The internet was never intended for you, opines Brian McCullough in this lively narrative of an era that utterly transformed everything we thought we knew about technology. In How the Internet Happened, he chronicles the whole fascinating story for the first time, beginning in a dusty Illinois basement in 1993, when a group of college kids set off a once-in-an-epoch revolution with what would become the first "dotcom." Depicting the lives of now-famous innovators like Netscape's Marc Andreessen and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, McCullough also reveals surprising quirks and unknown tales as he tracks both the technology and the culture around the internet's rise. Cinematic in detail and unprecedented in scope, the result both enlightens and informs as it draws back the curtain on the new rhythm of disruption and innovation the internet fostered, and helps to redefine an era that changed every part of our lives"--

The secret lives of children in the digital age : disruptive devices and resourceful learners / by Laidlaw, Linda,author.; O'Mara, Joanne,author.; Wong, Suzanna So Har,author.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Foreword / Dennis Sumara -- Introduction -- Living in the iWorld: two literacy researchers reflect on the changing texts and literacy practices of childhood -- Early literacy instruction and complexity -- Rethinking difference in the iWorld -- Parents and teachers, disrupted -- Locking up the iPads: administrative controls and resourceful teachers -- Big brother, little sister: digital surveillance at home and at school -- Secret lives, private spaces, and social media -- A conclusion: stumbling toward the digital future -- Afterword / Jill Blackmore.Secret Lives of Children in the Digital Age: Disruptive Devices and Resourceful Learners offers an examination of the impact on children, their families and their teachers, as digital technologies and new literacy practices have rapidly transformed how children learn, play and communicate. While ease of access to enormous knowledge bases presents many benefits and advantages, mobile screen technologies are often perceived by parents and teachers as disruptive and worrisome. Developed from a wide range of the authors' research over the past decade to an examination of remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, this book posits that while teachers, parents and governments are focused on protecting children, what is often neglected is children's own agency and capacity to engage with mobile technologies in ways that support them in pursuing their own interests, pleasures and learning. This text works to disrupt boundaries in research, policy and practice, between home and school, and across virtual and actual worlds, positing children as both users of media texts and coproducers of digitally mediated knowledge, with peers, family and teachers. Secret Lives of Children in the Digital Age contributes to research on digital literacies, and offers a pedagogical examination of digital possibilities for bringing playfulness and innovation into learning.

Internet child pornography : causes, investigation, and prevention / by Wortley, Richard(Richard K.); Smallbone, Stephen.;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 131-150) and index.Series foreword / by Graeme R. Newman -- Before the internet -- Enter the internet -- Who are the offenders? -- Investigating child pornography -- Impacts of internet child pornography -- Prevention : offenders and victims -- Prevention : the internet and related technologies -- Conclusion -- References -- Index.There is no doubt that child pornography on the Internet is a serious and escalating problem. Some estimates are that up to 20 percent of pornography on the Internet involves depictions of minors, 90 percent of whom appear to be under the age of 12 years. Some offenders have been arrested with collections of up to one million images. The role of the Internet in fueling the problem of child pornography is enormous. Prior to the Internet, child pornography was typically locally produced, of poor quality, expensive, and difficult to obtain. U.S. law enforcement officials were able to boast in the late 1970s that the traffic in child pornography had virtually been eliminated. The advent of the Internet in the 1980s made vast quantities of child pornography instantly available in the privacy of the viewer's home. Today, the child pornography problem largely exists because of the opportunities provided by the Internet. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the issue by describing the problem of child pornography, examining the impact of the Internet, and presenting a profile of users. With this foundation in place, the authors then address responses to child pornography and shed light on the complexities of dealing with criminal activities that are perpetrated largely online -- for example, the fact that people behave differently in online environments than they do in other areas of their lives. The book examines prevention efforts designed to reduce access to child pornography, law enforcement responses designed to catch known offenders, and treatment responses designed to reduce reoffending.

The joy of search : a Google insider's guide to going beyond the basics / by Russell, Daniel,1955-author.;
Includes bibliographical references (pages 303-316) and index.We all know how to look up something online by typing words into a search engine. We do this so often that we have made the most famous search engine a verb" we Google it--"Japan population" or "Nobel Peace Prize" or "poison ivy" or whatever we want to know. But knowing how to Google something doesn't make us search experts; there's much more we can do to access the massive collective knowledge available online. In The Joy of Search, Daniel Russell shows us how to be great online researchers. We don't have to be computer geeks or a scholar searching out obscure facts; we just need to know some basic methods. Russell demonstrates these methods with step-by-step searches for answers to a series of intriguing questions--from "what is the wrong side of a towel?" to "what is the most likely way you will die?" Along the way, readers will discover essential tools for effective online searches--and learn some fascinating facts and interesting stories. Russell explains how to frame search queries so they will yield information and describes the best ways to use such resources as Google Earth, Google Scholar, Wikipedia, and Wikimedia. He shows when to put search terms in double quotes, how to use the operator (*), why metadata is important, and how to triangulate information from multiple sources. By the end of this engaging journey of discovering, readers will have the definitive answer to why the best online searches involve more than typing a few words into Google. -- Dust jacket flap.
