Dass Cyberverbrechen und Cyberwar keine bloß virtuellen Gefahren mehr sind, sickert erst allmählich ins öffentliche und politische Bewusstsein. Als der Computerwurm »Conficker« im November 2008 auf die Welt losgelassen wurde, infizierte er binnen weniger Wochen Millionen von Computern weltweit. War er in ein System eingedrungen, konnte er dieses mit anderen verbinden und so ein Netzwerk bilden, das sich von außen kontrollieren ließ. Ein solch großes Botnetz ist theoretisch in der Lage, sämtliche Computernetzwerke zu überwältigen, ohne die heute unsere Banken, Telefone, Kraftwerke oder Flughäfen, ja sogar das Internet selbst kollabieren würden - mit unabsehbaren Folgen. War »Conficker« nur das Werkzeug von Cyberkriminellen oder gar eine reale militärische Waffe mit so nie dagewesenem Zerstörungspotenzial? Mark Bowden erzählt, wie in einem dramatischen Wettlauf Computerexperten alles daransetzen, den brandgefährlichen Wurm auszuschalten. Packend beschreibt er einen nach wie vor völlig unterschätzten Krieg, der buchstäblich unter unseren Fingerspitzen auf der Tastatur ausgefochten wird.

Worm Work

Recasting Romanticism

Author: Janelle A. Schwartz

Publisher: U of Minnesota Press

ISBN: 0816673217

Category: Literary Criticism

Worms. Natural history is riddled with them. Literature is crawling with them. From antiquity to today, the ubiquitous and multiform worm provokes an immediate discomfort and unconscious distancing: it remains us against them in anthropocentric anxiety. So there is always something muddled, or dirty, or even offensive when talking about worms. Rehabilitating the lowly worm into a powerful aesthetic trope, Janelle A. Schwartz proposes a new framework for understanding such a strangely animate nature. Worms, she declares, are the very matter with which the Romantics rethought the relationship between a material world in constant flux and the human mind working to understand it. Worm Work studies the lesser-known natural historical records of Abraham Trembley and his contemporaries and the familiar works of Erasmus Darwin, Charles Darwin, William Blake, Mary Shelley, and John Keats, to expose the worm as an organism that is not only reviled as a taxonomic terror but revered as a sign of great order in nature as well as narrative. This book traces a pattern of cultural production, a vermiculture that is as transformative of matter as it is of mind. It distinguishes decay or division as positive processes in Romantic era writings, compounded by generation or renewal and used to represent the biocentric, complex structuring of organicism. Offering the worm as an archetypal figure through which to recast the evolution of a literary order alongside questions of taxonomy from 1740 to 1820 and on, Schwartz unearths Romanticism as a rich humus of natural historical investigation and literary creation.
