Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator Audiobook

Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator

Author: Ryan Holiday Narrator: Ryan Holiday Release Date: August 2019

You've seen it all before. A malicious online rumor costs a company millions. A political sideshow derails the national news cycle and destroys a candidate. Some product or celebrity zooms from total obscurity to viral sensation. What you don't know is that someone is responsible for all this. Usually, someone like me. I'm a media manipulator. In a world where blogs control and distort the news, my job is to control blogs-as much as any one person can. In today's culture... 1) Blogs like Gawker, Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post drive the media agenda. 2) Bloggers are slaves to money, technology, and deadlines. 3) Manipulators wield these levers to shape everything you read, see and watch-online and off. Why am I giving away these secrets? Because I'm tired of a world where blogs take indirect bribes, marketers help write the news, reckless journalists spread lies, and no one is accountable for any of it. I'm pulling back the curtain because I don't want anyone else to get blindsided. I'm going to explain exactly how the media really works. What you choose to do with this information is up to you.

Turing's Cathedral Audiobook

Turing's Cathedral

Author: George Dyson Narrator: Arthur Morey Release Date: March 2012

'It is possible to invent a single machine which can be used to compute any computable sequence,' twenty-four-year-old Alan Turing announced in 1936. In Turing's Cathedral, George Dyson focuses on a small group of men and women, led by John von Neumann at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, who built one of the first computers to realize Alan Turing's vision of a Universal Machine. Their work would break the distinction between numbers that mean things and numbers that do things'and our universe would never be the same. Using five kilobytes of memory (the amount allocated to displaying the cursor on a computer desktop of today), they achieved unprecedented success in both weather prediction and nuclear weapons design, while tackling, in their spare time, problems ranging from the evolution of viruses to the evolution of stars. Dyson's account, both historic and prophetic, sheds important new light on how the digital universe exploded in the aftermath of World War II. The proliferation of both codes and machines was paralleled by two historic developments: the decoding of self-replicating sequences in biology and the invention of the hydrogen bomb. It's no coincidence that the most destructive and the most constructive of human inventions appeared at exactly the same time. How did code take over the world? In retracing how Alan Turing's one-dimensional model became John von Neumann's two-dimensional implementation, Turing's Cathedral offers a series of provocative suggestions as to where the digital universe, now fully three-dimensional, may be heading next.

Twitter: A Biography Audiobook

Twitter: A Biography

Author: Jean Burgess, Nancy K. Baym Narrator: Rachel Perry Release Date: June 2020

The sometimes surprising, often humorous story of the forces that came together to shape the central role Twitter now plays in contemporary politics and culture Is Twitter a place for sociability and conversation, a platform for public broadcasting, or a network for discussion? Digital platforms have become influential in every sphere of communication, from the intimate and everyday to the public, professional, and political. Since the scrappy startup days of social media in the mid-2000s, not only has the worldwide importance of platforms grown exponentially, but also their cultures have shifted dramatically, in a variety of directions. These changes have brought new opportunities for progressive communities to thrive online, as well as widespread problems with commercial exploitation, disinformation, and hate speech. Twitter's growth over the past decade, like that of much social media, has far surpassed its creators' vision. Twitter charts this trajectory in the format of a platform biography: a new, streamlined approach to understanding how platforms change over time. Through the often surprising, fast-moving story of Twitter, it illuminates the multiple forces-from politics and business to digital ideologies-that came together to shape the evolution of this revolutionary platform.

Uberland: How Algorithms Are Rewriting the Rules of Work Audiobook

Uberland: How Algorithms Are Rewriting the Rules of Work

Author: Alex Rosenblat Narrator: Emily Beresford Release Date: October 2018

Silicon Valley technology is transforming the way we work, and Uber is leading the charge. An American startup that promised to deliver entrepreneurship for the masses through its technology, Uber instead built a new template for employment using algorithms and internet platforms. Upending our understanding of work in the digital age, Uberland paints a future where any of us might be managed by a faceless boss. The neutral language of technology masks the powerful influence algorithms have across the New Economy. Uberland chronicles the stories of drivers in more than twenty-five cities in the United States and Canada over four years, shedding light on their working conditions and providing a window into how they feel behind the wheel. The book also explores Uber's outsized influence around the world: the billion-dollar company is now influencing everything from debates about sexual harassment and transportation regulations to racial equality campaigns and labor rights initiatives. Based on award-winning technology ethnographer Alex Rosenblat's firsthand experience of riding over 5,000 miles with Uber drivers, daily visits to online forums, and face-to-face discussions with senior Uber employees, Uberland goes beyond the headlines to reveal the complicated politics of popular technologies that are manipulating both workers and consumers.

Virtually Human Audiobook

Virtually Human

Author: Martine Rothblatt Narrator: Jeff Cummings, Laural Merlington Release Date: September 2014

Every day, social media is automatically uploading our thoughts, memories, preferences, beliefs, and history to a virtual existence, essentially creating a “mindfile” of users. From this mindfile, thousands of software engineers across the globe are working on “mindware” to create personalities and humanlike consciousness in computer software—or cyberconsciousness. In the next decade or two, these efforts will result in the first digital copies of our identities, which will be our “mindclones.” As we communicate with our own mindclones, and as they and we interact with mindclones of other people, even those whose bodies have died, these cyberconscious beings will become part of the fabric of our daily lives and routines. In Virtually Human, author Martine Rothblatt shares her insights into how cyberconsciousness will manifest in our lives and what we need to consider when a new, high-tech population of mindclones awakens to the rights, privileges, and obligations humans take for granted. With her passion, commitment, and continued financial investment in this emerging technology, she is poised to be a leader in the paradigm shift already under way. Virtually Human conveys in clear, positive language a profound understanding of how close we are to achieving a full simulation of the human brain via software and computer technology. It raises numerous ethical and moral questions we absolutely need to address now, before the technology becomes commercially viable and accessible to all of us. Rothblatt launches an urgent investigation into what we will all face over the coming decades as our relationship with our virtual selves evolves and deepens. She gives us the philosophical and technological tools to understand the far-reaching implications of artificial intelligence. Martine Rothblatt has been at the forefront of AI research and is a clearheaded—and optimistic—thinker when it comes to understanding the ethical concerns that will play a significant role as we move toward living side by side with our mindclones. Virtually Human will be the essential companion audiobook to the future of mankind.
