            Sydney in the 1970s and 1980s was a world of limited choice, one where we all watched the same television programs and the household phone was at the heart of all networks people belonged to: family, school, church and the neighbourhood. The arrival of the internet promised a uto...pian, creative and democratic future that would break down traditional institutions and replace them with exciting collaborative networks. So how did we end up here? In Webtopia, Peter Lewis draws from his own pre- and post-tech experience and conversations with entrepreneurs, politicians, pastors, parents, teachers and journalists to show us that technology is not the problem. We are. If we fix our relationship with technology, it will be easier to fix our relationships with each other in a fragmenting world. Riveting, engaging and wise, Webtopia traces our digital journey to this point and, fearlessly, marks out the best route from here.

            Are you a parent struggling to set healthy, effective rules around technology in your house? Or have you already set clear parameters but find yourself outsmarted by your tech-savvy kids? Are you sick of hearing technology experts throw statistics and research at you with few pra...ctical parenting strategies on offer? Brad Marshall, The Unplugged Psychologist, is on the front line helping parents deal with the dominance of gaming and problematic technology use. His clinic, the Internet Addiction Clinic @ Kidspace, was one of the first in Australia established to help young children, teenagers and families whose lives are totally torn apart by technology. The Tech Diet for your Teenager provides real-life strategies that any parent can implement to create a healthy balance and put your kids' development first. Based on solid psychological research explaining why screen addiction is so powerful, Brad's jargon-free advice gives a clear plan for parents who have had enough and are serious about changing the way their kids use and interact with technology. The Tech Diet for your Teenager contains: Ways to apply workable solutions for excessive internet use and gaming rather than fighting about it Advice on how to take control of the Wi-Fi and manage smartphones and data Practical tips to help survive the school holidays How to tackle kids telling you they are doing 'homework' while switching screens A holistic plan that puts your child's wellbeing first, screens second Special information for children with conditions such as ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, anxiety and depression

            Service design is the activity of planning and organizing people, infrastructure, communication and material components of a service in order to improve its quality and the interaction between service provider and customers. It is now a growing field of both practice and academic... research. Designing for Service brings together a wide range of international contributors to map the field of service design and identify key issues for practitioners and researchers such as identity, ethics and accountability. Designing for Service aims to problematize the field in order to inform a more critical debate within service design, thereby supporting its development beyond the pure methodological discussions that currently dominate the field. The contributors to this innovative volume consider the practice of service design, ethical challenges designers may encounter, and the new spaces opened up by the advent of modern digital technologies.

            Now in its second edition, Cybercrime: Key Issues and Debates provides a valuable overview of this fast-paced and growing area of law. As technology develops and internet-enabled devices become ever more prevalent new opportunities exist for that technology to be exploited by cri...minals. One result of this is that cybercrime is increasingly recognised as a distinct branch of criminal law. The book offers readers a thematic and critical overview of cybercrime, introducing the key principles and clearly showing the connections between topics as well as highlighting areas subject to debate. Written with an emphasis on the law in the UK but considering in detail the Council of Europe's important Convention on Cybercrime, this text also covers the jurisdictional aspects of cybercrime in international law. Themes discussed include crimes against computers, property, offensive content, and offences against the person, and, new to this edition, cybercrime investigation. Clear, concise and critical, this book is designed for students studying cybercrime for the first time, enabling them to get to grips with an area of rapid change.

            This book explores the complex interplay of two very different worlds that share an affinity for many of the same genres of streaming videos found on YouTube and its Chinese counterparts Tudou and Youku. In focusing on videos that entertain both English and Chinese-speaking viewe...rs we can better understand where our cultural similarities and differences lie. Using a diverse range of examples, from musical mash ups of Cultural Revolution visuals with a sound track of Michael Jackson, to short clips of Hitler ranting about 21st century issues via Chinese subtitles, Life in the Fifth Dimension will explore how the ways in which traditional beliefs regarding gender and romance, religion and politics intersect, how these issues change over the years in response to new technologies and political economies, and how they engage in regional, transnational, and global dialogues.
