This book tackles online social networks by navigating these systems from the birth to the death of their digital presence. Navigating the social within the digital can be a contentious undertaking, as social networks confuse the boundary between offline and online relationships. These systems work to bring people together in an online environment, yet participation can dislocate users from other relationships and deviant ‘online’ behaviour can create ‘offline’ issues. The author begins by examining the creation of a digital presence in online networks popularized by websites such as Facebook and MySpace. The book explores how the digital presence influences how social, cultural and professional relationships are discovered, forged, maintained and broken, and journeys through the popular criticisms of social networking such as employee time-wasting, bullying, stalking, the alleged links between social networks and suicide and the decline of a user’s public image. Social networks are often treated as morally ambiguous spaces, which highlights a dissonance between digital and social literacies. This discord is approached through an exploration of the everyday undercurrents present in social networks. The discussion of the digital presence ends by addressing the intricacies of becoming ‘digitally dead’, which explores how a user removes their identity, with finality, from social networks and the entire web. Identifies the undercurrents present in social networks and explores how these influence everyday life Provides insight into how the digital presence insidiously encroaches on offline aspects of a user’s life Examines the idea of becoming ‘digitally dead’ by discussing the often taboo subject of virtual and non-virtual suicide in the context of social networks

What is life? For generations, scientists have struggled to make sense of this fundamental question, for life really does look like magic: even a humble bacterium accomplishes things so dazzling that no human engineer can match it. Huge advances in molecular biology over the past few decades have served only to deepen the mystery. In this penetrating and wide-ranging book, world-renowned physicist and science communicator Paul Davies searches for answers in a field so new and fast-moving that it lacks a name; it is a domain where biology, computing, logic, chemistry, quantum physics, and nanotechnology intersect. At the heart of these diverse fields, Davies explains, is the concept of information: a quantity which has the power to unify biology with physics, transform technology and medicine, and force us to fundamentally reconsider what it means to be alive—even illuminating the age-old question of whether we are alone in the universe. From life’s murky origins to the microscopic engines that run the cells of our bodies, The Demon in the Machine journeys across an astounding landscape of cutting-edge science. Weaving together cancer and consciousness, two-headed worms and bird navigation, Davies reveals how biological organisms garner and process information to conjure order out of chaos, opening a window onto the secret of life itself.

Hardbound. The papers of this seventh conference reflect the gradual shift from the original emphasis on the uses of language design to describe hardware, toward more formal techniques for specification and verification.This volume highlights the following topics: - Languages to specify and describe hardware design, to reason about timing and functional behaviour, and to support modelling and performance evaluation - Synthesis and verification of systems as means of support for the design process, and as a guarantee of design consistency and functional correctness - Tool Integration aspects such as the representation of design information, and the putting together of tools within a coherent design environment.

This introductory level text provides the basics of computer processors for courses in introduction to microprocessors or microprocessor applications. Its orientation is not so much towards a description how microprocessors themselves are designed, but rather how microprocessors can be used to do something useful. Thus, it is aimed not at the electrical major who needs a strong understanding of the internal workings of microprocesor chips, but at the electrical or non-electrical electrical major who needs adequate background to intelligently use, program, modify, and maintain microprocessor systems or to manage those people who do so. The coverage focuses on two popular microprocessor chips, the MC6809 and the MC68000.
