The Handbook of Peer Production Book Excerpt:

The definitive reference work with comprehensive analysis and review of peer production Peer production is no longer the sole domain of small groups of technical or academic elites. The internet has enabled millions of people to collectively produce, revise, and distribute everything from computer operating systems and applications to encyclopedia articles and film and television databases. Today, peer production has branched out to include wireless networks, online currencies, biohacking, and peer-to-peer urbanism, amongst others. The Handbook of Peer Production outlines central concepts, examines current and emerging areas of application, and analyzes the forms and principles of cooperation that continue to impact multiple areas of production and sociality. Featuring contributions from an international team of experts in the field, this landmark work maps the origins and manifestations of peer production, discusses the factors and conditions that are enabling, advancing, and co-opting peer production, and considers its current impact and potential consequences for the social order. Detailed chapters address the governance, political economy, and cultures of peer production, user motivations, social rules and norms, the role of peer production in social change and activism, and much more. Filling a gap in available literature as the only extensive overview of peer production’s modes of generating informational goods and services, this groundbreaking volume: Offers accessible, up-to-date information to both specialists and non-specialists across academia, industry, journalism, and public advocacy Includes interviews with leading practitioners discussing the future of peer production Discusses the history, traditions, key debates, and pioneers of peer production Explores technologies for peer production, openness and licensing, peer learning, open design and manufacturing, and free and open-source software The Handbook of Peer Production is an indispensable resource for students, instructors, researchers, and professionals working in fields including communication studies, science and technology studies, sociology, and management studies, as well as those interested in the network information economy, the public domain, and new forms of organization and networking.

European and International Media Law Book Excerpt:

Over the past half century, western democracies have lead efforts to entrench the economic and political values of liberal democracy into the foundations of European and international public order. As this book details, the relationship between the media and the state has been at the heart of those efforts. In that relationship, often framed in constitutional principles, the liberal democratic state has celebrated the liberty to publish information and entertainment content, while also forcefully setting the limits for harmful or offensive expression. It is thus a relationship rooted in the state's need for security, authority, and legitimacy as much as liberalism's powerful arguments for economic and political freedom. In Europe, this long running endeavour has yielded a market based, liberal democratic regional order that has profound consequences for media law and policy in the member states. This book examines the economic and human rights aspects of European media law, which is not only comparatively coherent but also increasingly restrictive, rejecting alternatives that are well within the traditions of liberalism. Parallel efforts in the international sphere have been markedly less successful. In international media law, the division between trade and human rights remains largely unabridged and, in the latter field, liberal democratic concepts of free speech are influential but rarely decisive. In the international sphere states are moreover quick to assert their rights to autonomy. Nonetheless, the current communications revolution has overturned fundamental assumptions about the media and the state around the world, eroding the boundaries between domestic and foreign media as well as mass and personal communication. European and International Media Law sets legal and policy developments in the context of this fast changing, globalized media and communications sector.

Crossbreeding Book Excerpt:

The book kicks off with an Overview of magical crossbreeding, looking at the ways arcane energies can be harnessed to recreate various magical creatures or entirely new species. Designing Magical Crossbreeds gives all the basic rules required to create new creatures. Complete rules and tables are given to allow players to specify the ability scores and special traits of their creations. Every aspect of the new creature's statistic block is detailed here, including attacks and face/reach. Transmutation Rituals covers everything such characters will need including laboratories and the acquisition of test 'subjects', as well as methods of pacifying them during the ritual. Having decided upon the ritual and acquired the 'base' creatures, the player may then use the rules in Creating Magical Crossbreeds to bring his new creation to life, bringing his arcane knowledge to bear along with any required materials. Advanced Procedures provide accomplished practitioners with a wide range of new options to further enhance their understanding of this art. The next chapter, Magic Items, provides practitioners with new objects of arcane power designed to enhance their transmutation rituals and increase the capabilities of the species they create. The last chapter Provides many Sample Hybrids for players to base their new designs on, or for Games Masters to quickly insert into their scenarios - and there are going to be many that get the creative juices flowing immediately. The book wraps up with a few words from Johnathan in the Designer's Notes.
