            What does a museum do, and who is a museum for, in these times of historically low public trust in institutions and uncertainty precipitated by rapidly evolving technological, political, economic, and social contexts? Providing an examination of the complex interplay between the ...museum, digital technologies, and the dynamic external pressures shaping and transforming the institutional context, The Digital Future of Museums argues that museums today can neither ignore the importance of digital technologies when engaging their communities, nor fail to address the broader social, economic, and cultural changes that shape their digital offerings. Drawing on moderated conversations with well-respected and influential museum practitioners, thinkers and experts in related fields around the globe, this book explores the role of digital technology in contemporary museum practice within Europe, the USA, Australasia and Asia. With conversations organised around three key themes, this book will present a mix of ideas, practices,a strategies and reflections upon successful, and failed, projects and approaches grounded in cutting-edge contemporary practice that will help prepare today's museums for tomorrow. Culminating in a set of competing possible visions for the future of the museum sector and accompanied by videos and a podcast series, The Digital Future of Museums should be essential reading for museum studies students and those who teach or write about the museum sector. It should also be of great interest to those who work in, for, and with museums, as well as practitioners working in galleries, archives and libraries.

            Jim Simons is the greatest money maker in modern financial history. His record bests those of legendary investors including Warren Buffett, George Soros and Ray Dalio. Yet Simons and his strategies are shrouded in mystery. The financial industry has long craved a look inside Simo...ns's secretive hedge fund, Renaissance Technologies and veteran Wall Street Journal reporter Gregory Zuckerman delivers the goods. After a legendary career as a mathematician and a stint breaking Soviet codes, Simons set out to conquer financial markets with a radical approach. Simons hired physicists, mathematicians, and computer scientists - most of whom knew little about finance - to amass piles of data and build algorithms hunting for the deeply hidden patterns in global markets. Experts scoffed but Simons and his colleagues became some of the richest in the world, their strategy of creating mathematical models and crunching data embraced by almost every industry. Simons and his team used their wealth to upend the worlds of politics, philanthropy and science. They weren't prepared for the backlash. In this fast-paced narrative, Zuckerman examines how Simons launched a quantitative revolution on Wall Street, and reveals the impact that Simons, the quiet billionaire king of the quants, has had on worlds well beyond finance.

            THE ACCLAIMED NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. Because Internet is for anyone who's ever puzzled over how to punctuate a text message or wondered where memes come from. It's the perfect book for understanding how the internet is changing the English language, why that's a good thing, a...nd what our online interactions reveal about who we are. Language is humanity's most spectacular open-source project, and the internet is making our language change faster and in more interesting ways than ever before. Internet conversations are structured by the shape of our apps and platforms, from the grammar of status updates to the protocols of comments and @replies. Linguistically inventive online communities spread new slang and jargon with dizzying speed. What's more, social media is a vast laboratory of unedited, unfiltered words where we can watch language evolve in real time. Even the most absurd-looking slang has genuine patterns behind it. Internet linguist Gretchen McCulloch explores the deep forces that shape human language and influence the way we communicate with one another. She explains how your first social internet experience influences whether you prefer 'LOL' or 'lol', why -sparkly tildes- succeeded where centuries of proposals for irony punctuation had failed, what emoji have in common with physical gestures, and how the artfully disarrayed language of animal memes like lolcats and doggo made them more likely to spread. 'McCulloch is such a disarming writer - lucid, friendly, unequivocally excited about her subject - that I began to marvel at the flexibility of the online language she describes, with its numerous shades of subtlety.'
