Kirkus' Best Fiction of 2017From New York Times bestselling author Cory Doctorow, an epic tale of revolution, love, post-scarcity, and the end of death."Walkaway is now the best contemporary example I know of, its utopia glimpsed after fascinatingly-extrapolated revolutionary struggle." -William GibsonHubert Vernon Rudolph Clayton Irving Wilson Alva Anton Jeff Harley Timothy Curtis Cleveland Cecil Ollie Edmund Eli Wiley Marvin Ellis Espinoza-known to his friends as Hubert, Etc-was too old to be at that Communist party. But after watching the breakdown of modern society, he really has no where left to be-except amongst the dregs of disaffected youth who party all night and heap scorn on the sheep they see on the morning commute. After falling in with Natalie, an ultra-rich heiress trying to escape the clutches of her repressive father, the two decide to give up fully on formal society-and walk away. After all, now that anyone can design and print the basic necessities of life-food, clothing, shelter-from a computer, there seems to be little reason to toil within the system. It's still a dangerous world out there, the empty lands wrecked by climate change, dead cities hollowed out by industrial flight, shadows hiding predators animal and human alike. Still, when the initial pioneer walkaways flourish, more people join them. Then the walkaways discover the one thing the ultra-rich have never been able to buy: how to beat death. Now it's war - a war that will turn the world upside down. Fascinating, moving, and darkly humorous, Walkaway is a multi-generation SF thriller about the wrenching changes of the next hundred years...and the very human people who will live their consequences.At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

A tiny population of human beings fled to distant Safehold.

Securing Digital Video

Content protection and digital rights management (DRM) are fields that receive a lot of attention: content owners require systems that protect and maximize their revenues, consumers want backwards compatibility, while they fear that content owners will spy on their viewing habits, and academics are afraid that DRM may be a barrier to knowledge sharing. DRM technologies have a poor reputation and are not yet trusted.This book describes the key aspects of content protection and DRM systems, the objective being to demystify the technology and techniques. In the first part of the book, the author builds the foundations, with sections that cover the rationale for protecting digital video content, video piracy, current toolboxes that employ cryptography, watermarking, tamper resistance, and rights expression languages, different ways to model video content protection, and DRM. In the second part, he describes the main existing deployed solutions, including video ecosystems, how video is protected in broadcasting, descriptions of DRM systems, such as Microsoft's DRM and Apple's FairPlay, techniques for protecting prerecorded content distributed using DVDs or Blu-ray, and future methods used to protect content within the home network. The final part of the book looks towards future research topics, and the key problem of interoperability.While the book focuses on protecting video content, the DRM principles and technologies described are also used to protect many other types of content, such as ebooks, documents and games. The book will be of value to industrial researchers and engineers developing related technologies, academics and students in information security, cryptography and media systems, and engaged consumers.

The Lost Constitution
7,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Rare-book expert Peter Fallon and his girlfriend, Evangeline, the main characters from Back Bay and Harvard Yard, are back for another treasure hunt through time. They have learned of an early, annotated draft of the Constitution, stolen and smuggled out of Philadelphia. The draft's marginal notes spell out, in shocking detail, the Founders' unequivocal intentions---the unmistakable meaning of the Bill of Rights. Peddled and purloined, trafficked and concealed for over two centuries, the lost Constitution could forever change America's history---and its future. Moreover, Congress is already at war, fighting tooth and claw over the eternally contentious Bill of Rights. When word gets out of the lost draft's existence, it launches a frenzied search, as both sides of the partisan machine believe it will reinforce their arguments. While battling politicians from both sides of the debate, Peter and Evangeline must get to the document first, because they know that if the wrong people find it, they will burn it, stripping the nation of its constitutional moorings. The search takes Peter and Evangeline into the rich history of America and New England, from Shay's Rebellion to the birth of the American industrial revolution to the march of the legendary 20th Maine in the Civil War. Past and present play off one another as the search for the draft heats up. It finally boils over on the first night of the World Series, at that Mecca of New England, Boston's fabled Fenway Park, and the truth is finally revealed....

DRM, a Design Research Methodology
163,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The step-wise, hands-on approach of 'DRM' studies the ways in which design research can best be undertaken to address specific questions. This study gives rise, for the first time, to a generic and systematic design research methodology intended to improve the quality of design research-its academic credibility, industrial significance and societal contribution-by enabling more thorough, efficient and effective procedures. The authors provide a comprehensive list of types of design research linked to appropriate, reliable research methods and supported by illustrative examples throughout the text. Furthermore, 'DRM' affords an overview of supplementary research methods and points the way to their more detailed sources. The practical emphasis of the text is reinforced by a whole section of exemplary design research projects contributed by eminent design researchers and placed in the context of the proposed methodology to demonstrate the application of the variety of methods available in a structured fashion.
