The Crowd by Edgar Allan Poe, Der Mann In Der Menge The Man Of The Crowd Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Der Mann In Der Menge The Man Of The Crowd books, Poes Erzählung bildet thematisch den Auftakt für seine Geschichte "Die Morde in der Rue Morgue" (1841), die ein Jahr später erschien. Bereits in "The Man of the Crowd" stellt Poe das Verbrechen in den Mittelpunkt seiner Kurzgeschichte - allerdings nicht als konkrete Tat, sondern als personifizierte Moralkategorie. Doch für die Rezeption bei Charles Baudelaire und dann später bei Walter Benjamin spielten nicht die Verbrechensthematik, sondern andere Aspekte eine wichtigere Rolle. Ihr Interesse an "The Man of the Crowd" orientierte sich vielmehr an der von Poe erstmals beschriebenen Großstadterfahrung seines Erzählers. Denn anders als im Mittelalter oder der frühen Neuzeit ist hier die - nun auch nächtlich durch Gaslaternen erleuchtete - Stadt kein vertrautes Umfeld sozialer Beziehungen mehr, sondern wird zur Bühne einer anonymen Menschenmasse. Gerade für den heutigen Leser, der sich meist unreflektiert in der Anonymität und Unwirtlichkeit belebter Großstädte bewegt, wird durch die Lektüre dieser Kurzgeschichte die Genese einer historisch völlig neuartigen sozialen Erfahrungswelt nachvollziehbar. Um Selbstverständlichkeiten der gegenwärtigen Lebenswelt einmal kritisch und unterhaltsam in den Blick zu bekommen, lohnt es sich diese Geschichte zu lesen - nicht nur für Literaturwissenschaftler. Natürlich wurde - wie bei allen Werken der ofd edition - die ursprüngliche Druckfassung nicht automatisiert kopiert, sondern neu übersetzt und sorgfältig editiert - die bessere Lesbarkeit und Gestaltung verhelfen so zu einem ungetrübten Lesegenuss. Neben der deutschen Fassung finden Sie in diesem Buch auch die englischsprachige Originalversion.
The Crowd by Chris Lintott, The Crowd And The Cosmos Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Crowd And The Cosmos books, The world of science has been transformed. Where once astronomers sat at the controls of giant telescopes in remote locations, praying for clear skies, now they have no need to budge from their desks, as data arrives in their inbox. And what they receive is overwhelming; projects now being built provide more data in a few nights than in the whole of humanity's history of observing the Universe. It's not just astronomy either - dealing with this deluge of data is the major challenge for scientists at CERN, and for biologists who use automated cameras to spy on animals in their natural habitats. Artificial intelligence is one part of the solution - but will it spell the end of human involvement in scientific discovery? No, argues Chris Lintott. We humans still have unique capabilities to bring to bear - our curiosity, our capacity for wonder, and, most importantly, our capacity for surprise. It seems that humans and computers working together do better than computers can on their own. But with so much scientific data, you need a lot of scientists - a crowd, in fact. Lintott found such a crowd in the Zooniverse, the web-based project that allows hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic volunteers to contribute to science. In this book, Lintott describes the exciting discoveries that people all over the world have made, from galaxies to pulsars, exoplanets to moons, and from penguin behavior to old ship's logs. This approach builds on a long history of so-called "citizen science," given new power by fast internet and distributed data. Discovery is no longer the remit only of scientists in specialist labs or academics in ivory towers. It's something we can all take part in. As Lintott shows, it's a wonderful way to engage with science, yielding new insights daily. You, too, can help explore the Universe in your lunch hour.

The Crowd by Larissa Katharina Senninger, Wisdom Of The Crowd In Experiments Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Wisdom Of The Crowd In Experiments books, Larissa Katharina Senninger analyses the phenomenon of wisdom of the crowd in experimental capital markets. Aiming to find out which market mechanism is able to aggregate different information in a meaningful way, a continuous double auction and a call auction mechanism are tested. In line with expectations, markets with continuous double auction mechanism are better able to aggregate information and additionally take a shorter time. The author shows that receiving more information enables subjects to make better estimations, whereas more information improves the quality of estimations significantly only if it is a lot more information.

The Crowd by Gustave Le Bon, The Crowd A Study Of The Popular Mind Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Crowd A Study Of The Popular Mind books, The following work is devoted to an account of the characteristics of crowds. The whole of the common characteristics with which heredity endows the individuals of a race constitute the genius of the race. When, however, a certain number of these individuals are gathered together in a crowd for purposes of action, observation proves that, from the mere fact of their being assembled, there result certain new psychological characteristics, which are added to the racial characteristics and differ from them at times to a very considerable degree. Organised crowds have always played an important part in the life of peoples, but this part has never been of such moment as at present. The substitution of the unconscious action of crowds for the conscious activity of individuals is one of the principal characteristics of the present age.
The Crowd by Daniel Archambault, Evaluation In The Crowd Crowdsourcing And Human Centered Experiments Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Evaluation In The Crowd Crowdsourcing And Human Centered Experiments books, As the outcome of the Dagstuhl Seminar 15481 on Crowdsourcing and Human-Centered Experiments, this book is a primer for computer science researchers who intend to use crowdsourcing technology for human centered experiments. The focus of this Dagstuhl seminar, held in Dagstuhl Castle in November 2015, was to discuss experiences and methodological considerations when using crowdsourcing platforms to run human-centered experiments to test the effectiveness of visual representations. The inspiring Dagstuhl atmosphere fostered discussions and brought together researchers from different research directions. The papers provide information on crowdsourcing technology and experimental methodologies, comparisons between crowdsourcing and lab experiments, the use of crowdsourcing for visualisation, psychology, QoE and HCI empirical studies, and finally the nature of crowdworkers and their work, their motivation and demographic background, as well as the relationships among people forming the crowdsourcing community.
The Crowd by Joanna Merwood-Salisbury, Design For The Crowd Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Design For The Crowd books, Situated on Broadway between Fourteenth and Seventeenth Streets, Union Square occupies a central place in both the geography and the history of New York City. Though this compact space was originally designed in 1830 to beautify a residential neighborhood and boost property values, by the early days of the Civil War, New Yorkers had transformed Union Square into a gathering place for political debate and protest. As public use of the square changed, so, too, did its design. When Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux redesigned the park in the late nineteenth century, they sought to enhance its potential as a space for the orderly expression of public sentiment. A few decades later, anarchists and Communist activists, including Emma Goldman, turned Union Square into a regular gathering place where they would advocate for radical change. In response, a series of city administrations and business groups sought to quash this unruly form of dissidence by remaking the square into a new kind of patriotic space. As Joanna Merwood-Salisbury shows us in Design for the Crowd, the history of Union Square illustrates ongoing debates over the proper organization of urban space—and competing images of the public that uses it. In this sweeping history of an iconic urban square, Merwood-Salisbury gives us a review of American political activism, philosophies of urban design, and the many ways in which a seemingly stable landmark can change through public engagement and design. Published with the support of Furthermore: a program of the J. M. Kaplan Fund.

The Crowd by Nancy K. Baym, Playing To The Crowd Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Playing To The Crowd books, "Playing to the Crowd explores and explains how the rise of digital communication platforms has transformed artist-fan relationships into something more intimate. Through in-depth interviews with musicians such as the Cure, UB40, and Throwing Muses, Nancy K. Baym reveals how new media has facilitated connections through the active participation of both the artists and their devoted digital fan base. Before the rise of online sharing and user-generated content, audiences were mostly seen as undifferentiated masses, often mediated through record labels and the press. Today, musicians and fans have built more active relationships through social media, fan sites, and artist sites, giving them a new sense of intimacy, while offering artists unparalleled access to and information about their audiences. But this comes at a price. For audiences, meeting their heroes can kill the mystique. And for artists, maintaining active relationships with so many people can be labor intensive and emotionally draining. Drawing on her own rich history as a deeply connected music fan, Baym offers an entirely new approach to media culture, arguing that the work musicians put into maintaining these intimate relationships reflects the demands of the gig economy, one which requires resources and strategies that we all music come to recognize"--Publisher's description.
The Crowd by Paul Windridge, A Seat In The Crowd Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Seat In The Crowd books, "A Seat in the Crowd" is about travelling the length and breadth of England and Europe in order to watch Manchester United. It is about the lifelong journey of two supporters (with the help of one or two friends along the way) who have been following their club for over 40 years each. A lifetime's support which has enjoyed a renaissance over the last decade due to the superb management of Alex Ferguson, who has taken the team, and consequently us too, to heights never before scaled. At the start of any season no-one can possibly know the outcome. Plenty think they do, but that is mere blind faith. It is an adventure which happens every year and these last few years have been very special to United supporters and most especially to us. Through the internet and the Manchester United mailing lists some of us have found friendship which will last the test of time. Apart from family, none of us mentioned in this book knew each other four years ago, but we are now a group of friends who have become an extended family. "A Seat in the Crowd" is just as much about these people as it is about the team on the pitch.

For Mary, that means being remembered for her tragic losses, even if she'd rather get on with her life. For her cousin Ivan, as close as a brother, the gossip is all about how his wife took the kids and ran off with her new lover. For Mary's friend Penny, it's an old romance that didn't work out quite right, and a current affair with a bottle of vodka. Then Sam Sullivan rents the cottage next door to Mary, and within hours the whole town is talking about the film-star-handsome American. When Sam hurts his back while helping his new neighbor and spends the next week confined to a mattress on her floor, gossip runs rampant. But neither Kenmare nor Mary know about the secrets Sam is so successfully hiding.... For Mary's circle of friends, Sam's arrival marks more than one change. And Mary -- whose unlucky history has kept her apart from the crowd much of her life -- has finally found a man with whom she feels she might truly connect. But so long as both are captive to memories they dare not reveal, the past is a barrier that will keep them forever alone.

The Crowd by Robert J. Sternberg, Defying The Crowd Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Defying The Crowd books, World renowned psychologist Robert Sternberg presents a fresh and compelling picture of the creative process from the inception of an idea to its ultimate success. With illuminating examples, Sternberg reveals the paths we all can take to become more creative and shows how institutions can learn to foster creativity. “What is creative is new and often brings about positive change. But what is new is also strange, and what is strange can be scary, even threatening—which is why ‘they’ don’t want to hear it. But they are unwise not to listen, for the creative person with original ideas is the one who, with support, will advance and improve the milieu to the benefit of all.” —from Defying the Crowd

This simple promotion, a way of encouraging regular purchasing of match day programmes, also managed to create an unintentional visual record of football supporters over the decades.0They might seem reminders of an apparently less complicated era, but these images conjure darker, more disturbing echoes: those of faces caught in the cross hairs of an unseen assassin?s rifle, or tracked by the lens of surveillance cameras of some sinister dystopian world. A harbinger of a time when we can no longer be just an anonymous face in the crowd.0The images are introduced and selected by Alan Dein, an oral historian and a multi-award-winning radio documentary presenter.
