Beyond calculation : the next fifty years of computing by Peter J Denning( Book )
17 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and Chinese and held by 827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In March 1997, the Association for Computing Machinery will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the electronic computer. To understand what an extraordinary fifty years the computer has had, you need only look around you--probably no farther than your desk. Computers are everywhere: in our cars, our homes, our supermarkets, at the phone company office, and at your local hospital. But as the contributors to this volume make clear, the scientific, social and economic impact of computers is only beginning to be felt. These sixteen invited essays on the future of computing take on a dazzling variety of topics, with opinions from such experts as Gordon Bell, Sherry Turkle, Edsger W. Dijkstra, Paul Abraham, Donald Norman, Franz Alt, and David Gelernter. This brilliantly eclectic collection, commissioned to celebrate a major milestone in an ongoing technological revolution, will fascinate anybody with an interest in computers and where they're taking us

Nerds 2.0.1 a brief history of the Internet ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A three part series examining the ins and outs of one of the most volatile industries: the Internet. In this final episode we visit Excite, a typical Silicon Valley entrepreneurial adventure. Then we unlock the making of the World Wide Web, created by Tim Berners-Lee in Geneva, who made "http://www" the star it is today. While the World Wide Web was making the Internet available to more people, it still wasn't a friendly experience. Netscape and Microsoft changed all that so the Internet has become a 24-hour a day medium where people can do business, chat and go shopping
Priming cooperation in social dilemma games by Michalis Drouvelis( )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Research on public goods mainly focuses its attention on the ability of incentives, beliefs and group structure to affect behaviour in social dilemma interactions. This paper investigates the pure effects of a rather subtle mechanism on social preferences in a one-shot linear public good game. Using priming techniques from social psychology, we activate the concept of cooperation and explore the extent to which this intervention brings about changes in people's voluntary contributions to the public good and self-reported emotional responses. Our findings suggest that priming cooperation increases contribution levels, controlling for subjects' gender. Our priming effect is much stronger for females than for males. This difference can be explained by a shift in subjects' beliefs about contributions. We also find a significant impact of priming on mean positive emotional responses. -- Priming ; contributions ; beliefs ; emotional responses ; public goods experiments

Student effort and educational attainment : using the England football team to identify the education production function by Robert M Metcalfe( )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We use a sharp, exogenous and repeated change in the value of leisure to identify the impact of student effort on educational achievement. The treatment arises from the partial overlap of the world's major international football tournaments with the exam period in England. Our data enable a clean difference-in-difference design. Performance is measured using the high-stakes tests that all students take at the end of compulsory schooling. We find a strongly significant effect: the average impact of a fall in effort is 0.12 SDs of student performance, significantly larger for male and disadvantaged students, as high as many educational policies
