[EAN: 9780307269935], [PU: Knopf], This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Praise for Tim Wus THE MASTER SWITCH An explosive history that makes it clear how the information business became what it is today. Important reading. -Chris Anderson, author of The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More and Free: How Todays Smartest Businesses Profit by Giving Something for Nothing ; editor of Wired Magazine Wus book is both a masterful media history and an outline for the future of the digital age. The Master Switch brilliantly describes the never-ending tension between open and closed media, as it has effected everything from the printing press to the web, and details ways society might be able to prevent the disastrous closing down of digital freedoms currently threatening the open internet. -Clay Shirky, author of Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organization and Cognitive Surplus: Creativity and Generosity in a Connected Age Every now and then a book changes the way we understand the world. The Master Switch is such an achievement; it is a rigorous, imaginative and enthralling history of the Twentieth Century struggle among utopian innovators, profit-maximizing monopolists, and their often-hapless regulators. Wu has convincingly reinterpreted our media past, and by doing so, he has illuminated the risks to open media and Internet-enabled innovation that confront us in the present. -Steve Coll, President, New American Foundation and Pulitzer Prize winning author of Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001 A masterpiece. -Lawrence Lessig, Director of the Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics and Professor of Law, Harvard University Ranging from the early days of Theodore Vails AT&T to the current battle between Google and Apple, Tim Wus work is a must read for those who want to know about the future of the Internet. The Master Switch is brilliant, with a distinctive voice that comes through on every page. -Josh Silverman, CEO, Skype A free and open Internet is not a given. Indeed, corporate interests are working feverishly to seize control of it. Drawing on history, The Master Switch shows how this could easily happen and why we are at risk of losing the freedom we now take for granted. A must-read for all Americans who want to remain the ones deciding what they can read, watch, and listen to. -Arianna Huffington Wu&artfully charts a single story in which economic power consistently trumps public good, with the Google of today being the latest master switch that channels communication&.Eye-opening reading, with implications for just about anyone who uses that utility, which means just about everyone. - Kirkus (starred review) [A] brilliant exploration of the oscillations of communications technologies between open and closed from the early days of telephone up through Hollywood and broadcast television up to the Internet era. -Michael Noer, Forbes Wus engaging narrative and remarkable historical detail make this a compelling and galvanizing cry for sanity&in the information age. - Publishers Weekly (starred review and pick of the week) Eye-opening business history&. Wu is an exemplary writer&able to draw readers into his stories with engaging details. - Library Journal [A]n essential look at the directions that personal computing could be headed depending on which policies and worldviews come to dominate control over the Internet. -David Siegfried, Booklist (starred review) [M]asterful&.fascinating&. a superstar in the telecommunications world&. Wu has a way of presenting complex and important concepts in a clear and understandable way&.eminently readable&. a wealth of&.fabulous anecdotes&.a warning that we ignore at our peril. -Art Brodsky, Huffington Post The Master Switch &.a brilliant explanation and history&. is as fascinating, wide-ranging, and, ultimately, inspiring book about co

The Master Switch: The Rise and Fall of Information Empires (Borzoi Books) - livre d'occasion

ISBN: 0307269930

ID: 5810325

In this age of an open Internet, it is easy to forget that every American information industry, beginning with the telephone, has eventually been taken captive by some ruthless monopoly or cartel. With all our media now traveling a single network, an unprecedented potential is building for centralized control over what Americans see and hear. Could history repeat itself with the next industrial consolidation? Could the Internet-the entire flow of American information-come to be ruled by one corporate leviathan in possession of 'the master switch'? That is the big question of Tim Wu's pathbreaking book.As Wu's sweeping history shows, each of the new media of the twentieth century-radio, telephone, television, and film-was born free and open. Each invited unrestricted use and enterprising experiment until some would-be mogul battled his way to total domination. Here are stories of an uncommon will to power, the power over information: Adolph Zukor, who took a technology once used as commonly as YouTube is today and made it the exclusive prerogative of a kingdom called Hollywood . . . NBC's founder, David Sarnoff, who, to save his broadcast empire from disruptive visionaries, bullied one inventor (of electronic television) into alcoholic despair and another (this one of FM radio, and his boyhood friend) into suicide . . . And foremost, Theodore Vail, founder of the Bell System, the greatest information empire of all time, and a capitalist whose faith in Soviet-style cent biography and history,business and finance,business and investing,business and management,business communication,communication and journalism,communication and media studies,communications,company profiles,computer science Computer Science, Knopf
