Beth Porter presents The Net Effect exploring not just how it evolved and what it does, but how it relates to the way we live. Most writing about the Net focuses on a particular aspect: its use for business, its driving technology, etc. This book aims at a broader target. It does contain some useful information about the How of the Internet, but it is more concerned with the Why of it.

2012 Honorable Mention from the Association of Internet Researchers for their Annual Best Book Prize Outstanding Academic Title from 2011 by Choice Magazine This book about America's romance with computer communication looks at the internet, not as harbinger of the future or the next big thing, but as an expression of the times. Streeter demonstrates that our ideas about what connected computers are for have been in constant flux since their invention. In the 1950s they were imagined as the means for fighting nuclear wars, in the 1960s as systems for bringing mathematical certainty to the messy complexity of social life, in the 1970s as countercultural playgrounds, in the 1980s as an icon for what's good about free markets, in the 1990s as a new frontier to be conquered and, by the late 1990s, as the transcendence of markets in an anarchist open source utopia. The Net Effect teases out how culture has influenced the construction of the internet and how the structure of the internet has played a role in cultures of social and political thought. It argues that the internet's real and imagined anarchic qualities are not a product of the technology alone, but of the historical peculiarities of how it emerged and was embraced. Finding several different traditions at work in the development of the internet—most uniquely, romanticism—Streeter demonstrates how the creation of technology is shot through with profoundly cultural forces—with the deep weight of the remembered past, and the pressures of shared passions made articulate.
As the world grows increasingly connected, an understanding of network security grows ever more relevant.

Category: Linear systems
As the world grows increasingly connected, an understanding of network security grows ever more relevant. We introduce two notions of relationships between nodes in networks: net path and net effect. Net effect has several security applications, however, net path can be easier to compute. We characterize and compare net path and net effect on linear dynamical networks. We specify cases in which the net path may be used to computer the net effect.
Mitch Walker, a young idealistic kid fresh out of seminary, struggles to find his way as the new pastor of a small and aging congregation, a flock that is content with being stagnant.
Author: Steve Parr
An instructional book told in narrative style, The Coffee Shop that Changed a Church: Discovering the Net Effect is as engaging as any good fiction. Author Steve Parr has emerged as a respected voice in communicating the true dynamics of churches that thrive in reaching and making disciples. His ideas are not only theoretical; he led a ministry that baptized over 1500 people in fourteen years. Parr's story follows Mitch Walker, fresh out of seminary, as he struggles to find his way as the new pastor of a small and aging congregation. After two years, the ambitious pastor realizes he is a shepherd whose flock is content with grazing alone out in the pasture-that is, until a chance encounter with a neighboring pastor turns his ministry upside down. The experienced pastor offers to meet regularly with Mitch at a nearby coffee shop to share his innovative strategies for leading an evangelism movement, called the Net Effect. The story flows between Mitch's successes in helping the church become more outwardly focused, the resistance he faces from key leaders, and the lessons he learns from the six essentials of the Net Effect. Through Mitch's successes and failures, readers learn how to apply key practices for helping a church become intentionally evangelistic and thus more healthy and vibrant. Evangelistic effectiveness, leadership tools, and the importance of relationships are presented as Parr creatively weaves together drama, humor, and instruction. More specific topics include leadership, personal evangelism, proclamation evangelism, evangelism through small groups, and servant evangelism. Dr. Parr crafted this book not only for pastors, but also for deacons, Bible study leaders, staff members, and church members who hold any leadership role within the church. In a fresh and entertaining format, The Coffee Shop that Changed a Church inspires, equips, and motivates readers to reach out and make disciples for Jesus Christ.

The Internet is a mixed blessing for libraries and librarians. On the one hand, it provides opportunities to add services and expand collections; on the other, it increases user expectations and contributes to techno-stress. Today, the Net is challenging the librarian's ability to select, threatening the survival of the book, necessitating continuous retraining, presenting unique problems of access and preservation, putting new demands on budgets, and embroiling information professionals in legal controversies. In "Net Effects, Marylaine Block examines the issues and brings together a wealth of insights, war stories, and solutions. Nearly 50 articles by dozens of imaginative librarians--expertly selected and annotated by the editor--suggest practical and creative ways to deal with the range of Internet "side effects," regain control of the library, and avoid being blindsided by technology again.
