    The unfailing true story of the world's first Op-Ed page, a public platform that - in 1970 - prefigured the Internet blogosphere. The New York Time's nonstaff bylines shattered tradition, but even more revolutionary were the pictures. Unlike anything ever seen in a newspaper, Op-Ed art became a globally influential idiom that reached beyond narrative for metaphor and changed illustrations's very purpose and potential. Art director Jerelle Kraus, whose 13 years at the Op's helm far exceeds that of any other art director, unveils a riveting account of her tenure. Illus.

    In the spring of 1970, artist Ralph Steadman came to the United States in search of work and found more than he bargained for when he met Hunter S. Thompson at the Kentucky Derby. Their spirited collaboration resulted in the now-legendary Gonzo Journalism, which would document the civil rights movement, the Nixon years & Watergate debacle, and the many bizarre & great events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. Not only did Steadman survive humiliation, gunplay, & hallucinatory despair through these affiliatory decades, he decided to include as his memoir's epigraph a remark of Thompson's: 'Don't write, Ralph. You'll bring shame on your family.' Illus. 396p.

    "Virtually Human explores what the not-too-distant future will look like when cyberconsciousness--simulation of the human brain via software and computer technology--becomes part of our daily lives. Meet Bina48, the world's most sentient robot, commissioned by Martine Rothblatt and created by Hanson Robotics. Bina48 is a nascent Mindclone of Martine's wife that can engage in conversation, answer questions, and even have spontaneous thoughts that are derived from multimedia data in a Mindfile created by the real Bina. If you're active on Twitter or Facebook, share photos through Instagram, or blogging regularly, you're already on your way to creating a Mindfile--a digital database of your thoughts, memories, feelings, and opinions that is essentially a back-up copy of your mind. Soon, this Mindfile can be made conscious with special software--Mindware--that mimics the way human brains organize information, create emotions and achieve self-awareness. This may sound like science-fiction, but the nascent technology already exists. Thousands of software engineers across the globe are working to create cyberconsciousness based on human consciousness and the Obama administration recently announced plans to invest in a decade-long Brain Activity Map project. Virtually Human is the only book to examine the ethical issues relating to cyberconsciousness and Rothblatt, with a Ph.D. in medical ethics, is uniquely qualified to lead the dialogue"--
