"There are so many secrets packed in here, I have to wonder if the Illuminati will have this author assassinated" - Derrick Mennings, Marxist Internet Weekly Digest Written by an engineering expert with comprehensive knowledge of SEO marketing, computers, and the best Belgian beers to drink with them. Preview the book to enter enlightenment. Give Me A Couple Of Hours And I'll Turn You Into An Internet Wizard! There are other internet secrets books and they work as excellent paperweights and have some therapeutic benefits, too: you can use them to put you to sleep. This book is not to be equated with all those boring-as-all-hell books with dubious internet insights and SEO tips. Trust us: what you know about the internet isn't as much as you think you know. Beyond the basics, how clued in are you really about the internet? You probably know more about Bangladesh (which ain't much, right?) than you do about web development, link building, and search engine optimization. The internet may play an integral role in our lives, yet in informal testing, close to 92% of internet users scored no more than basic competence with it. Less than 16% had any legitimate knowledge of SEO marketing. I can hear you from here: "Basic competence is good enough for me. Why would I want or need to do more than that?" You can use the Google or Bing search engine (but lazily, not with any genuine optimization), get around the Gmail and Hotmail interfaces, buy an airline ticket at Expedia, order a book at Amazon, and post an update at Facebook. Is that mastery when anyone can do that? Complacency never does anyone any favors. If the complacent had won out, we'd still believe the world is flat and airplane flight is impossible. Do you really need to be told that the internet is one of those things you cannot afford to be complacent about? Your livelihood, your identity, your social networks, your ability to distinguish yourself from the competition will all one day be measured by the breadth and depth of your internet skills. Development of the web hasn't stood still. Should your skills? Every single one of these internet secrets will shoot your internet productivity into the stratosphere and leave you head and shoulders above your peers. We're not naive to think you don't know any of these secrets, but we're confident you don't know about most of them. Any of these 100+ internet insights will more than make up for the book's cost * Keep your computer and other devices protected: the best anti-virus & malware tools internet tools you should install to keep your computer, mobile phone, and tablet from being crippled. * Set up sharable internet networks wherever you happen to be, like standing in front of Buckingham Palace. * Start building your favorite link bookmarks across all internet browsers and platforms. * Avoid internet scams. * Download and view internet videos offline. Video streaming sucks bandwidth from your 4G plan. * Keep your identity safe. * Transfer large files. * Set up online music libraries so you can listen to your music anywhere, anytime. * Shop on the internet for the absolute best prices. * View web sites optimally on any device. * Remember your passwords for any site and situation. * And much, much more. Some of these internet secrets you could discover if you knew where to look, but it would take you months to collect the same knowledge you'll find here. Other internet tools we've picked up from years of experience. You won't find those gems anywhere else. Dump your other SEO books and for-idiots web development guides. You will not find another internet book this practical or enjoyable for any price. The new internet isn't going anywhere, but you should. Let's get going, with us as your guide along this infinitely more diverse Information Superhighway.

Empire in Waves

A Political History of Surfing

Surfing today evokes many things: thundering waves, warm beaches, bikinis and lifeguards, and carefree pleasure. But is the story of surfing really as simple as popular culture suggests? In this first international political history of the sport, Scott Laderman shows that while wave riding is indeed capable of stimulating tremendous pleasure, its globalization went hand in hand with the blood and repression of the long twentieth century. Emerging as an imperial instrument in post-annexation Hawaii, spawning a form of tourism that conquered the littoral Third World, tracing the struggle against South African apartheid, and employed as a diplomatic weapon in America's Cold War arsenal, the saga of modern surfing is only partially captured by Gidget, the Beach Boys, and the film Blue Crush. From nineteenth-century American empire-building in the Pacific to the low-wage labor of the surf industry today, Laderman argues that surfing in fact closely mirrored American foreign relations. Yet despite its less-than-golden past, the sport continues to captivate people worldwide. Whether in El Salvador or Indonesia or points between, the modern history of this cherished pastime is hardly an uncomplicated story of beachside bliss. Sometimes messy, occasionally contentious, but never dull, surfing offers us a whole new way of viewing our globalized world.

This book looks at the 1990s, years of intense economic experimentation, when buzz words such as "network society," "the experience economy," "creative cities," and "glocalization" were everywhere. A fascinating perspective on "The New Economy" emerges as the authors explore the worlds of cool hunters, biotech brokers, career coaches, software entrepreneurs and event managers and tackle such questions as: how is magic used in the quest for newness and change; what happens when cultural techniques such as branding and styling colonize new arenas; what turns out to be just a flash-in-the-pan and what has a lasting impact? This book is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand how economies operate in periods of rapid transformation.
