again look forward to
The cult of the amateur : how blogs, MySpace, YouTube, and the rest of today's user-generated media are destroying our economy, our culture, and our values by Andrew Keen( Book )

Demo:Polis Das Recht auf öffentlichen Raum( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In den vergangenen Jahren wurde die Bedeutung des öffentlichen Raums als Ort politischer Auseinandersetzung und gesellschaftlicher Emanzipation auf dringliche Weise sichtbar. Protestbewegungen wie der Arabische Frühling oder die Occupy-Demonstrationen haben - medial unterstützt - zu seiner neuerlichen Aufwertung sowohl in den Augen der Bevölkerung wie auch der Institutionen geführt. So ist der öffentliche Raum zu einem von verschiedenen Interessengruppen hart umkämpften Gut geworden: von Demonstranten und Nachbarschaftsinitiativen über Sport- und Musikveranstaltungen bis hin zu Kunstausstellungen und zur Nutzung als Werbefläche. Die Fragen, was wir heute unter <<öffentlichem Raum>> verstehen, wem dieser gehört und wie wir seine sichere und kostenfreie Nutzbarkeit für die Zukunft verhandeln, stehen hochaktuell im Zentrum politischer und öffentlicher Debatten. Diesen Themen geht das Buch <<Demo:Polis>> nach, das im Zusammenhang mit einer Ausstellung der Akademie der Künste Berlin entsteht. Die Ausstellung wird kuratiert von Wilfried Wang. Das Katalogbuch stellt in Essays internationaler Experten und in Fallstudien mit Blick auf Architektur, Soziologie, Kunst und Urbanismus exemplarische Projekte vor, etwa für das Tempelhofer Feld in Berlin, den Londoner Trafalgar Square, den Campo de Cebada in Madrid oder den Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York City. Behandelt werden aber auch künstlerische Interventionen im öffentlichen Raum, die darauf abzielen, den Status quo infrage zu stellen und neue Lesarten hinzuzufügen. (Quelle: www.buchhandel.de)
Dilettanti.com : come la rivoluzione del Web 2.0 sta uccidendo la nostra cultura e distruggendo la nostra economia by Andrew Keen( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in Italian and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Myspace e Facebook hanno generato una cultura giovanile fatta di narcisismo digitale; i siti open-source di condivisione della conoscenza come Wikipedia insidiano l'autorità degli insegnanti; la generazione YouTube è interessata all'auto-espressione, mentre la cacofonia dei blog anonimi e dei contenuti user-generated la rende insensibile alle voci dei veri esperti e dei giornalisti professionisti. Andrew Koen spiega in che modo i mass media tradizionali sano minacciati da una valanga di contenuti amatoriali gratuiti, anonimi e privi di restrizioni, e come la cultura del "copia-incolla" in rete derubi artisti, scrittori, giornalisti, musicisti, redattori e produttori del frutto del proprio lavoro creativo
Vertigine digitale : fragilità e disorientamento da social media by Andrew Keen( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in Italian and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il Web 3.0 di Facebook, Twitter, Google+ e Linkedln è veramente il luogo della massima socialità e della condivisione totale, dove tutti comunicano con tutti nel tempo e nello spazio? Non rischia di essere, se non lo è già, il luogo dell'iper realtà, dove si perde la distinzione tra realtà e irrealtà? Per Keen la rivoluzione dei social media è di fatto la più travisata e distorta trasformazione culturale dai tempi della Rivoluzione industriale. I social media stanno indebolendo e frammentando la nostra identità: essi ci disorientano e ci dividono, non instaurano affatto una nuova era comunitaria e di uguaglianza fra gli esseri umani. Il tragico paradosso della nostra vita è l'incompatibilità tra il nostro profondo desiderio di appartenenza alla comunità online e di amicizia e l'altrettanto forte desiderio di libertà individuale. Mentre si prevede che verso la metà del XXI secolo quasi ogni essere umano del pianeta sarà connesso elettronicamente, questo libro vuole essere una tesi contro la condivisione, l'apertura, la trasparenza personale, il grande esibizionismo
