In lively, mordantly witty prose, Negroponte decodes the mysteries--and debunks the hype--surrounding bandwidth, multimedia, virtual reality, and the Internet, and explains why such touted innovations as the fax and the CD-ROM are likely to go the way of the BetaMax. "Succinct and readable. . . . If you suffer from digital anxiety . . . here is a book that lays it all out for you."--Newsday.

Sponsored by the Communication and Information Technologies Section of the American Sociological Association, this volume brings together nine studies of mediated childhood and youth. The studies shed light on the emerging contours of young people’s web engagements and social practices. More specifically, the volume contains research speaking to scholarship dealing with four key topics: digital differentiation, media use, social problems, and cyberbullying. In the first section, authors address timely topics about social inequalities arising from unequal web use among children and teens. In the following section, the contributions reveal decision making processes about negotiating mediated communication by college students in Finland and the United States. Subsequently, in section three, the research offers solutions to social problems created by online threats and ever expanding advertising targeting children. Finally, the volume closes with research on cyberbullying as a moral panic and upstanders who stand up to cyberbullies. Taken together, the contributions raise far-reaching questions about how childhood and young adulthood is mediated and shaped by digital experiences.

Digital developments have extended the range of text objects we can reproduce and investigate critically. Should all future texts be produced in digital or online form, or does print, developed over five centuries, still influence how we think about text in all its forms? This important book discusses whether, and how, existing paradigms for developing and using critical editions are changing to reflect the increased commitment to, and assumed significance of, digital tools and methodologies.

The first generation of Digital Natives children who were born into and raised in the digital world are coming of age, and soon our world will be reshaped in their image. Our economy, our politics, our culture, and even the shape of our family life will be forever transformed. But who are these Digital Natives? And what is the world theyre creating going to look like? In Born Digital, leading Internet and technology experts John Palfrey and Urs Gasser offer a sociological portrait of these young people, who can seem, even to those merely a generation older, both extraordinarily sophisticated and strangely narrow. Exploring a broad range of issues, from the highly philosophical to the purely practical, Born Digital will be essential reading for parents, teachers, and the myriad of confused adults who want to understand the digital present and shape the digital future.

"Leading Digital makes the provocative argument that the next imminent phase of digital technology adoption - driven by the convergence of mobility, analytics, social media, cloud computing, and embedded devices - will make everything that's happened so far look like a prelude. The authors, a trio of highly regarded thought leaders on corporate digital transformation, say changes in the digital realm so far have focused on high tech and media companies - but there's still a whopping 94% of the business economy that needs to change. This book will show them how. George Westerman of MIT, Didier Bonnet of Capgemini Consulting, and Andrew McAfee, also at MIT, say there is opportunity for these businesses to learn from those that have already mastered the digital landscape. Based on a study of more than 400 large, mainstream firms in every industry around the globe, the authors usefully break down how these organizations have used their own digital transformation to gain strategic, competitive advantage. Readers will learn how these digital leaders have transformed their businesses through smart and rigorous digital investments, and through smart and effective leadership of the change. Leading Digital offers practical, real-life tested frameworks that can be instantly applied. Case studies include Nike, Caesars, Burberry, Asian Paints, Pages Jaunes, Codelco, and more"--
