Traditional critical editing, defined by the paper and print limitations of the book, is now considered by many to be inadequate for the expression and interpretation of complex works of literature. At the same time, digital developments are permitting us to extend the range of text objects we can reproduce and investigate critically - not just books, but newspapers, draft manuscripts and inscriptions on stone. Some exponents of the benefits of new information technologies argue that in future all editions should be produced in digital or online form. By contrast, others point to the fact that print, after more than five hundred years of development, continues to set the agenda for how we think about text, even in its non-print forms. This important book brings together leading textual critics, scholarly editors, technical specialists and publishers to discuss whether and how existing paradigms for developing and using critical editions are changing to reflect the increased commitment to and assumed significance of digital tools and methodologies.

"The charge of securing corporate America falls upon its businessleaders. This book, offered by Ernst & Young and written byMark Doll, Sajay Rai, and Jose Granado, is not only timely, butcomprehensive in outlook and broad in scope. It addresses many ofthe critical security issues facing corporate America today andshould be read by responsible senior management." --Former Mayor ofNew York, Rudolph W. Giuliani "To achieve the highest possible level of digital security, everymember of an organization's management must realize that digitalsecurity is 'baked in,' not 'painted on.'" --from Defending theDigital Frontier: A Security Agenda Like it or not, every company finds itself a pioneer in the digitalfrontier. And like all frontiers, this one involves exploration,potentially high returns . . . and high risks. Consider this: According to Computer Economics, the worldwideeconomic impact of such recent attacks as Nimda, Code Red(s), andSircam worms totaled $4.4 billion. The "Love Bug" virus in 2000inflicted an estimated $8.75 billion in damage worldwide. Thecombined impact of the Melissa and Explorer attacks was $2.12billion. Companies were hurt as much in terms of image and publicconfidence as they were financially. Protecting the "digitalfrontier" is perhaps the greatest challenge facing businessorganizations in this millennium. It is no longer a function of ITtechnologists; it is a risk management operation requiringsponsorship by management at the highest levels. Written by leading experts at Ernst & Young, Defending theDigital Frontier: A Security Agenda deconstructs digital securityfor executive management and outlines a clear plan for creatingworld-class digital security to protect your organization's assetsand people. Achieving and defending security at the DigitalFrontier requires more than just informed decision-making at thetop level. It requires a willingness to change your organization'smindset regarding security. Step by step, Defending the DigitalFrontier shows you how to accomplish that. With detailed examples and real-world scenarios, the authorsexplain how to build-in the six characteristics that a world-classdigital security system must possess. You must make yoursystem: * Aligned with the organization's overall objectives. * Enterprise-wide, taking a holistic view of security needs for theentire, extended organization. * Continuous, maintaining constant, real-time monitoring andupdating of policies, procedures, and processes. * Proactive to effectively anticipate potential threats. * Validated to confirm that appropriate risk management andmitigation measures are in place. * Formal, so that policies, standards, and guidelines arecommunicated to every member of the organization. An intrusion is bound to occur to even the most strongly defendedsystems. Will your organization be prepared to react, or lapse intochaos? Defending the Digital Frontier introduces the Restrict, Run,and Recover(r) model that guides organizations in formulating andimplementing a clear, enterprise-wide, Agenda for Action toanticipate, detect, and react effectively to intrusions. You willlearn how to roll out an effective Security Awareness and TrainingProgram, establish Incident Response procedures, and set in placeDigital Security Teams to control damage and manage risk in evenworst-case scenarios. The digital threat knows no borders andhonors no limits. But for the prepared organization, tremendousrewards await out on the digital frontier. By strengtheningcollective digital security knowledge from the top down anddeveloping a rock-solid, comprehensive, on-going security agenda,every organization can build a secure future.

Collaboration within digital humanities is both a pertinent and a pressing topic as the traditional mode of the humanist, working alone in his or her study, is supplemented by explicitly co-operative, interdependent and collaborative research. This is particularly true where computational methods are employed in large-scale digital humanities projects. This book, which celebrates the contributions of Harold Short to this field, presents fourteen essays by leading authors in the digital humanities. It addresses several issues of collaboration, from the multiple perspectives of institutions, projects and individual researchers.

Ubiquitous news, global information access, instantaneous reporting, interactivity, multimedia content, extreme customization: Journalism is undergoing the most fundamental transformation since the rise of the penny press in the nineteenth century. Here is a report from the front lines on the impact and implications for journalists and the public alike. John Pavlik, executive director of the Center for New Media at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, argues that the new media can revitalize news gathering and reengage an increasingly distrustful and alienated citizenry. The book is a valuable reference on everything from organizing a new age newsroom to job hunting in the new media.

The nexus between the digital revolution and adolescent sexual behavior has posed significant challenges to mental health practitioners, attorneys, and educators. These digital technologies may facilitate dangerous behaviors and serious consequences for some youth. Adolescent Sexual Development in the Digital Age considers adolescent sexual behavior in both clinical and legal contexts and provides a basis for clinicians, legal professionals, educators, policy makers, parents and the general public to understand the impact that technology has on human growth and development. The book's contributing authors are leading authorities in adolescent development, law, and ethics, fostering an interdisciplinary dialogue within the text. New technology poses many opportunities for both normal and risky sexual behavior in youth; including "sexting," social networking, cyber-sexual harassment, commercial exploitation of children, and child pornography. Beyond just cataloging the various technologies impacting sexual behavior, this volume offers guidance and strategies for addressing the issues created by the digital age.

Cyberactivism already has a rich history, but over the past decade the participatory web—with its de-centralized information/media sharing, portability, storage capacity, and user-generated content—has reshaped political and social change. Cyberactivism on the Participatory Web examines the impact of these new technologies on political organizing and protest across the political spectrum, from the Arab Spring to artists to far-right groups. Linking new information and communication technologies to possibilities for solidarity and action—as well as surveillance and control—in a context of global capital flow, war, and environmental crisis, the contributors to this volume provide nuanced analyses of the dramatic transformations in media, citizenship, and social movements taking place today.

Critical Theory and the Digital

This Critical Theory and Contemporary Society volume offers an original analysis of the role of the digital in today's society. It rearticulates critical theory by engaging it with the challenges of the digital revolution to show how the digital is changing the ways in which we lead our politics, societies, economies, media, and even private lives. In particular, the work examines how the enlightenment values embedded within the culture and materiality of digital technology can be used to explain the changes that are occurring across society. Critical Theory and the Digital draws from the critical concepts developed by critical theorists to demonstrate how the digital needs to be understood within a dialectic of potentially democratizing and totalizing technical power. By relating critical theory to aspects of a code-based digital world and the political economy that it leads to, the book introduces the importance of the digital code in the contemporary world to researchers in the field of politics, sociology, globalization and media studies.

Now almost 20 years old, the digital turn in architecture has already gone through several stages and phases. Architectural Design (AD) has captured them all – from folding to cyberspace, nonlinearity and hypersurfaces, from versioning to scripting, emergence, information modelling and parametricism. It has recorded and interpreted the spirit of the times with vivid documentary precision, fostering and often anticipating crucial architectural and theoretical developments. This anthology of AD’s most salient articles is chronologically and thematically arranged to provide a complete historical timeline of the recent rise to pre-eminence of computer-based design and production. Mario Carpo provides an astute overview of the recent history of digital design in his comprehensive introductory essay and in his leaders to each original text. A much needed pedagogical and research tool for students and scholars, this synopsis also relates the present state of digitality in architecture to the history and theory of its recent development and trends, and raises issues of crucial importance for the contemporary practice of the design professions. A comprehensive anthology on digital architecture edited by one of its most eminent scholars in this field, Mario Carpo. Includes seminal texts by Bernard Cache, Peter Eisenman, John Frazer, Charles Jencks, Greg Lynn, Achim Menges and Patrik Schumacher. Features key works by FOA, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Ali Rahim, Lars Spuybroek/NOX, Kas Oosterhuis and SHoP.
