Navigating The Cyberworld With Your Child
Addictive Internet use is a relatively new phenomenon which many people are unaware of and subsequently do not seek treatment for. While there is no escaping the use of the Internet in schools and offices in today’s technology-driven world, excessive Internet use may lead to deteriorating relationships or interfere with life’s responsibilities. This book compiles a series of articles about the different types of Internet-related addictions that a child or teenager may face, such as pornography, social networking, gaming and online shopping. It also explores the legal problems that arise from cybercrimes and discusses the services and programmes available for both the victims and perpetrators. Finally, it explores the implications of future technology and research into this area.

Pixels use electricity. If the internet were a country, it would be the sixth largest in terms of electricity use. The average web page (according to the “HTTP Archive”) is now over 2 megabytes in size. Bloated websites lead to slow load times, frustrated users, and wasted energy.This book identifies four key areas where sustainability principles can be applied to the process of creating websites that are speedy, user-friendly and energy-efficient: findability, performance optimization, design and user experience, and green hosting.Design and user experience (UX) are where the seeds of web sustainability are sown. Websites that provide a streamlined experience putting the right things in front of users at precisely the moment needed and nothing more are more sustainable websites. In the case of the web, people-friendly is also more planet-friendly. This book will help you get there.”

Relations between the public and holders of political authority are in a period of transformative flux. On the one side, new expectations and meanings of citizenship are being entertained and occasionally acted upon. On the other, an inexorable impoverishment of mainstream political communication is taking place. This book argues that the Internet has the potential to improve public communications and enrich democracy, a project that requires imaginative policy-making. This argument is developed through three stages: first exploring the theoretical foundations for renewing democratic citizenship, then examining practical case studies of e-democracy, and finally, reviewing the limitations of recent policies designed to promote e-democracy and setting out a radical, but practical proposal for an online civic commons: a trusted public space where the dispersed energies, self-articulations and aspirations of citizens can be rehearsed, in public, within a process of ongoing feedback to the various levels and centers of governance: local, national and transnational.
