Reinventing the automobile : personal urban mobility for the 21st century by William J Mitchell( Book )
25 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 991 libraries worldwide
This book provides a long-overdue vision for a new automobile era. The cars we drive today follow the same underlying design principles as the Model Ts of a hundred years ago. In the twenty-first century, cars are still made for twentieth-century purposes. They're well suited for conveying multiple passengers over long distances at high speeds, but inefficient for providing personal mobility within cities- where most of the world's people now live. William Mitchell and two industry experts reimagine the automobile, describing vehicles of the near future that are green, smart, connected, and fun to drive. They roll out four big ideas that will make this both feasible and timely. First, we must transform the DNA of the automobile, basing it on electric-drive and wireless communication rather than on petroleum and the internal combustion engine. This allows vehicles to become lighter, cleaner, and "smart" enough to avoid crashes and traffic jams. Second, automobiles need to be linked by a Mobility Internet that allows them to collect and share data on traffic conditions, intelligently coordinates their movements, and keeps drivers connected to their social networks. Third, automobiles must be recharged through a convenient, cost-effective infrastructure that is integrated with smart electric grids and makes increasing use of renewable energy sources. Finally, dynamically priced markets for electricity, road space, parking space, and shared-use vehicles must be introduced to provide optimum management of urban mobility and energy systems
E-topia : "Urban life, Jim--but not as we know it" by William J Mitchell( Book )
33 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 907 libraries worldwide
"The global digital network is not just a delivery system for email, Web pages, and digital television. It is a whole new form of urban infrastructure - one that will change the forms of our cities as dramatically as railroads, highways, electric power supply, and telephone networks did in the past. In this book, William J. Mitchell examines this new infrastructure and its implications for our future daily lives."--Jacket
The poetics of gardens by Charles Willard Moore( Book )
27 editions published between 1933 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 794 libraries worldwide
This is an entirely different garden book: a pattern book in which a score of landscapes and gardens are drawn, described, and analyzed not just as a bouquet of pleasures but as sources, lodes to be mined for materials, shapes and relationships, and ideas for transforming our own backyards
Me++ : the cyborg self and the networked city by William J Mitchell( Book )
28 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 591 libraries worldwide
"With Me++ the author of City of Bits and e-topia completes an informal trilogy examining the ramifications of information technology in everyday life. William Mitchell describes the transformation of wireless technology in the hundred years since Marconi: the scaling up of networks and the scaling down of the apparatus for transmission and reception. He examines the effects of wireless linkage, global interconnection, miniaturization, and portability on our bodies, our clothing, our architecture, our cities, and our uses of space and time."--Jacket
Placing words : symbols, space, and the city by William J Mitchell( Book )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 475 libraries worldwide
"The meaning of a message, says William Mitchell, depends on the context of its reception: Shouting "fire" in a crowded theater produces a dramatically different effect from barking the same word to a squad of soldiers with guns. In Placing Words, Mitchell looks at the ways in which urban spaces and places provide settings for communication and at how they conduct complex flows of information through the twenty-first century city."--Jacket
High technology and low-income communities : prospects for the positive use of advanced information technology by Bishwapriya Sanyal( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 437 libraries worldwide
"How will low-income communities be affected by the waves of social, economic, political, and cultural change that surround the new information technologies? How can we influence the outcome? This action-oriented book identifies the key issues, explores the evidence, and suggests some answers. Avoiding both utopianism and despair, the book presents the voices of technology enthusiasts and skeptics, as well as social activists."--Jacket
