The reading of books accompanied us since the invention of the printing press more than 550 years ago. Why should they change anything to this recipe for success?

New Release: CyberAge

Man and cyber in the challenges and conflicts of the 21st century Cologne, 29.08.2012. The book of CyberAge, edited by the Cybernetician Norbert Hering, spans the previously missing regulatory framework for the current field of cyber. CyberAge illuminates how far computer-run systems in various areas of society have already taken off the sovereignty of action man. On the stock exchange, the share of algorithmically automated transactions (laser trading) is growing, which makes past swell the capital flows at the officers to previously unimaginable heights; It is questionable whether the countries of the world get permanently under control this development. Similar currently unfolds in the international arms race (revolution in military affairs), again, it is not excluded that elude the information and control technologies of human control. Man as a diversified developer and initiator is the observer, without yet to understand the processes. The work is published by Wolters Kluwer appeared.

Downed a regulatory framework create whenever new technological possibilities which transform society, is also a basic grading a debate necessary. That was also the case of gene technique in nuclear technology. The concern of the authors is to question the Chief intentions just at the beginning of the triumphs of synthetic science. Editor Norbert Hering: Follow the projects of cyber law of freedom, in turn understood as assets, and will itself be a law? The project manager know what they are doing? Who integrates who? Integrated man the system, or the system the people?” Also, the Basic, based on Immanuel Kant, ethical reflection of the encyclopedia and currently treated subject digital technology is new to CyberAge. For the cybernetic revolution in nanotechnology, robotics, Internet and their civilian and military dimensions there is still no integrated and comprehensive debate,”says Hartwig von Schubert. While this is urgently needed. We need to get “against the background of rapid technological developments as people and society, the principle question: what is good and what is evil?” Genuine interdisciplinary approach of the engineer Norbert Hering and the theologians Hartwig von Schubert permeates the entire technological spectrum from the beginnings of digital data processing across the global networking and the Internet of things, such as for example hospitals, electricity and traffic lights up to the arsenals of cyberwar.

Writing Fun – Publishing Contract

But be careful with publishing contracts, a comparison of the services offered is indispensable. Only a few characteristics of good publishers are an ordinary publishing contract, help with the design of the book cover, a good editorial, sales, marketing, book fairs and press work. However, some publishers separately calculate these services and you should inform yourself carefully before conclusion of the contract the cost. So you can try there luck, where it is often the least suspected it. The aspiring author, rummages through the Internet, clicks from Publisher to Publisher. Always in the hope of somehow to accommodate his manuscript. Like he would talk with a Publisher or Publisher representatives.

First, he dabbles with prestigious, large publishers. “” “Nil: disappointment sneaking up, because in the large” the industry becomes an insignificant “rejected author mostly with the usual words you please or send your manuscript by mail” put off. There, where you be without obligation just like manuscript sends, unfortunately often this ends up in the shredder. Then he comes to publishers with huge presence and big names, who are only out to find authors. Authors who pay much money for it, so that your manuscript is taken. But be careful! Not every author published”is equal to author published”. Many bring out the book, but the marketing and sales of the author himself must worry about.

But how should he do that? He can engage as an individual not in the distribution network of bookshops. So hundreds copies of expensively acquired books are later at worst at home in the cellar and no one would like to have it. Or it will be in the new books on demand “procedures only on-demand printed and it retains a few a few copies to comparatively high production costs, which can be used just in the circle of friends of the author.” Where now with the manuscript? It’s easier than you think: try your luck at publishers who draw attention with a small indication perhaps that new authors are welcome. A good tip is the Working Group of smaller publishers (GAB) in the Stock Exchange Association of the German book trade. Although these publishers partly with grants or sponsors working, because you can not alone bear the risk of the cost still unknown authors, but these totals keep quite limited and they offer often much cheaper even all that big publishers offer. Only a few characteristics of good publishers are an ordinary publishing contract, help with the design of the book cover, a good editorial, sales, marketing, book fairs and press work. However, some publishers separately calculate these services and you should inform yourself carefully before conclusion of the contract the cost. So you can try there luck, where it is often the least suspected it. Like for example. Siegfried Franz

EBooks Everywhere? The Latest Trends In The EBook Market

The CeBit has just closed its doors. The Leipzig book fair will open its next week (03). A topic everywhere: eBooks. eBooks everywhere? The CeBit has just closed its doors. The Leipzig book fair will open its next week (03). A topic everywhere: eBooks. After one last year on the Leipzig and also the Frankfurt book fair in the autumn all opinion (if not common) had about eBooks, these are also in this year, not only in professional circles, again talking point No.

1. IPad by Apple, although at CeBit nor on the Leipzig book fair to see, certainly the discussion. Is it better or worse than Amazon’s Kindle? It has the makings of a real competitor? Will Apple put at risk even Amazon’s Marktfuherschaft? Is only, nothing is certain. The pricing of Amazon asserts itself (all eBooks for 9.90 euros) or succeed in higher prices the major publishers using Apple to enforce at least but higher profit margins? A response may You may only enter after the launch of the iPad sales. Would be what role Google will occupy what but not yet settled, because also the search engine giant wants to go there in the first half with its own eBook sales platform on the market. It will be exciting to see who will secure the biggest chunk of the growing cake at the end.

But maybe they cooperate well, what would be the worst variant may not even from the perspective of the buyer. On the German market everything looks ever again differently. Here the major publishers adhere continues to be covered regarding possible distributorships with Apple, Amazon or even Google. A private sales, as with the “Libreka” shopping portal (ever heard of it?) actually once is taken not consistently pursued. Maybe a real chance is playful just here the sales, at least in large part, to keep himself in the hand. That would be not so atypical. See music industry. As I said, Apple’s iPad the eBook reader world even before sales start swirls part confused. It has also some (Apple-typical) advantages. Good, simple, well-thought-out operation with some gadgets, great screen for colorful images. Video and music integration. This creates possibilities for new products: such as interactive newspapers or magazines with moving images. And run all iPhone apps, including that to read the Kindle eBooks on the iPad. Almost overlooked is the competition, because it offers also other concepts in addition to new products. Sony’s eBook reader like it although not quitschig colorful, but has some advantages with its inkjet technology. Load-carrying capacity of the Sony Reader for one to two weeks, instead of for 10 or 12 hours, as when the iPad is enough without this whole Daddelkram. It’s something for passionate readers instead of trendy consumers therefore perhaps, but thats also a large target group. Even if one that brought prices far viewing in circulation, are quite the competition benefits have, because their products are significantly cheaper. TrekStor presented even an eBook sales concept at CeBit with the reader, much like cell phone contracts, only 1 euro costs. So probably selling subscriptions of online newspapers in the future. And Nintendo has bought even an own authoritative its new DS console. Full of German classics. That will surprise the audience. And also Microsoft wakes, slow as always. Increasingly, one hears rumors of a prototype called “Courier”. To the second half of the year, believed to be professionals, be an eBook reader with fold-out double screen. This is a “real” book, then almost again! Note: eBooks everywhere!
