The Future , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 216min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In this volume of the MIT Press's Essential Knowledge series, Nick Montfort argues that the future is something to be made, not predicted. Montfort offers what he considers essential knowledge about the future, as seen in the work of writers, artists, inventors, and designers (mainly in Western culture) who developed and described the core components of the futures they envisioned. Montfort's approach is not that of futurology or scenario planning; instead, he reports on the work of making the future - the thinkers who devoted themselves to writing pages in the unwritten book. Douglas Engelbart, Alan Kay, and Ted Nelson didn't predict the future of computing, for instance. They were three of the people who made it. Montfort focuses on how the development of technologies - with an emphasis on digital technologies - has been bound up with ideas about the future. Listeners learn about kitchens of the future and the vision behind them; literary utopias, from Plato's Republic to Edward Bellamy's Looking Backward and Charlotte Perkins Gilman's Herland; the Futurama exhibit at the 1939 New York World's Fair; and what led up to Tim Berners-Lee's invention of the World Wide Web. 1.

Password sniffing, spoofing, buffer overflows, and denial of service: these are only a few of the attacks on today's computer systems and networks. At the root of this epidemic is poorly written, poorly tested, and insecure code that puts everyone at risk. Clearly, today's developers need help figuring out how to write code that attackers won't be able to exploit. But writing such code is surprisingly difficult.Secure Programming Cookbook for C and C++ is an important new resource for developers serious about writing secure code. It contains a wealth of solutions to problems faced by those who care about the security of their applications. It covers a wide range of topics, including safe initialization, access control, input validation, symmetric and public key cryptography, cryptographic hashes and MACs, authentication and key exchange, PKI, random numbers, and anti-tampering. The rich set of code samples provided in the book's more than 200 recipes will help programmers secure the C and C++ programs they write for both Unix (including Linux) and Windows environments. Readers will learn:How to avoid common programming errors, such as buffer overflows, race conditions, and format string problemsHow to properly SSL-enable applicationsHow to create secure channels for client-server communication without SSLHow to integrate Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) into applicationsBest practices for using cryptography properlyTechniques and strategies for properly validating input to programsHow to launch programs securelyHow to use file access mechanisms properlyTechniques for protecting applications from reverse engineeringThe book's web site supplements the book by providing a place to post new recipes, including those written in additional languages like Perl, Java, and Python. Monthly prizes will reward the best recipes submitted by readers.Secure Programming Cookbook for C and C++ is destined to become an essential part of any developer's library, a code companion developers will turn to again and again as they seek to protect their systems from attackers and reduce the risks they face in today's dangerous world.

A clean, uncluttered page design uses color and type clearly to distinguish parts of the book and elements of the pages. Annotations on both visual and verbal examples connect principles and illustrations. Dictionary-style headers in the index make it easy to find entries, and helpful endpapers offer several paths to the book’s content. NEW! Streamlined explanations and new explanatory headings throughout make key information easier to find. Academic Writing NEW! A greatly expanded overview of common academic genres in the chapter on academic writing (now at the start of Part 2), such as responses, critical analyses, arguments, informative and personal writing, and research papers and reports, highlights key features of each genre and points students to examples in the handbook. NEW! A summary box titled “The writing situation” with each of the sample papers gives an overview of the situation to which the student responded–subject, purpose, audience, genre, and use of sources–thus connecting concepts with actual writing. NEW! Eighteen examples of academic writing in varied genres appear throughout the handbook, among them a new critical analysis of an advertisement and a new social-science research report documented in APA style. Synthesis receives special emphasis wherever students might need help balancing their own and others’ views, such as in responding to texts and visuals. NEW! The expanded chapter on critical reading and writing includes two full-length opinion pieces as exercises in critical reading, a new advertisement with a student’s analysis, a revised discussion of writing critically about texts and visuals, and a new critical analysis paper. Parts 9 and 10 give students a solid foundation in research writing and writing in the disciplines (literature, other humanities, social sciences, natural and applied sciences), along with extensive coverage of documentation in MLA, Chicago, APA, and CSE styles. NEW! Key material on academic integrity in Chapter 6 on academic writing and Chapter 44 on plagiarism discusses developing one’s own perspective on a topic, using and managing sources, and avoiding plagiarism. Other chapters throughout the handbook reinforce these important topics. Research Writing and Documentation To help students develop their own perspectives on their research subjects, the text advises asking questions, entering into dialog with sources, and presenting multiple views fairly and responsibly. Extensive attention to research methods supports students in the early stages of research. The discussion of searching for and evaluating sources–library, Web, and social media–helps students to refine search terms and to distinguish between reliable and unreliable sources. Case studies show the application of critical criteria to sample articles, Web documents, and a blog. NEW! A streamlined discussion of gathering information from sources stresses keeping accurate records of source material and marking borrowed words.

A chapter on documenting sources explains key features of source documentation, defines the relationship between in-text citations and a bibliography, and presents pros and cons of bibliography software. NEW! Updated, annotated samples of key source types illustrate MLA and APA documentation, showing students how to find the bibliographical information needed to cite each type and highlighting the similarities and differences between print and database sources. NEW! Reorganized chapters for all four styles group sources by type, thus simplifying the process of finding appropriate models and clarifying differences among print, database, Web, and other sources. NEW! A succinct guide accompanies the index to the models in each style to help students match their sources with appropriate citation formats. NEW! The chapter on CSE documentation reflects the new eighth edition of Scientific Style and Format: The CSE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers. NEW! A complete social-science research report shows APA style in the context of student writing. Two research papers illustrate MLA style and include a paper-in-progress, following a student through the research process and culminating in an annotated essay on green consumerism. The extensive chapter on avoiding plagiarism discusses deliberate and careless plagiarism, shows examples of plagiarized and revised sentences, and gives updated advice about avoiding plagiarism with online sources. Writing As a Process NEW! A reorganized presentation of drafting, revising, and editing distinguishes revising more clearly as a step separate from editing. NEW! An expanded discussion of thesis covers using the thesis statement to preview organization. NEW! New, relevant examples in Chapter 4 on paragraphs illustrate important concepts of coherence, organization, and development. NEW! A revised and streamlined chapter on presenting writing focuses on essential information related to document design, visuals and other media, writing for online environments, and oral presentations. NEW! A revised discussion of preparing a writing portfolio gives an overview of common formats and requirements. Usage, Grammar, and Punctuation NEW! Revised explanations of grammar concepts and rules throughout simplify the presentation and emphasize key material. NEW! Two common trouble spots—sentence fragments and passive voice—are discussed in greater detail and illustrated with new and more examples. NEW! Dozens of new and revised examples and exercises clarify and test important concepts. NEW! Added examples in Part 8 on effective words show common shortcuts of texting and other electronic communication and how to revise them for academic writing. Visual and Media Literacy Thorough discussions of critically reading advertisements, graphs, and other visuals appear in Chapter 7 on critical reading, Chapter 8 on reading arguments, and Chapter 43 on working with sources.
