If someone called you a ´´googlewhack´´, what would you do? Would you end up playing table tennis with a nine year-old boy in Boston? Would you find yourself in Los Angeles wrangling snakes, or would you go to China to be licked by a performance artist? If your name is Dave Gorman, then all of these things could be true. Fuelled by a lust for life and a desperate desire to do anything except what he´s supposed to be doing (writing that novel and growing up), Dave falls under the spell of an obscure internet word game, Googlewhacking. Addicted to the game, and gripped by obsession, Dave travels three times round the world, visiting four continents and the unlikeliest cast of real life eccentrics you´ll ever meet in what becomes an epic challenge, a life-changing, globe-trotting Googlewhack adventure. 1.

By captivating millions during his six-year, 50-country tenure as The New York Times´ ´´Frugal Traveler´´, Seth Kugel has become one of our most internationally beloved travel writers. While his famously unassuming journeys around the globe have forged a signature philosophy of whimsy and practicality, they have also revealed the seemingly infinite booby traps of on-the-grid tourism. In a book with widespread cultural reverberations, Kugel takes the modern travel industry to task, determined to reignite humanity´s age-old sense of adventure that has virtually been vanquished by the spontaneity - obliterating likes of Google Maps, TripAdvisor, and Starwood points. Woven throughout with vivid tales of his perfectly imperfect adventures, Rediscovering Travel explains - often hilariously - how to make the most of new digital technologies without being shackled to them. For the tight-belted tourist and the first-class flyer, the eager student and the comfort-seeking retiree, Kugel reveals how we too can rediscover the joy of discovery. 1. Language: English.

I type ´´International Teaching Jobs´´ on the Google search line and find myself looking at a long list of teaching jobs all over the world. ´´Here´s a job in the Congo´´, I tell my wife, Chantal. ´´Africa!?´´ she asks with obvious surprise in her voice. ´´Yeah...really. They want a calculus teacher!´´ I respond. ´´I can do that!´´ ´´Okay,´´ Chantal says tentatively. ´´If you want.´´ I hit the submit button and my resume is off across the world. What follows are four action-packed years of living, working and traveling in sub-Saharan Africa. This book chronicles the second, third and fourth years of these adventures, including the day-to-day life of a teacher at The American School of Kinshasa from 2007-2009 who deals with a marginal infrastructure while facing the everyday challenges of living in a war-torn third-world country, and has some great adventures in South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Uganda and Zanzibar. 1.

Having captivated millions during his tenure as the New York Times´s ´´Frugal Traveler,´´ Seth Kugel is one of our most internationally beloved travel writers. With the initial publication of Rediscovering Travel, he took the corporate modern travel industry to task, determined to reignite an age- old sense of adventure that has virtually been vanquished by the spontaneity- obliterating likes of Google Maps, TripAdvisor, and Starwood points. Now in travel- friendly paperback, this ´´funny, inspiring and well- crafted´´ companion (Associated Press) reveals how to make the most of new apps and other digital technologies without being shackled to them. Writing for the tight- belted tourists and the fi rst- class fl yer, the eager student and the comfort- seeking retiree, Kugel shows all readers ´´not only where to look, but how´´ (Samantha Brown), and promises that we too can rediscover the joy of discovery. ´´Travel is not about the destination but the experience. . . . That´s what makes [it] so appealing, so addictive, and that´s what makes Rediscovering Travel so necessary.´´ - Peter Greenberg
Network revolutions of the past have shaped the present and set the stage for the revolution we are experiencing todayIn an era of seemingly instant change, it´s easy to think that today´s revolutions - in communications, business, and many areas of daily life - are unprecedented. Today´s changes may be new and may be happening faster than ever before. But our ancestors at times were just as bewildered by rapid upheavals in what we now call ´´networks” - the physical links that bind any society together.In this fascinating book, former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler brings to life the two great network revolutions of the past and uses them to help put in perspective the confusion, uncertainty, and even excitement most people face today. The first big network revolution was the invention of movable-type printing in the 15th century. This book, its millions of predecessors, and even such broad trends as the Reformation, the Renaissance, and the multiple scientific revolutions of the past 500 years would not have been possible without that one invention. The second revolution came with the invention of the telegraph early in the 19th century. Never before had people been able to communicate over long distances faster than a horse could travel. Along with the development of the world´s first high-speed network - the railroad - the telegraph upended centuries of stability and literally redrew the map of the world.Wheeler puts these past revolutions into the perspective of today, when rapid-fire changes in networking are upending the nature of work, personal privacy, education, the media, and nearly every other aspect of modern life. But he doesn´t leave it there. Outlining ´´What´s Next”, he describes how artificial intelligence, virtual reality, blockchain, and the need for cybersecurity are laying the foundation for a third network revolution.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in yo 1.
