            In his sophomore year of college, Mark Zuckerberg created a simple website to serve as a campus social network. But the site caught on like wildfire, and soon students nationwide were on Facebook. Today, Facebook is nearly unrecognizable from Zuckerberg's first, modest iteration.... It has grown into a tech giant, the largest social media platform and one of the most gargantuan companies in the world with over 2.23 billion global users. Love it or hate it, there is no denying the power and omnipresence of Facebook in daily life. And in light of growing scandals surrounding election-influencing 'fake news' accounts, the mining of its users' personal data, and growing discontent with the actions of its founder and CEO, never has the company been more central to the international conversation.

            If you wanted to build a machine that would distribute propaganda to millions of people, distract them from important issues, energize hatred and bigotry, erode social trust, undermine respectable journalism, foster doubts about science, and engage in massive surveillance all at ...once, you would make something a lot like Facebook. Of course, none of that was part of the plan. In this fully updated paperback edition of Antisocial Media, Siva Vaidhyanathan explains how Facebook devolved from an innocent social site hacked together by Harvard students into a force that, while it may make personal life just a little more pleasurable, makes democracy a lot more challenging. It's an account of the hubris of good intentions, a missionary spirit, and an ideology that sees computer code as the universal solvent for all human problems. And it's an indictment of how social media has fostered the deterioration of democratic culture around the world, from facilitating Russian meddling in support of Trump's election to the exploitation of the platform by murderous authoritarians in Burma and the Philippines. Both authoritative and trenchant, Antisocial Media shows how Facebook's mission went so wrong.

            JavaScript: The New Toys begins with a high-level list of the new features of JavaScript in "ES2015" and "ES2016," along with a discussion of the new process by which new features are added to the language, who's responsible, how to keep track of what's coming, and how to get inv...olved. Setup information comes next as not all JavaScript environments have the new features yet. After that the bulk of the book covers point-by-point "just the facts" coverage of the new features, along with recommendations for how old habits can be updated to take advantage of them. In those chapters, when introducing a new feature, we open with examples of the problems it helps solve, then explore how the new feature solves them and the details (without getting too academic) of how it works. We end with a brief look ahead ES2017 and ES2018. Four key topics amongst the coverage are: New let and const declarations: Why they're useful, how to use them, some non-obvious things they do for us. Classes: What problems they solve, how they work, how they both are and are not new, syntax details. Arrow functions and lexical this: Why we want to use them, how to use them, details of how they work. Promises: What they do for us, how to use them, some common pitfalls, technical details. In all cases, source code will primarily be fairly brief examples demonstrating the syntax and behavior of the features being discussed.

            The internet is a network of physical cables and connections, a web of wires enmeshing the world, connecting huge data centres to one another and eventually to us. All are owned by someone, financed by someone, regulated by someone. We refer to the internet as abstract from reali...ty. By doing so, we obscure where the real power lies. In this powerful and necessary book, James Ball sets out on a global journey into the inner workings of the System. From the computer scientists to the cable guys, the billionaire investors to the ad men, the intelligence agencies to the regulators, these are the real-life figures powering the internet and pulling the strings of our society. Ball brilliantly shows how an invention once hailed as a democratising force has concentrated power in places it already existed - that the System, in other words, remains the same as it did before.
