Cypherpunks: Liberdade e o futuro da internet (Portuguese Edition)

by Julian Assange

Cypherpunks: liberdade e o futuro da internet é o primeiro livro de Julian Assange, editor-chefe e visionário por trás do WikiLeaks, a ser publicado no Brasil. A edição brasileira, da Boitempo, tem a colaboração do filósofo esloveno Slavoj Žižek e da jornalista Natalia Viana, parceira do WikiLeaks no Brasil e coordenadora da agência pública de jornalismo investigativo.

A obra é resultado de reflexões de Assange e de um grupo vanguardista de pensadores rebeldes e ativistas que atuam nas linhas de frente da batalha em defesa do ciberespaço (Jacob Appelbaum, Andy Müller-Maguhn e Jérémie Zimmermann). A questão fundamental que o livro apresenta é: a comunicação eletrônica vai nos emancipar ou nos escravizar?

Apesar de a internet ter possibilitado verdadeiras revoluções no mundo todo, Assange prevê uma futura onda de repressão na esfera on-line, a ponto de considerar a internet uma possível ameaça à civilização humana. O assédio ao WikiLeaks e a ativistas da internet, juntamente com as tentativas de introduzir uma legislação contra o compartilhamento de arquivos, caso do Sopa (Stop Online Piracy Act) e do Acta (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement), indicam que as políticas da internet chegaram a uma encruzilhada. De um lado, encontra-se um futuro que garante, nas palavras de ordem dos cypherpunks, “privacidade para os fracos e transparência para os poderosos”; de outro, a ação da parceria público-privada sobre os indivíduos, que permite que governos e grandes empresas descubram cada vez mais sobre os usuários de internet e escondam as próprias atividades, sem precisar prestar contas de seus atos.

Words on a Killing

by Will Lowrey

Behind the walls of an industry built on deception, there was one thing I was certain of – she was looking right at me. From the dim shadows of a metal chute in a New England slaughterhouse, her coal-black eyes proclaimed her sentience and questioned the very pillars of our beliefs.

“Words on a Killing” is the story of the poignant, final moments of a single life trapped within the system. An essential read to challenge your perspective on the other beings who share this world.

(Author’s Note: This work is approximately 7,000 words and is not a full-length book)

Quando o Google encontrou o WikiLeaks (Portuguese Edition)

by Julian Assange

Julian Assange conta seu encontro com Eric Schmidt, presidente do Google, discutindo os problemas políticos enfrentados pela sociedade – da Primavera Árabe ao Bitcoin – e as respostas tecnológicas geradas pela rede global para esses dilemas.

Depois da publicação de Cypherpunks: liberdade e o futuro da internet e há mais de dois anos asilado na Embaixada do Equador em Londres, Julian Assange, fundador e editor do WikiLeaks, lança no Brasil seu segundo e mais recente livro, Quando o Google encontrou o WikiLeaks. Ao longo de 168 páginas, Assange discute as consequências da acumulação de poder pelo Google no século XXI e relata seu encontro com Eric Schmidt, presidente do grupo, em 2011. O resultado é um livro fascinante e alarmante, que revela os polos opostos em que esses dois personagens icônicos da atual “era tecnológica” se encontram e suas opiniões divergentes sobre o destino do mundo e das novas tecnologias.

O livro ganhou destaque na imprensa internacional, noticiado em jornais como The Guardian e The Independent, por fazer parte da empreitada de Assange para revolucionar as formas de acesso à informação. Quando o Google encontrou o WikiLeaks apresenta a conversa entre Schmidt e Assange em forma de diálogo transcrito, e inclui ainda um prefácio redigido pelo fundador do WikiLeaks especialmente para a edição brasileira.

Safety Net (JKLS Counter Terrorism Book 2)

by Jacobus Kotze

The security industry is one of the fastest growing industries in South Africa, keeping pace with the tourism sector and it is needed. The released crime statistics make for horrendously bad reading and do not need to be repeated here but if the same amount of murders should take place in a country with the population of America, you look at 117,000 plus murders a year in that place. Such statistics would lead to a public outcry and resignations from the politicians carrying the burden of responsibility via the offices they swore to uphold. Sadly, such honourable behaviour will never happen here and have never happened in the past either. Politicians just don’t care. And it is not only that mass murders take place in South Africa, 18,000 a year if not more, one every 30 minutes, but the amount of brutality and violence involved in the murders, hijackings, house invasions that make the violent crime unique in the world. Nowhere else in the world do we find the same violence except in war-ravaged countries and then not even. Then there is torture. It is virtually assured that torture from the burning of the victims’ flesh with hot irons to much worse will happen during any home invasion. Whatever you may imagine, rape included will happen and happens regularly. As said, the statistics make for dreadful reading, but it is of no use to ignore a threat and hope for the best. Clearly, the legal system has failed and so did the South African Police Service for reasons discussed inside the book. You are on your own. Consequently, your security is in your hands and you must be preventative or fail. Most of the security and safety measures to be taken and advised in Safety Net are to be done long before any violent attack takes place, and nothing works in isolation, you need to many defensive layers and plan for the worst-case scenarios. We studied past criminal acts in this book, we look at how the criminals operate, and we advise how to counter them in the future as well as other threat which you may not even know about. Safety Net exposes which popular security measures are not effective as stated by the armed robbers themselves, and yet sold to the public by overeager salesmen. This is probably the most serious problem we have right now, a completely false sense of security. You are sold a basic alarm system coupled to an armed response team, the same in law as a cell phone contract, and think that you are safe… according to the robbers themselves you are not, they do not fear either an alarm nor armed response that much and they know how to overcome both. They fear CCTV if recording online, a dog inside the house and quite a few other measures that you can invest in but mostly it starts with training to be aware and to make life easier for the responders be it the police or armed response or medical. Something as simple as ensuring that your house is clearly marked by a street number may save your life. From my own police experience, I know how hard and frustrating it is to be unable to find the correct street address because the number is hidden behind a bush or just not there. Seconds count when you are bleeding, remember that, if you cannot be found, you cannot be rescued. Safety Net deals with layered defensive systems and much more, also the JKLS System of self-defence perfected by the author. The JKLS System is proven to have saved souls across the globe and one that costs no money to implement, it is simple and thus highly effective. This book will change the way you look at your security for the better and not only in South Africa, whatever is said here will work anywhere else as well. Safety Net is based on personal as well as many years of police and criminal justice experience. A book that must be read by home and business owners anxious about the safety of their families and workers from violent criminal attack.

Differential Undercounts in the U.S. Census: Who is Missed? (SpringerBriefs in Population Studies)

by William P. O’Hare

This open access book describes the differences in US census coverage, also referred to as “differential undercount”, by showing which groups have the highest net undercounts and which groups have the greatest undercount differentials, and discusses why such undercounts occur. In addition to focusing on measuring census coverage for several demographic characteristics, including age, gender, race, Hispanic origin status, and tenure, it also considers several of the main hard-to-count populations, such as immigrants, the homeless, the LBGT community, children in foster care, and the disabled. However, given the dearth of accurate undercount data for these groups, they are covered less comprehensively than those demographic groups for which there is reliable undercount data from the Census Bureau. This book is of interest to demographers, statisticians, survey methodologists, and all those interested in census coverage.
