Like it or not, knowing how to make use of online tools without being overloaded with too much information is an essential ingredient to personal success in the twenty-first century. But how can we use digital media so that they make us empowered participants rather than passive receivers, grounded, well-rounded people rather than multitasking basket cases? In Net Smart, cyberculture expert Howard Rheingold shows us how to use social media intelligently, humanely, and, above all, mindfully.

Mindful use of digital media means thinking about what we are doing, cultivating an ongoing inner inquiry into how we want to spend our time. Rheingold outlines five fundamental digital literacies, online skills that will help us do this: attention, participation, collaboration, critical consumption of information (or "crap detection"), and network smarts. He explains how attention works, and how we can use our attention to focus on the tiny relevant portion of the incoming tsunami of information. He describes the quality of participation that empowers the best of the bloggers, netizens, tweeters, and other online community participants; he examines how successful online collaborative enterprises contribute new knowledge to the world in new ways; and he teaches us a lesson on networks and network building.

Rheingold points out that there is a bigger social issue at work in digital literacy, one that goes beyond personal empowerment. If we combine our individual efforts wisely, it could produce a more thoughtful society: countless small acts like publishing a Web page or sharing a link could add up to a public good that enriches everybody.

The Young Professional's Survival Guide: From Cab Fares to Moral Snares

Imagine yourself in your new job, doing your best to make a good impression—and your boss asks you to do something that doesn’t feel right, like fudge a sales report, or lie to a customer. You have no idea how to handle the situation, and your boss is hovering. When you’re caught off guard, under pressure from someone more powerful, it’s easy to make a mistake. And having made one, it’s easier to rationalize the next one.

The Young Professional’s Survival Guide shows how to avoid these traps in the first place, and how to work through them if you can’t avoid them. Many of the problems that arise in the workplace are predictable. C. K. Gunsalus, a nationally recognized expert on professional ethics, uses short, pungent real-world examples to help people new to the work world recognize the situations that can lead to career-damaging missteps—and prevent them. Gunsalus offers questions to ask yourself (and others) to help you recognize trouble and temptation, sample scripts to use to avoid being pressured into doing something you’ll regret, and guidance in handling disputes fairly and diplomatically. Most of all, she emphasizes, choose your mentors for their characters as well as their titles and talents.

You can’t control the people around you, but you can control what you do. Reliance on a few key habits and a professional persona, Gunsalus shows, can help you advance with class, even in what looks like a “casual” workplace.

如何改變世界: 社會企業家與新思想的威力 (How to Change the World)

戴維伯恩斯坦 (David Bornstein)
online access from SuperStar Digital Library

商業企業家以經濟而言意味著什麼,社會企業家對社會變革就意味著什麼。

戴維‧伯恩斯坦寫道︰他們是那些為理想驅動、有創造力的個體,他們質疑現狀、開拓新機遇、拒絕放棄,最後要重建一個更好的世界。

《如何改變世界》講述的就是這些卓越個體引人入勝的故事。在美國,一個叫J.B.施萊姆的男人幫助了數以千計的來自低收入家庭的中學生進入大學。在南非,一個叫維洛尼卡‧霍薩的女人發展出一種以家庭為基礎的艾滋病病人護理模式,改變了政府的衛生醫療政策。在巴西,因為法維奧‧羅薩的努力,數以十萬計的邊遠農村居民用上了電。還有美國人詹姆斯‧格蘭特領導和“行銷”了一場全球兒童免疫運動,挽救了2,500萬個生命,也因此為自己樹立了聲望。再還有美國人彼爾‧德雷頓,他創建了一個自願者基地“阿育王”——資助和支持了這些社會企業家,以及千餘個像他們那樣的人,將它們的思想威力撒播到世界各地。

《如何改變世界︰社會企業家與新思想的威力》要告訴我們的是,憑著決心和創造精神,個人也能夠創造出非凡成就。對那些追求在世上留下一個正面印記的人而言,這即是一本激勵讀物也是一本無價的行動指南。它將改變你看世界的方式。
