The Antisocial Network Audiobook

The Antisocial Network

Author: Ben Mezrich Narrator: Fajer Al-Kaisi Release Date: September 2021

This is definitive take on the wildest story of the year— the David-vs.-Goliath GameStop short squeeze, a tale of fortunes won and lost overnight that may end up changing Wall Street forever. Bestselling author Ben Mezrich offers a gripping, beat-by-beat account of how a loosely affiliate group of private investors and internet trolls took down one of the biggest hedge funds on Wall Street, firing the first shot in a revolution that threatens to upend the financial establishment. It started on a subreddit forum called WallStreetBets – a meme-filled, freewheeling place where a disparate group of investors shared their shoot-the-moon investment tips, laughed about big losses, and posted diamond hand emojis. Until some members noticed an opportunity in Game Stop – a flailing bricks and mortar video-game retailer – and somehow rode a rocket ship to tens of millions of dollars in earnings overnight, simultaneously triggering unfathomable losses for one of the most respected funds on the street. In thrilling, pulse-pounding prose, THE ANTISOCIAL NETWORK offers a fascinating, never-before-seen glimpse at the outsize personalities, dizzying swings, corporate drama, and underestimated American heroes and heroines who captivated the world during one of the most volatile weeks in financial history. It’s the amazing story of what just happened—and where we go from here.

Fail Fast, Learn Faster: Lessons in Data-Driven Leadership in an Age of Disruption, Big Data, and AI Audiobook

Fail Fast, Learn Faster: Lessons in Data-Driven Leadership in an Age of Disruption, Big Data, and AI

Author: Randy Bean Narrator: Stephen Bowlby Release Date: September 2021

In Fail Fast, Learn Faster: Lessons in Data-Driven Leadership in an Age of Disruption, Big Data, and AI, Fortune 1000 strategic advisor, noted author, and distinguished thought leader Randy Bean tells the story of the rise of Big Data and its business impact-its disruptive power, the cultural challenges to becoming data-driven, the importance of data ethics, and the future of data-driven AI. The book looks at the impact of Big Data during a period of explosive information growth, technology advancement, emergence of the Internet and social media, and challenges to accepted notions of data, science, and facts, and asks what it means to become 'data-driven.' Fail Fast, Learn Faster includes discussions of: the emergence of Big Data and why organizations must become data-driven to survive; why becoming data-driven forces companies to 'think different' about their business; the state of data in the corporate world today, and the principal challenges; why companies must develop a true 'data culture' if they expect to change; examples of companies that are demonstrating data-driven leadership and what we can learn from them; why companies must learn to 'fail fast and learn faster' to compete in the years ahead; and how the chief data officer has been established as a new corporate profession.

DeFi and the Future of Finance Audiobook

DeFi and the Future of Finance

Author: Ashwin Ramachandran, Campbell R. Harvey, Joey Santoro Narrator: David De Vries Release Date: September 2021

During the Global Financial Crisis in 2008, our financial infrastructure failed. Govern­ments bailed out the very institutions that let the economy down. This episode spurred a serious rethink of our financial system. In DeFi and the Future of Finance, Campbell R. Harvey, Ashwin Ramachandran, and Joey Santoro introduce the new world of Decen­tralized Finance. The book argues that the current financial landscape is ripe for dis­ruption and we are seeing, in real time, the reinvention of finance. The authors provide listeners with a clear assessment of the problems with the current financial system and how DeFi solves many of its issues. The essence of DeFi is that we interact with peers-there is no brick and mortar and all of the associated costs. Savings and lending are reinvented. Trading takes place with algorithms far re­moved from traditional brokerages. The book conducts a deep dive on some of the most innovative protocols such as Uniswap and Compound. Many of the companies featured in the book you might not have heard of-however, you will in the future.

All the News That's Fit to Click: How Metrics Are Transforming the Work of Journalists Audiobook

All the News That's Fit to Click: How Metrics Are Transforming the Work of Journalists

Author: Caitlin Petre Narrator: Eva Wilhelm Release Date: September 2021

Journalists today are inundated with data about which stories attract the most clicks, likes, comments, and shares. These metrics influence what stories are written, how news is promoted, and even which journalists get hired and fired. Do metrics make journalists more accountable to the public? Or are these data tools the contemporary equivalent of a stopwatch wielded by a factory boss, worsening newsroom working conditions and journalism quality? Caitlin Petre takes listeners behind the scenes at the New York Times, Gawker, and the prominent news analytics company Chartbeat to explore how performance metrics are transforming the work of journalism. Petre describes how digital metrics are a powerful but insidious new form of managerial surveillance and discipline. Real-time analytics tools are designed to win the trust and loyalty of wary journalists by mimicking key features of addictive games, including immersive displays, instant feedback, and constantly updated 'scores' and rankings. Many journalists get hooked on metrics and pressure themselves to work ever harder. Yet this is not a simple story of managerial domination. Contrary to the typical perception of metrics as inevitably disempowering, Petre shows how journalists leverage metrics to their advantage, using them to advocate for their professional worth and autonomy.

AI 2041: Ten Visions for Our Future Audiobook

AI 2041: Ten Visions for Our Future

Brought to you by Penguin. In this ground-breaking blend of imaginative storytelling and scientific forecasting, a pioneering AI expert and a leading writer of speculative fiction join forces to answer an imperative question: How will artificial intelligence change our world within twenty years? AI will be the defining development of the twenty-first century. Within two decades, aspects of daily human life will be unrecognizable. AI will generate unprecedented wealth, revolutionize medicine and education through human-machine symbiosis, and create brand new forms of communication and entertainment. In liberating us from routine work, however, AI will also challenge the organizing principles of our economic and social order. Meanwhile, AI will bring new risks in the form of autonomous weapons and smart technology that inherits human bias. AI is at a tipping point, and people need to wake up-both to AI's radiant pathways and its existential perils for life as we know it. In this provocative, utterly original work of 'scientific fiction,' Kai-Fu Lee, the former president of Google China and bestselling author of AI Superpowers, joins forces with celebrated novelist Chen Qiufan to imagine our world in 2041 and how it will be shaped by AI. In ten gripping short stories, set twenty years in the future, they introduce readers to an array of eye-opening 2041 settings: In San Francisco, a new industry, 'job reallocation,' arises to serve displaced workers In Tokyo, a music fan is swept up in an immersive form of celebrity worship In Mumbai, a teenage girl rebels when AI gets in the way of romance In Seoul, virtual teachers offer orphaned twins new ways to learn and connect In Munich, a rogue quantum computer scientist's revenge plot imperils the world By gazing toward a not-so-distant horizon, AI 2041 offers urgent insights into our collective future-while reminding readers that, ultimately, humankind remains the author of its destiny. © Chen Qiufan 2021 (P) Penguin Audio 2021

Author: Brian A. Primack Narrator: Eric Jason Martin Release Date: September 2021

An empowering, forward-thinking solution for creating intentional and healthy social media habits from an expert on media, technology and health. Internationally acclaimed behavioral scientist and social media expert Brian Primack, MD, PhD, believes we do not need to swear off social media, delete all our online accounts, or give up our phones to live healthier, happier lives. In You Are What You Click, he offers a new approach to digital wellness, and a realist's perspective on how what we consume online affects our well-being. In response, he presents a 'social media pyramid' that personalizes our tech diet so we can enjoy a fruitful, balanced relationship with social media. While many of us turn to social media looking for a sense of connection and comfort, the data show that it may paradoxically leave us feeling more alone and depressed. Drawing on over twenty years of original research, Dr. Primack explains the fascinating nuances of our relationship with social media, its impact on our mental health, and the dangers of social media using us instead of the other way around. He empowers us to take back control with a simple method: being more selective, positive, and creative with our lives online. Dr. Primack introduces surprising strategies you can use right away to fine-tune your online experience and discover your definition of digital balance. Through short, actionable chapters, you'll learn how to: • Tailor your social media use to your personality. • Select positive relationships over toxic ones. • Overcome comparison syndrome and the fear of missing out. • Fill your feed with meaningful, humorous, and uplifting content. • Optimize your news intake and resist doomscrolling. • Improve your sleep, create 'tech holidays,' and more. With innovative strategies for managing technology, you'll transform your relationship with tech and discover how to make social media work for you. You Are What You Click offers a science-backed approach from a credentialed doctor: Dr. Brian Primack has an MD and a PhD in Education and Behavioral Science. Primack is the go-to expert on this topic. His work on the intersection of media and health has been cited nearly 6,000 times in peer-reviewed scholarly literature, and he has been featured in major media outlets across the world. FOR WELLNESS READERS, PARENTS, AND ANYONE WHO USES SOCIAL MEDIA: Dropping off the digital map or deleting all our social media accounts isn't the only option-and often isn't something we feel ready to do. Rather than digital abstinence, with Primack's 3-step plan, tech lovers will be able to understand how to regulate their online social platforms in healthier ways. A BALANCED PERSPECTIVE ON TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIAL MEDIA IN A POSITIVE LIGHT: Almost every book in this genre portrays technology in a negative or even scary way. With this book, readers will learn how to adjust and balance their presence online with a personalized plan they can use across all platforms, no matter what new social media app goes public next. Primack offers an empowering solution that is forward-thinking, and will continue to be relevant as technology becomes more immersed into our lives. QUICK, PRACTICAL ADVICE:You Are What You Click is broken into short, actionable chapters that allow readers to understand the research, take action, and see results-perfect for short attention spans whittled down by Facebook and Instagram stories, Twitter, Snapchat, and TikTok! FOR FANS OF PERSONALITY BOOKS: Fans of books like The Road Back to You: An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery and The Four Tendencies: The Indispensable Personality Profiles that Reveal How to Make Your Life Better will love the personality quiz and personalized solutions Primack offers for being selective, creative, and healthy with social media use.

A Vulnerable System: The History of Information Security in the Computer Age Audiobook

A Vulnerable System: The History of Information Security in the Computer Age

Author: Andrew J. Stewart Narrator: Rick Adamson Release Date: September 2021

Andrew J. Stewart convincingly shows that emergency software patches and new security products cannot provide the solution to threats such as computer hacking, viruses, software vulnerabilities, and electronic spying. Profound underlying structural problems must first be understood, confronted, and then addressed. A Vulnerable System delivers a long view of the history of information security, beginning with the creation of the first digital computers during the Cold War. From the key institutions of the so-called military industrial complex in the 1950s to Silicon Valley start-ups in the 2020s, the relentless pursuit of new technologies has come at great cost. The absence of knowledge regarding the history of information security has caused the lessons of the past to be forsaken for the novelty of the present, and has led us to be collectively unable to meet the needs of the current day. From the very beginning of the information age, claims of secure systems have been crushed by practical reality. The myriad risks to technology, Stewart reveals, cannot be addressed without first understanding how we arrived at this moment. A Vulnerable System is an enlightening and sobering history of a topic that affects crucial aspects of our lives.

Manipulados: La batalla de Facebook por la dominación mundial Audiobook

Manipulados: La batalla de Facebook por la dominación mundial

Author: Cecilia Kang, Sheera Frenkel Narrator: Kerygma Flores Release Date: September 2021

EL LIBRO QUE FACEBOOK NO QUIERE QUE LEAS. Sheera Frenkel y Cecilia Kang, galardonadas periodistas del New York Times, nos ofrecen el impactante relato de la caída en desgracia del gigante de Silicon Valley. «El golpe definitivo.» The New York Times Facebook lleva varios años en el ojo del huracán. Desde que estalló el escándalo de Cambridge Analytica y la campaña de desinformación rusa intenta esquivar una avalancha de controversias y demandas relacionadas con su estrategia empresarial. Mientras el gigante tecnológico presume de crear un mundo interconectado en el que poder expresarse con libertad, viola la privacidad de sus usuarios y propaga una epidemia de desinformación tóxica y dañina. A partir de una minuciosa investigación y tras haber entrevistado a legisladores, inversores, académicos, ejecutivos y empleados del gigante de Silicon Valley, Sheera Frenkel y Cecilia Kang –dos prestigiosas periodistas de The New York Times– se adentran en los entresijos de una empresa rodeada siempre de un gran secretismo y cuya cultura exige una lealtad ciega, y revelan las operaciones ocultas y las luchas de poder de la red social por excelencia. Mucha gente considera que Facebook es una compañía que ha perdido el rumbo, pero esta explosiva investigación demuestra cómo los pasos en falso de los últimos años no son una anomalía, sino una consecuencia inevitable. Mark Zuckerberg y Sheryl Sandberg emprendieron juntos la construcción metódica y deliberada de un modelo de negocio despiadado basado en el crecimiento ilimitado. Cegados por su propia ambición y arrogancia, esta no es la clásica historia de Frankenstein, el monstruo que se liberó de su creador, sino de dos personas que decidieron mantenerse al margen mientras su imperio sirve de altavoz a criminales y regímenes corruptos en todo el mundo con consecuencias devastadoras. Sería muy fácil reducir la historia de Facebook a la de un algoritmo fallido. La verdad es mucho más compleja y este libro es la prueba definitiva.
