The history of technology you probably know is one of men and machines, garages and riches, alpha nerds and brogrammers. But the little-known fact is that female visionaries have always been at the vanguard of technology and innovation - they´ve just been erased from the story. Until now. Women are not ancillary to the history of technology; they turn up at the very beginning of every important wave. But they´ve often been hidden in plain sight, their inventions and contributions touching our lives in ways we don´t even realize. VICE reporter and YACHT lead singer Claire L. Evans finally gives these unsung female heroes their due with her insightful social history of the Broad Band, the women who made the Internet what it is today. Learn from Ada Lovelace, the tortured, imaginative daughter of Lord Byron, who wove numbers into the first program for a mechanical computer in 1842. Seek inspiration from Grace Hopper, the tenacious mathematician who democratized computing by leading the charge for machine-independent programming languages after World War II. Meet Elizabeth ´´Jake´´ Feinler, the one-woman Google who kept the earliest version of the Internet online, and Stacy Horn, who ran one of the first-ever social networks on a shoestring out of her New York City apartment in the 1980s. Evans shows us how these women built and colored the technologies we can´t imagine life without. Join the ranks of the pioneers who defied social convention and the longest odds to become database poets, information-wranglers, hypertext dreamers, and glass ceiling-shattering dot com-era entrepreneurs. This inspiring call to action is a revelation: women have embraced technology from the start. It shines a light on the bright minds whom history forgot, and shows us how they will continue to shape our world in ways we can no longer ignore. Welcome to the Broad Band. You´re next. 1.

Ein kleiner Yachthafen: Heiß brennt die Sonne vom Himmel. Sie betritt gerade das Segelboot des Mannes, der ihr Herz im Sturm erobert hat.Der Hauch von Rosen, Bergamotte und Magnolien, der sie umhüllt, verströmt in der glühenden Hitze eine wohltuend frische Brise. Kaum an Bord, entfacht der betörende Duft mit Akkorden von florentinischer Iris und Zedernholz aus Virginia seine Sinne. Er leitet das Boot in eine kleine versteckte, vor neugierigen Blicken geschützte Bucht, in der sie ihre Leidenschaft ausleben können. Und so verrinnen die Stunden, warm und kristallklar wie das türkisblau Wasser, in dem die Yacht ankert; sie baden in einer Wolke aus Ambergris, Sandelholz, süßem Apfel und edlem Jasmin… und genießen ihr zauberhaftes Paradies der Liebe.

The deadly crusader has just lucked into an ex-dictator’s fortune. All he wants for the moment is to enjoy squandering his riches on women and yachts and women and private jets - and more women. But a horde of chanting cultists almost brainwashes him in Minnesota and he barely escapes a time-bomb explosion in San Diego. After getting word of the strange events, Hawk is on his way to Hong Kong to break open the most sensational case of his career - if he can live long enough to find the she-devil behind the mind twisters.

Like its predecessors, ´´Once Upon a Time´´ and ´´A Place in the Sun´´, ´´Poolside with Slim Aarons´´ offers images of jet-setters and the wealthy, of beautiful, glittering people living the glamorous life. Yet this new collection of stunning photographs of the rich and well-connected ´doing attractive things´ in their favourite playgrounds has a new twist. The main character is pools and everything that goes with them - magnificent, suntanned bodies, well-oiled skin, bikini-clad women, yachts, summer cocktails, sumptuous buffets, spectacular locations and most of all fun. ´´Poolside with Slim Aarons´´ is not so much a Who´s Who of society, aristocracy and celebrity - although C. Z. Guest, Lily Pulitzer, Cheryl Tiegs, Peter Beard and many who have appeared in the previous books are here - as it is about leisure time and how the rich make use of it. This is a more intimate peek into very private lives, to which Slim Aarons was given unprecedented access in the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties. From the Caribbean to Italy and Mexico to Monaco, ´´Poolside with Slim Aarons´´ whisks the reader away to an exclusive club where taste, style, luxury and grandeur prevail.
