The Internet is Not the Answer

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Internet-Not-Answer-Andrew-Keen-ebo...
In this sharp and witty book, long-time Silicon Valley observer and author Andrew Keen argues that, on balance, the Internet has had a disastrous impact on all our lives. By tracing the history of the Internet, from its founding in the 1960s to the creation of the World Wide Web in 1989, through the waves of start-ups and the rise of the big data companies to the increasing attempts to monetize almost every human activity, Keen shows how the Web has had a deeply negative effect on our culture, economy and society. Informed by Keen's own research and interviews, as well as the work of other writers, reporters and academics, The Internet is Not the Answer is an urgent investigation into the tech world - from the threat to privacy posed by social media and online surveillance by government agencies, to the impact of the Internet on unemployment and economic inequality. Keen concludes by outlining the changes that he believes must be made, before it's too late. If we do nothing, he warns, this new technology and the companies that control it will continue to impoverish us all.

Internet Bride

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Internet-Bride-Bella-Grant-ebook/dp...
When you’re rich and can’t love a woman, you order a bride online. That’s what I did. Raymond: I can’t love. It’s that simple. I have no excuses. No woman can ever possess my heart, but I promised to have a wife and child. I’m great at keeping promises. Thank goodness for the power of the internet. One click and I have my list of prospects. I go for the stunning, red-haired, polished girl. I won’t love her, but at least she’ll be great arm-candy, and perhaps give me a couple beautiful children. Soon we meet, but there’s something off about her, something terribly off. Even though I know she’s the perfect fake bride for me, I can’t quite figure her out – my internet bride. Anna:When you’re a maid from a poor family and are offered a business deal to marry a rich man – you go for it. That’s what I did. I want love, real love, but I know that’s just fairy tales. Real love probably doesn’t exist. My real life is not so rosy – I’m a maid, and the closest I’d ever come to being a princess was in my dreams. Except I see an opportunity to become a bride to a rich man, an internet bride. I wasn’t sure how those worked, but I was ready to find out. A few lessons on etiquettes and I was ready to fake being a polished society woman. Except it was a lie. I was a poor virgin who had no clue how the real world functioned. I was about to find out – the hard way. INTERNET BRIDE is a full-length, happily-ever-after, no cliffhangers, romance filled with hot romantic scenes you probably shouldn't be reading!

The Internet of Money

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Internet-Money-Andreas-M-Antonopoul...
While many books explain the how of bitcoin, The Internet of Money delves into the why of bitcoin. Acclaimed information-security expert and author of Mastering Bitcoin, Andreas M. Antonopoulos examines and contextualizes the significance of bitcoin through a series of essays spanning the exhilarating maturation of this technology.Bitcoin, a technological breakthrough quietly introduced to the world in 2008, is transforming much more than finance. Bitcoin is disrupting antiquated industries to bring financial independence to billions worldwide. In this book, Andreas explains why bitcoin is a financial and technological evolution with potential far exceeding the label “digital currency.”Andreas goes beyond exploring the technical functioning of the bitcoin network by illuminating bitcoin’s philosophical, social, and historical implications. As the internet has essentially transformed how people around the world interact and has permanently impacted our lives in ways we never could have imagined, bitcoin -- the internet of money -- is fundamentally changing our approach to solving social, political, and economic problems through decentralized technology.

Industrial Internet

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Industrial-Internet-Jon-Bruner-eboo...
Consumer networks have revolutionized the way companies understand and reach their customers, making possible intricate measurement and accurate prediction at every step of every transaction. The same revolution is underway in our infrastructure, where new generations of sensor-laden power plants, cars and medical devices will generate vast quantities of data that could bring about improvements in quality, reliability and cost. Big machines will enter the modern era of big data, where they'll be subject to constant analysis and optimization.The promise of the industrial internet is that it will bring intelligence to industries that are capital-intensive and create broad value that all of the industrial internet's participants will share.This report examines the industrial internet across several industries. It describes both near-term efforts as well as the longer-term development that will emerge as software and machines further integrate.

The Shallows: How the internet is changing the way we think, read and remember

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Shallows-internet-changing-think-re...
In this ground-breaking and compelling book, Nicholas Carr argues that not since Gutenberg invented printing has humanity been exposed to such a mind-altering technology. The Shallows draws on the latest research to show that the Net is literally re-wiring our brains inducing only superficial understanding. As a consequence there are profound changes in the way we live and communicate, remember and socialise - even in our very conception of ourselves. By moving from the depths of thought to the shallows of distraction, the web, it seems, is actually fostering ignorance. The Shallows is not a manifesto for luddites, nor does it seek to turn back the clock. Rather it is a revelatory reminder of how far the Internet has become enmeshed in our daily existence and is affecting the way we think. This landmark book compels us all to look anew at our dependence on this all-pervasive technology.

I Hate the Internet: A novel

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hate-Internet-novel-Jarett-Kobek-eb...
In New York in the middle of the twentieth century, comic book companies figured out how to make millions from comics without paying their creators anything. In San Francisco at the start of the twenty-first century, tech companies figured out how to make millions from online abuse without paying its creators anything. In the 1990s, Adeline drew a successful comic book series that ended up making her kind-of famous. In 2013, Adeline aired some unfashionable opinions that made their way onto the Internet. The reaction of the Internet, being a tool for making millions in advertising revenue from online abuse, was predictable. The reaction of the Internet, being part of a culture that hates women, was to send Adeline messages like 'Drp slut ... hope u get gang rape.'Set in a San Francisco hollowed out by tech money, greed and rampant gentrification, I Hate the Internet is a savage indictment of the intolerable bullshit of unregulated capitalism and an uproarious, hilarious but above all furious satire of our Internet Age.
