The internet and the mobile phone have disrupted many of our conventional understandings of ourselves and our relationships, raising anxieties and hopes about their effects on our lives. In this second edition of her timely and vibrant book, Nancy Baym provides frameworks for thinking critically about the roles of digital media in personal relationships. Rather than providing exuberant accounts or cautionary tales, it offers a data-grounded primer on how to make sense of these important changes in relational life Fully updated to reflect new developments in technology and digital scholarship, the book identifies the core relational issues these media disturb and shows how our talk about them echoes historical discussions about earlier communication technologies. Chapters explore how we use mediated language and nonverbal behavior to develop and maintain communities, social networks, and new relationships, and to maintain existing relationships in our everyday lives. The book combines research findings with lively examples to address questions such as: Can mediated interaction be warm and personal? Are people honest about themselves online? Can relationships that start online work? Do digital media damage the other relationships in our lives? Throughout, the book argues that these questions must be answered with firm understandings of media qualities and the social and personal contexts in which they are developed and used. This new edition of Personal Connections in the Digital Age will be required reading for all students and scholars of media, communication studies, and sociology, as well as all those who want a richer understanding of digital media and everyday life.

Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination

Author: Katharine A. Harmon

Mapmaking fulfills one of our most ancient and deepseated desires: understanding the world around us and our place in it. But maps need not just show continents and oceans: there are maps to heaven and hell; to happiness and despair; maps of moods, matrimony, and mythological places. There are maps to popular culture, from Gulliver's Island to Gilligan's Island. There are speculative maps of the world before it was known, and maps to secret places known only to the mapmaker. Artists' maps show another kind of uncharted realm: the imagination. What all these maps have in common is their creators' willingness to venture beyond the boundaries of geography or convention. You Are Here is a wide-ranging collection of such superbly inventive maps. These are charts of places you're not expected to find, but a voyage you take in your mind: an exploration of the ideal country estate from a dog's perspective; a guide to buried treasure on Skeleton Island; a trip down the road to success; or the world as imagined by an inmate of a mental institution. With over 100 maps from artists, cartographers, and explorers, You are Here gives the reader a breath-taking view of worlds, both real and imaginary.

Der Wert der Ressource Personal

die Saarbrcker Formel als Instrument der Humankapitalbewertung

Was verbirgt sich hinter dem Begriff Humankapital? Stellt er das 'Urwort' fur alle Fahigkeiten und Fertigkeiten des Mitarbeiters dar, oder degradiert er als 'Unwort' nicht nur das Personal in Unternehmen, sondern Menschen uberhaupt zu lediglich okonomisch interessanten Grossen? Kann jener mitarbeiterbezogene Wert des Unternehmens mit monetaren Grossen, mit Kennzahlen, bewertet und exakt gemessen werden? Ist es uberhaupt, unter ethisch-moralischen Gesichtspunkten, unter expliziter Beachtung der Menschenwurde, vertretbar, den Wert der Mitarbeiter monetar, auf Euro und Cent genau, bestimmen zu wollen? Den Faktor Mitarbeiter 'richtig' bewerten! Aber wie, in Anbetracht der Tatsache, dass grundsatzlich enorme Schwierigkeiten mit der Definition, der Erfassung und der systematischen Bewertung des Humankapitals im Unternehmen verbunden sind. Die Schaffung umsetzbarer, praxisnaher Instrumente zur Messung und Bewertung des Humankapitals stellt sowohl eine Herausforderung, als auch eine betriebswirtschaftliche Notwendigkeit dar. Welche Moglichkeiten und Ansatze gibt es fur Unternehmen sich dieser notwendigen Herausforderung, dieser herausfordernden Notwendigkeit zu stellen? Oder existiert am Ende gar ein 'Konigsweg' hinsichtlich einer Bewertung der Ressource Personal? Ziel dieser Publikation ist es, adaquate Antworten bezuglich jener vielschichtigen, kontroversen Fragen zum Thema 'Humankapital' zu finden. Lediglich ein kritisches Hinterfragen, ein Konglomerat aus Antworten, bietet die Moglichkeit jene umfangreiche Thematik in ihrer Ganze zu erfassen. Dies stellt furwahr kein leichtes Unterfangen dar, gehen Fragestellungen und mithin zwangslaufig die Suche nach adaquaten Antworten weit uber das Gebiet der Wirtschaftswissenschaften hinaus. Die ersten Kapitel des vorliegenden Buches zeigen auf, dass Humankapital mehr darstellt als einen Begriff der, nach dem Schema 'genus proximum, differentia specifica', abgegrenzt definiert werden kann und dass jenes eingebettet ist in einen R
