A FINANCIAL TIMES BOOK OF THE MONTH FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: ´´ Nothing Mr. Gilder says or writes is ever delivered at anything less than the fullest philosophical decibel.. . Mr. Gilder sounds less like a tech guru than a poet, and his words tumble out in a romantic cascade.´´ ´´Google´s algorithms assume the world´s future is nothing more than the next moment in a random process. George Gilder shows how deep this assumption goes, what motivates people to make it, and why it´s wrong: the future depends on human action.´´ - Peter Thiel, founder of PayPal and Palantir Technologies and author of Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future The Age of Google, built on big data and machine intelligence, has been an awesome era. But it´s coming to an end. In Life after Google, George Gilder-the peerless visionary of technology and culture-explains why Silicon Valley is suffering a nervous breakdown and what to expect as the post-Google age dawns. Google´s astonishing ability to ´´search and sort´´ attracts the entire world to its search engine and countless other goodies-videos, maps, email, calendars....And everything it offers is free, or so it seems. Instead of paying directly, users submit to advertising. The system of ´´aggregate and advertise´´ works-for a while-if you control an empire of data centers, but a market without prices strangles entrepreneurship and turns the Internet into a wasteland of ads. The crisis is not just economic. Even as advances in artificial intelligence induce delusions of omnipotence and transcendence, Silicon Valley has pretty much given up on security. The Internet firewalls supposedly protecting all those passwords and personal information have proved hopelessly permeable. The crisis cannot be solved within the current computer and network architecture. The future lies with the ´´cryptocosm´´-the new architecture of the blockchain and its derivatives. Enabling cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ether, NEO and Hashgraph, it will provide the Internet a secure global payments system, ending the aggregate-and-advertise Age of Google. Silicon Valley, long dominated by a few giants, faces a ´´great unbundling,´´ which will disperse computer power and commerce and transform the economy and the Internet. Life after Google is almost here. For fans of ´´Wealth and Poverty,´´ ´´Knowledge and Power,´´ and ´´The Scandal of Money.´´

Google gives nonprofit organizations $10,000 per month in free advertising through its Google Ad Grants program. And unlike most grants, Google´s has an extremely quick application process and is very easy to get. So why do so few nonprofits participate in Google Ad Grants, and why do existing grantees struggle so much with maximizing its value to grow their organization? What´s the catch? The catch is this: Google Ad Grants is very difficult to administer unless you have extensive knowledge of and expertise with the Google Adwords program. Having $10,000 to spend is easy; actually spending it is, in fact, very difficult. And because Google provides very little support or guidance on how to spend the money, the average nonprofit grantee is only able to use a few hundred dollars of their $10,000 allotment each month. But not anymore. The Google Ad Grants Playbook changes all of that. Josh Barsch and Steve Isaacs of StraightForward Interactive have managed over 100 Google Ad Grants accounts over the past decade for charities worldwide and have cracked the code on how to extract the full value of Google Ad Grants for their clients. For the first time, they reveal their entire ´´playbook´´ - no holds barred, nothing left out - for helping their clients realize the full $10,000 of value from their Google Ad Grant, month after month after month. The Google Ad Grants Playbook is exactly that: a playbook. A set of easy-to-follow, step-by-step marching orders that your nonprofit can use to maximize the grant´s impact and grow your nonprofit organization. Don´t know how to use Google Adwords? No problem: the playbook covers all of the basics you need to know about how to build and manage your own campaigns from the ground up. Unsure about what you can advertise with the Ad Grant? What works and what doesn´t work? No problem: it´s all covered in great detail in the playbook. It´s the only guide you´ll ever need to taking your nonprofit to 1. Language: English.

Smooth Bourbon: An Education in Government, Google, and the CIA is the true story about one man´s fateful intersection between American government, one of the most elusive organizations in the world, and one of the most powerful corporations in existence today. It delves deep into the framework of US government and touches on sobering problems inherent within the Constitutional design, while at the same time interweaving stories that range from intriguing to humorous. Smooth Bourbon: An Education in Government, Google, and the CIA is intended for both high school- or college-level students who know very little about government and to better-informed listeners who are familiar with American government and are interested in hearing a fresh perspective. This audiobook is also intended for those interested in the intrigue around the CIA and for those interested in learning exactly what it´s like to work for Google. With college students in mind, this audiobook has easily accessible footnote citations to better facilitate research. It is organized in a binary fashion, with a chapter about the incredible experience of working for Google and going through the CIA´s very secretive interview processes, followed by chapters that detail different aspects of national governance. Every other chapter can best be characterized as a lecture. The real names and exact locations of all persons, except for the author, have been changed to protect the secrecy interests of the CIA and to provide confidentiality to all parties. To be sure, Smooth Bourbon is not intended to be a comprehensive account of government, Google, or the CIA. It is more of gripping story about my making sense of three very-misunderstood entities. The following audiobook represents personal arguments, many of them backed by scholars. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Giancarlo Maranzano.
