    Book Description

    Thomas J Watson Sr’s motto for IBM was THINK, and for more than a century, that one little word worked overtime. In Making the World Work Better: The Ideas That Shaped a Century and a Company, journalists Kevin Maney, Steve Hamm, and Jeffrey M. O’Brien mark the Centennial of IBM’s founding by examining how IBM has distinctly contributed to the evolution of technology and the modern corporation over the past 100 years.

    The authors offer a fresh analysis through interviews of many key figures, chronicling the Nobel Prize-winning work of the company’s research laboratories and uncovering rich archival material, including hundreds of vintage photographs and drawings. The book recounts the company’s missteps, as well as its successes. It captures moments of high drama – from the bet-the-business gamble on the legendary System/360 in the 1960s to the turnaround from the company’s near-death experience in the early 1990s.

    The authors have shaped a narrative of discoveries, struggles, individual insights and lasting impact on technology, business and society. Taken together, their essays reveal a distinctive mindset and organizational culture, animated by a deeply held commitment to the hard work of progress. IBM engineers and scientists invented many of the building blocks of modern information technology, including the memory chip, the disk drive, the scanning tunneling microscope (essential to nanotechnology) and even new fields of mathematics. IBM brought the punch-card tabulator, the mainframe and the personal computer into the mainstream of business and modern life. IBM was the first large American company to pay all employees salaries rather than hourly wages, an early champion of hiring women and minorities and a pioneer of new approaches to doing business–with its model of the globally integrated enterprise. And it has had a lasting impact on the course of society from enabling the US Social Security System, to the space program, to airline reservations, modern banking and retail, to many of the ways our world today works.

    The lessons for all businesses – indeed, all institutions – are powerful: To survive and succeed over a long period, you have to anticipate change and to be willing and able to continually transform. But while change happens, progress is deliberate. IBM – deliberately led by a pioneering culture and grounded in a set of core ideas – came into being, grew, thrived, nearly died, transformed itself… and is now charting a new path forward for its second century toward a perhaps surprising future on a planetary scale.

    Review
    “IBM doesn’t just THINK, it thinks big. The story of these big ideas illustrates how 100 years of innovation have shaped the way we live and work today.”
    –Kenneth Chenault, Chairman and CEO, American Express

    “Making the World Work Better convincingly documents IBM’s enormous impact on business and the world. Its history provides vital lessons for organizations of all sizes, and IBM’s future promises to continue to innovate the way we work, and even think.”
    –Henry Chesbrough, Executive Director, Center for Open Innovation, Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley

    “The history of every great, enduring company includes a triumphant struggle to remain relevant in the marketplace without abandoning a core purpose and values. At 100, IBM is one of a handful of organizations with so much to teach us about this unique journey.”
    –Howard Schultz, Chairman, President and CEO, Starbucks

    “Innovation, resilience, and great leadership are the key ingredients of the IBM story. Making the World Work Better tells that story exceptionally well. Ultimately, it reveals that IBM is not simply a technology company; it is a company of ideas and the future those ideas have created.”
    –John Hollar, President and CEO, Computer History Museum

    The Trading World of Asia and the English East India Company: 1660-1760 By K. N. Chaudhuri
    Publisher: C U P 2006 | 652 Pages | ISBN: 0521031591 , 0521217164 | PDF | 4 MB



    The main contribution of the work is to offer a comprehensive history of the English East India Company during the century 1660-1760. It also examines the commercial economy of the Asian countries in which the Company traded and its political relations with Asian princes. Finally, it is a study of business and economic decision-making under pre-modern conditions. The book is based on an extensive analysis of the quantitative and qualitative material available in the Company's archives. The data-processing of the quantitative evidence and its subsequent statistical analysis was carried out on a computer, and the book contains comprehensive tables on the volume and value of the Company's trade, prices of commercial goods, and on monetary and financial history. The extensive scope of the book and its consideration not only of the Company but of the economies in which it operated make it essential reading for all concerned with the economic history of the period, both of Europe and Asia. The techniques used in analysing the original data and their theoretical framework make it of methodological interest to economic historians.

    CSS for Print Designer

    CSS for Print Designer
    Publisher: New Riders Press | May 2011 | English | 176 pages | 11.7 MB
    COME CLOSE FOR DOWNLOAD smile

    Print designers work in images, shapes, and color: not code. The last thing many of them want to do is to translate their work into mono-spaced tags and numbers, divs and ids. But print designers can’t ignore the web and producing a design for the web has become a common part of a complete graphics package. And, knowing the basics of CSS is an essential ingredient for success.
    CSS for Print Designers presents web design concepts using metaphors that make sense to visual designers. Instead of using terms like semantics and structure, the book simplifies the language of web design using metaphors that print designers are comfortable with such as grouping like items or sculpting a layout from top to bottom or even how using sprites with CSS is like importing and cropping images in InDesign. The book uses efficient use of space with supporting graphics that demonstrate complex concepts such as nesting tags, clearing floats, and creating sprites.

    Who this book is for
    This book covers the basics of how to code Web sites by hand with a plain text editor. It’s deliberately short and written in a casual voice, without jargon or geek-speak.

    Who should read it

    A designer or visual thinker who’s ready to take the first step toward finally learning how to code by hand
    A designer who has tried to read other books or online tutorials about coding Web sites, but came away overwhelmed and frustrated
    A designer looking for a way to communicate better with coders when handing off projects to them
    An art or design student who wants to make Web sites but isn’t interested in a computer science degree
    A design professor who needs to teach students the latest Web standards and technology
