"We the Media, has become something of a bible for those who believe the online medium will change journalism for the better." - Financial Times

Big Media has lost its monopoly on the news, thanks to the Internet. Now that it's possible to publish in real time to a worldwide audience, a new breed of grassroots journalists are taking the news into their own hands. Armed with laptops, cell phones, and digital cameras, these readers-turned-reporters are transforming the news from a lecture into a conversation. In We the Media, nationally acclaimed newspaper columnist and blogger Dan Gillmor tells the story of this emerging phenomenon and sheds light on this deep shift in how we make--and consume--the news.

Gillmor shows how anyone can produce the news, using personal blogs, Internet chat groups, email, and a host of other tools. He sends a wake-up call tonewsmakers-politicians, business executives, celebrities-and the marketers and PR flacks who promote them. He explains how to successfully play by the rules of this new era and shift from "control" to "engagement." And he makes a strong case to his fell journalists that, in the face of a plethora of Internet-fueled news vehicles, they must change or become irrelevant.

Journalism in the 21st century will be fundamentally different from the Big Media oligarchy that prevails today. We the Media casts light on the future of journalism, and invites us all to be part of it.

Dan Gillmor is founder of Grassroots Media Inc., a project aimed at enabling grassroots journalism and expanding its reach. The company's first launch is Bayosphere.com, a site "of, by, and for the San Francisco Bay Area."

Dan Gillmor is the founder of the Center for Citizen Media, a project to enable and expand reach of grassroots media. From 1994-2004, Gillmor was a columnist at the San Jose Mercury News, Silicon Valley's daily newspaper, and wrote a weblog for SiliconValley.com. He joined the Mercury News after six years with the Detroit Free Press. Before that, he was with the Kansas City Times and several newspapers in Vermont. He has won or shared in several regional and national journalism awards. Before becoming a journalist he played music professionally for seven years.

This book is meant for everybody. It deals with the mistakes that normal people generally make, causing unforeseen troubles and unpleasantness in interpersonal relationships. It hampers one's competence in whatever is being done. Usually, these are described as gaps in communication or misunderstanding, words which do not focus on the fault and therefore, do not help correction. Polarised rigid stances and meaningless arguments can be avoided if one understands what really goes into the making of these problems. This book is an attempt to create that understanding. This is not attempted as a scholarly treatise and will not therefore, alienate readers who are impatient with heavy research based material. It should, hopefully, help the reader to become more effective in the pursuit of his/her objectives as an individual, as a member of a group or in an organisation. The book, though not intended to be a philosophical treatise, does explain some of the basic tenets that all prophets and spiritual leaders have been teaching, like attachment, desire and envy, based on misplaced values, being the source of anger and of sorrow, emotions that eat into one’s happiness. – The Author

SQL is full of difficulties and traps for the unwary. You can avoid them if you understand relational theory, but only if you know how to put that theory into practice. In this book, Chris Date explains relational theory in depth, and demonstrates through numerous examples and exercises how you can apply it to your use of SQL.

This third edition has been revised, extended, and improved throughout. Topics whose treatment has been expanded include data types and domains, table comparisons, image relations, aggregate operators and summarization, view updating, and subqueries. A special feature of this edition is a new appendix on NoSQL and relational theory.

  • Could you write an SQL query to find employees who have worked at least once in every programming department in the company? And be sure it’s correct?
  • Why is proper column naming so important?
  • Nulls in the database cause wrong answers. Why? What you can do about it?
  • How can image relations help you formulate complex SQL queries?
  • SQL supports "quantified comparisons," but they’re better avoided. Why? And how?
Database theory and practice have evolved considerably since Codd first defined the relational model, back in 1969. This book draws on decades of experience to present the most up to date treatment of the material available anywhere. Anyone with a modest to advanced background in SQL can benefit from the insights it contains. The book is product independent.
