Beiträge zur Verbraucherforschung (Reihe in 2 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: Die Aufmerksamkeit der Öffentlichkeit wurde lange durch die Privatsphäre in sozialen Netzwerken und das Tracking der Online-Werbewirtschaft gebunden, weil dies die sichtbare Seite des Verbraucherdatenschutzes ist. Die Beiträge des ersten Bandes der "Beiträge zur Verbraucherforschung" rücken einen zukunftsweisenden Trend ins Blickfeld der interdisziplinären Verbraucherforschung und der verbraucherpolitischen Akteure: die Informatisierung des Alltags. Im Zentrum der Beiträge steht die Frage, ob und wie die Datensouveränität der Verbraucherinnen und Verbraucher unter den Bedingungen des Konsums im Internet, der Nutzung digitaler Dienste und in einer vernetzten Welt erhalten, wiederhergestellt oder gestärkt werden kann.

Mit Beiträgen von

Prof. Dr. Britta Böckmann, Prof. Dr. Rainer Böhme und Sebastian Luhn, MSc, Prof. Dr. Georg Borges und Dipl.-Jur. Sascha Adler, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Greveler, Prof. Dr. Artus Krohn-Grimberghe und Prof. Dr. Christoph Sorge.

Reihe "Beiträge zur Verbraucherforschung"

Walden (AmazonClassics Edition)

At Walden Pond, Henry David Thoreau reflected on simpler living in the natural world. By removing himself from the distractions of materialism, Thoreau hoped to not only improve his spiritual life but also gain a better understanding of society through solitary introspection.

In Walden, Thoreau condenses his two-year, two-month, two-day stay into a single year, using the four seasons to symbolize human development—a cycle of life shared by both nature and man. A celebration of personal renewal through self-reliance, independence, and simplicity, composed for all of us living in “quiet desperation,” Walden is eternal.

Revised edition: Previously published as Walden, this edition of Walden (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Ethereum Mining: A Crash Course To Understanding Ethereum Mining Mechanisms For Beginners And Intermediates (Ethereum, Ethereum Mining, Cryptocurrency)

The detailed step-by-step process on learning Ethereum Mining!


 


What is mining?


 


Mining is the process of sorting through blocks in the blockchain, and approving of transactions. In an earlier chapter, we described how it's essentially the act of solving difficult code puzzles. Blocks in Ethereum don't actually represent currency, they represent anything of value, so they take the form of smart contracts. In normal systems, there's one central authority that does this work, but because Ethereum is a decentralized platform, it's up to all the nodes to make sure the record-keeping is accurate.


 


Here's what you'll learn:


 



  • Chapter 1: Ethereum As A Cryptocurrency

  • Chapter 2: Mining For Ether

  • Chapter 3: What Is Blockchain?

  • Chapter 4: What Is Mining Ethereum?

  • Chapter 5: What Are Cryptocurrencies?

  • Chapter 6: Pros And Cons Of Cryptocurrency

  • Chapter 7: The Technology Behind Cryptocurrencies

  • Chapter 8: Blockchain Technology

  • Chapter 9: How To Determine Mining Profitability

  • Chapter 10: Developing Dapps With Ethereum

  • Chapter 11: The Future Of Ethereum

FLATLAND - A Romance of Many Dimensions (The Distinguished Chiron Edition)
This special edition is a distinguished vintage reproduction, of the 1884 satirical novella Flatland, by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott. Meticulously elaborated by the editorial team of Chiron Academic Press in collaboration with the renowned literature publisher Edition l'Aleph (l-aleph.com), this special edition, pays particular attention to the very authentic details of the editorial of text and images, fine type setting, mise-en-page, production, and print. The result is a revival of the vintage for the 21st century's reader. Thus a unique reading experience for the book lovers and collectors of this genre. A recommended edition to libraries.

Writing pseudonymously as "A Square", the book used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to comment on the hierarchy of Victorian culture, but the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions. The story describes a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures, whereof women are simple line-segments, while men are polygons with various numbers of sides. The narrator is a square, a member of the caste of gentlemen and professionals, who guides the readers through some of the implications of life in two dimensions. The Square dreams about a visit to a one-dimensional world (Lineland) inhabited by "lustrous points", and attempts to convince the realm's monarch of a second dimension; but is unable to do so. . .
