Mindstorms has two central themes: that children can learn to use computers in a masterful way and that learning to use computers can change the way they learn everything else. Even outside the classroom, Papert had a vision that the computer could be used just as casually and as personally for a diversity of purposes throughout a person's entire life. Seymour Papert makes the point that in classrooms saturated with technology there is actually more socialization and that the technology often contributes to greater interaction among students and among students and instructors.

Times of the Technoculture explores the social and cultural impact of new technologies, tracing the origins of the information society from the coming of the machine with the industrial revolution to the development of mass production techniques in the early twentieth century. The authors look at how the military has controlled the development of the information society, and consider the centrality of education in government attempts to create a knowledge society. Engaging in contemporary debates surrounding the internet, Robins and Webster question whether it can really offer us a new world of virtual communities, and suggest more radical alternatives to the corporate agenda of contemporary technologies.

Dafur, dass Apple angekundigt hat, mit neuen Features mal zu pausieren, waren die Entwickler doch wieder ganz schon fleiig - es gibt kaum eine Funktion in Mac OS X 10.6, dem "Snow Leopard," die sie nicht angefasst haben. Schneller, glatter, besser ist das neue System... aber immer noch ohne beschreibendes Handbuch. Zum Gluck hat sich Dompteur David Pogue wieder daran gemacht, die Raubkatze auf Herz und Nieren zu prufen und zu zahmen. Mit Witz und Humor, aber auch der gebuhrenden kritischen Distanz schildert er, was wie geht - und was nicht. Die wichtigsten Neuerungen: Eine 64-Bit-Generaluberholung. Geschwindigkeit. Ein neu geschriebener Finder. Kompatibilitat mit Microsoft Exchange. Ein nagelneuer QuickTime-Player. Wenn Apple sich darum kummert, dann auch dieses Buch. Snow Leopard-Flecken: Auch die Hunderte von kleineren Verbesserungen in den 50 Programmen, die beim Mac dabei sind, werden hier enthullt. In Safari, Mail, iChat, der Vorschau, Time Machine... Tastenkurzel und Geheimgange: Dieses Mac-Buch ist bestimmt das trickreichste und uberraschendste, das je geschrieben wurde. Auf jeder Seite erwarten Sie undokumentierte Abkurzungen und unbekannte Kniffe. Der Turbolader: Sicherheit, Netzwerkthemen, Zusammenarbeit mit Windows-Rechnern in heterogenen Umgebungen, sogar der Unix-Unterbau von Mac OS X - dieses geistreiche Handbuch leuchtet alles bis in den letzten Winkel aus.
