Es lebe das Internet! Hier kann jeder alles werden: Das neue Topmodel, der erfolgreichste Youtube-Star oder ein Bestseller-Autor. Auch Anja beschließt aus der grauen Masse der "Normalos" auszubrechen um ihrem Leben eine völlig neue Richtung zu geben. Sie entdeckt ihr schriftstellerisches Talent und schreibt kleine und äußerst belanglose Gedichte. Die Leserschaft jubelt ihr zu, Anja hält sich für ein Naturtalent.Sie wird sogar zum "Internet-Darling" gekürt. Nun gibt der neue Star am Dichterhimmel so richtig Gas: Ihre geistigen Ergüsse müssten doch auch in einem Buch zum Bestseller werden. Sie gerät an einen Druckkostenzuschussverlag und erlebt, wie es sich anfühlt, plötzlich im Schlamassel zu stecken. Auch ihre "Fans" wenden sich von ihr ab. Klaus Enser-Schlag, Hörspielautor aus Leidenschaft, zeigt in seiner neuen Kurzgeschichte einmal mehr die Risiken und Nebenwirkungen der digitalen Welt: Völlige Selbstüberschätzung und Realitätsverlust stellen so mancher Eitelkeit ein Bein. In dieser satirischen Story ist nichts, wie es scheint und scheint nichts, wie es ist...

Media Power in Central America is the first book in a generation to explore the media landscape in Central America. It captures the political and cultural interplay between the media and those in power in Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, and Nicaragua. Highlighting the subtle strangulation of opposition media voices in the region, the authors show how the years since the guerrilla wars have not yielded the free media systems that some had expected. Country by country, the authors deal with the specific conditions of government-sponsored media repression, economic censorship, corruption, and consumer trends that shape the political landscape. Challenging the notion of the media as a democratizing force, Media Power in Central America shows how the media are used to block democratic reforms in the region and outlines the difficulties of playing watchdog to rulers who use the media as a tool of power.

Expert advice from Coca-Cola’s Vice President of Innovation and Entrepreneurship: Learn how the world’s largest beverage brand uses design to grow its business by combining the advantages of a large-scale company with the agility of a nimble startup. Every company needs both scale and agility to win. From a fledging startup in Nepal, to a century-old multinational in New York, scale and agility are two qualities that are essential to every company’s success. Start-ups understand agility. They know just when to pivot to stay alive. But what they haven’t mastered yet is how to stabilize their business model so they can move to the next stage and become full-fledged companies. And well-established companies know scale. They are successful because they know how to leverage size with a high degree of effectiveness and efficiency. But what worries them most is staying competitive in a world of increasing uncertainty and change, complicated by upstarts searching for ways to disrupt the industry. So what is the key to creating the kind of scale and agility necessary to stay competitive in this day and age? The answer is design. In Design to Grow, a Coca-Cola senior executive shares both the successes and failures of one of the world’s largest companies as it learns to use design to be both agile and big. In this rare and unprecedented behind-the-scenes look, David Butler and senior Fast Company editor, Linda Tischler, use plain language and easy-to-understand case studies to show how this works at Coca-Cola—and how other companies can use the same approach to grow their business. This book is a must-read for managers inside large corporations as well as entrepreneurs just getting started.

Experts agree: The turbulence triggered by the economic shock of 2008 constitutes the "new normal." Unfortunately, too many managers have become paralyzed by it, capable only of slashing costs indiscriminately. Though examining spending during recessions makes sense, the smartest executives do much more. As Scott Anthony reveals in The Silver Lining, these leaders continue innovating--by stopping ineffective initiatives, changing key business processes, and starting more productive behaviors. Result? Their companies emerge from downturns stronger than ever. Providing a wealth of ideas, tools, and examples from diverse industries, Anthony explains how to safeguard your company's profitability during even the toughest recessions. You'll discover how to: -Prune your innovation and business portfolio to liberate resources for more promising initiatives - Adopt a radical new market-segmentation scheme that helps you re-feature your offerings to reduce costs while delivering new value to customers - Reinvent your innovation process to drive fresh growth - Mitigate innovation risks by conducting strategic experiments and forging alliances with customers and other external entities - Appeal to increasingly value-conscious customers to fend off low-cost attackers In today's brutal economic climate, executives must pare costs to the bone while planting and nurturing seeds for tomorrow's growth. The Silver Lining explains how to master this seemingly impossible challenge.

What happens when a naive intern is granted unfettered access to people's most private thoughts and actions? Stephen Thorpe lands a coveted internship at Ubatoo, an Internet empire that provides its users with popular online services, from a search engine and e-mail, to social networking. When Stephen’s boss asks him to work on a project with the American Coalition for Civil Liberties, Stephen innocently obliges, believing he is mining Ubatoo’s vast databases to protect people unfairly targeted in the name of national security. But nothing is as it seems. Suspicious individuals surface, doing all they can to access Ubatoo’s wealth of confidential information. This need not require technical wizardry—simply knowing how to manipulate a well-intentioned intern may be enough. The Silicon Jungle is a cautionary fictional tale of data mining’s promise and peril. Baluja raises ethical questions about contemporary technological innovations, and how minute details can be routinely pieced together into rich profiles that reveal our habits, goals, and secret desires—all ready to be exploited.

If someone were to ask Lance Austin to put into words, his feelings and his beliefs about love, he would be hard pressed to provide a short definitive answer. Ask him to show a particular woman that he loves herand you would be wasting your time. He will have already strapped himself into his 100 M.P.H., high flying roller coaster and taken off into his over-the-top expressions of true endearment for whomever he has chosen as his mate. When Lance takes his love journey onto the internet for the first time in his life, he does find love; but will it last? Will the life changing experience that Melanie Powell brings to the table, be for the better in their lives or for the worst? The sexual experiences they share are extraordinary and often. The poems and love letters he writes to her are excessive. They often exchange extravagant gifts and they experience many new venues together; and oh, lets not forget the arguing and the fighting that comes gift wrapped with all of the above. Will this potentially lethal combination prove to be their downfall in an attempt at everlasting love? In between all of that, Lance manages to meet other cyber space hopefuls online; though his heart is still with Melanie. There are a variety of reasons why he shouldnt be with any of these women but he allows himself to entertain the thought of it anyway. He meets some of them in person at least once, finding himself strapped into another kind of roller coaster; one that is mentally challenging, humorous, painfully dramatic, yet ultimately disappointing. Lance begins to reflect upon his own internal qualities and only time will tell in which direction his emotions will take him from a moral stand point. When Lance turns to his family and friends for a certain sense of solitude, most of them bring their own emotional problems to light, in ways that surprise even Lance. One platonic friendship he hopes to find some level of comfort in, that of Sherry Anderson starts to go into its own version of a mental tail-spin for him. He is curious to say the least, about Sherrys overall intentions and if theres more to their friendship than meets the eye. To measure the emotional value of this depiction of nearly five years of Lance Austins life is impossible to do. This journey for him is about life itself with the technological trend of the internet dating craze as the main back drop. Where will Lance wind up morally, mentally, spiritually, after meeting over a dozen of these cyber space women? Find out when you read Internet Dating!!
