Broad Band: The Untold Story of the Women Who M...
9,95 € *

The history of technology you probably know is one of men and machines, garages and riches, alpha nerds and brogrammers. But the little-known fact is that female visionaries have always been at the vanguard of technology and innovation - they've just been erased from the story. Until now. Women are not ancillary to the history of technology; they turn up at the very beginning of every important wave. But they've often been hidden in plain sight, their inventions and contributions touching our lives in ways we don't even realize. VICE reporter and YACHT lead singer Claire L. Evans finally gives these unsung female heroes their due with her insightful social history of the Broad Band, the women who made the Internet what it is today. Learn from Ada Lovelace, the tortured, imaginative daughter of Lord Byron, who wove numbers into the first program for a mechanical computer in 1842. Seek inspiration from Grace Hopper, the tenacious mathematician who democratized computing by leading the charge for machine-independent programming languages after World War II. Meet Elizabeth "Jake" Feinler, the one-woman Google who kept the earliest version of the Internet online, and Stacy Horn, who ran one of the first-ever social networks on a shoestring out of her New York City apartment in the 1980s. Evans shows us how these women built and colored the technologies we can't imagine life without. Join the ranks of the pioneers who defied social convention and the longest odds to become database poets, information-wranglers, hypertext dreamers, and glass ceiling-shattering dot com-era entrepreneurs. This inspiring call to action is a revelation: women have embraced technology from the start. It shines a light on the bright minds whom history forgot, and shows us how they will continue to shape our world in ways we can no longer ignore. Welcome to the Broad Band. You're next. 1.

If you loved Hidden Figures or The Rise of the Rocket Girls, you'll love Claire Evans' breakthrough book on the women who brought you the internet--written out of history, until now. "This is a radically important, timely work," says Miranda July, filmmaker and author of The First Bad Man. The history of technology you probably know is one of men and machines, garages and riches, alpha nerds and brogrammers--but from Ada Lovelace, who wrote the first computer program in the Victorian Age, to the cyberpunk Web designers of the 1990s, female visionaries have always been at the vanguard of technology and innovation.

'Good-Bye My Fancy' is an 1891 collection of poetry by Walt Whitman, intended to be a companion to his work 'Leaves of Grass'. Walt Whitman (1819 - 1892) was an American essayist, poet, and journalist who was pivotal to the transition from transcendentalism to realism. His work was notably divisive and claimed by many to be obscene when first published, but he is now considered to be one of the most influential people in the American poetic canon and the 'father of free verse'. Contents include: 'Sail Out for Good, Eidólon Yacht!', 'Lingering Last Drops', 'Good-Bye My Fancy', 'On, On The Same, Ye Jocund Twain!', 'My 71st Year', 'Apparitions', 'The Pallid Wreath', 'An Ended Day', 'Old Age's Ship & Crafting Death's', 'To The Pending Year', 'Shakespeare-Bacon's Cipher', 'Long, Long Hence', 'Bravo, Paris Exposition!', 'Interpolation Sounds', etc. Other notable works by this author include: 'Franklin Evans' (1842), 'Life and Adventures of Jack Engle' (1852), and 'Leaves of Grass' (1855). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

Mr. Connington here turns from the straight detective story to a mystery tale-a real thriller. The Trents have been lent for their honeymoon a large house on the lonely islet of Ruffa. Shortly after arriving, Trent accidentally intercepts a mysterious wireless message and, a bit later, stumbles across a wounded man who vanishes, leaving behind him an ingot which seems to have slipped out of his pocket and which later proves to be pure gold. Next day Trent comes upon a college acquaintance, now a consulting chemist, ostensibly bird-watching. The second house on the island is found to be under armed guard, and the Trents are warned away from it. A strange yacht with an armed crew appears in the bay. Finally, Trent learns that gold is being exported from Ruffa in quantity. Does it come from the Armada wreck in the bay? Or from some old Norseman's hoard? Or has the tenant of the other house discovered the secret of making gold? The rest of the book is more exciting than anything that Mr. Connington has yet offered his American audience, and most readers, although given all the necessary clues, will be amazed at the solution. Gold Brick Island (also known as Tom Tiddler's Island) was published in 1933. The Coachwhip edition includes an introduction by Curtis Evans.

'Inspector, it's-it's dastardly!' 'Mrs. Huntingdon,' said Knollis, 'your choice of words is admirable!' Inspector Knollis of Scotland Yard is hoping for a nice quiet weekend in the country. Instead he is embroiled in a murder case-the death by gunshot of local bigwig Richard Huntingdon. Jean, the dead man's wife, discovers the body in dense woods near a river. Knollis soon learns that Jean's previous husband also met an untimely end, not that she is the only suspect. Despite his reputation for good deeds, Huntingdon had enemies in the district, including the progressive Bishop of Northcote. And it turns out the late Mr. Huntingdon was intimately involved with a grade-A femme fatale. . . . Knollis, along with the redoubtable Sergeant Ellis, has to deal with a plethora of puzzling clues before solving this bucolic case of Murder most Foul. Key to the mystery is a toy yacht found floating on the river near the body-a craft almost identical to the gift recently received-anonymously-by Huntingdon's young daughter, Dorrie. The Ninth Enemy was originally published in 1948. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans. 'Francis Vivian skips all tedious preliminaries and is commendably quick off the mark; we meet his characters with lively pleasure.' Observer 'Mr. Vivian neatly fits everything in its place.'

Nemesis

Peter Evans's biography of Aristotle Onassis, Ari, metwith great acclaim when it was published in 1986. Ariprovided the world with an unprecedented glimpse of theGreek shipping magnate's orbit of dizzying wealth, twistedintrigues, and questionable mores. Not long after the bookappeared, however, Onassis's daughter Christina and hislongtime business partner Yannis Georgakis hinted toEvans that he had missed the 'real story' -- one that provedOnassis's intrigues had deadly results. 'I must begin,'Georgakis said, 'with the premise that, for Onassis, BobbyKennedy was unfinished business from way back...' His words launched Evans into the heart of a story thattightly bound Onassis not to Jackie's first husband, but tohis ambitious younger brother Bobby. A bitter rivalryemerged between Bobby and Ari long before Onassis andJackie had even met. Nemesis reveals the tangled thread ofevents that linked two of the world's most powerful men intheir intense hatred for one another and uncovers thesurprising role played by the woman they both loved. Theirpower struggle unfolds against a heady backdrop ofinternational intrigue: Bobby Kennedy's discovery of theGreek shipping magnate's shady dealings, which led him tobar Onassis from trade with the United States; Onassis'sattempt to control much of Saudi Arabia's oil; Onassis'suntimely love affair with Jackie's married sister LeeRadziwill; and his bold invitation to First Lady Jackie tojoin him on his yacht -- without the president. Just as theself-made Greek tycoon gloried in the chance to stir thewrath of the Kennedys, they struggled unsuccessfully tobreak his spell over the woman who held the key to all oftheir futures. After Jack's death, Bobby became ever closerto Camelot's holy widow, and fought to keep her frommarrying his sworn rival. But Onassis rarely failed to getwhat he wanted, and Jackie became his wife shortly afterBobby was killed. Through extensive interviews with the closest friends,lovers, and relatives of Onassis and the Kennedys, longtimejournalist Evans has uncovered the shocking culmination ofthe Kennedy-Onassis-Kennedy love triangle: AristotleOnassis was at the heart of the plot to kill Bobby Kennedy.Meticulously tracing Onassis's connections in the world ofterrorism, Nemesis presents compelling evidence that hefinanced the assassination -- including a startling confessionthat has gone unreported for nearly three decades. Alongthe way, this groundbreaking work also daringly paintsthese international icons in all of their true colors. FromEvans's deeply nuanced portraits of the charismatic Greekshipping magnate and his acquisitive iconic bride to hisprobing and revelatory look into the events that shaped anera, Nemesis is a work that will not be soon forgotten.
