The end of the world is the weirdest time to come of age. Welcome to the end of the world. One minute, people are going about their lives, and the next--not. In the wake of the inexplicable purge, only a handful of young misfits remains. When it all went down, "Wizard of Odd" Dev Brinkman was seeking shelter from the taunts of his classmates. Goth girl Lucy Abernathy had lost her best friend and had no clue where to turn. And Twinkie-loving quarterback "Marcus" Haddad was learning why you never discuss politics and religion in polite company--or online. As if life when you're sixteen isn't confusing enough, throw in the challenges of postapocalyptic subsistence, a case of survivor's guilt turned up to seven billion, and the small task of rebuilding humankind... No one said doomsday would be a breeze. But for Dev, Lucy, and Marcus, the greatest hope--and greatest threat--will come when they find each other.

A story which will remind you of your friends and give the message of the future. Siddhartha is what we call him, the boy who dreamed of saving the world one day but when the day came, he lost everything. Almost everything except Madhava.The end was prophesied but watching it live is not in everyone's fortune. Seated on the cool sands of a beach, two friends debate on what is right and what is wrong. They watch their friends and family disappear in time. But that's the least they can do. Its then that Madhava comes up with a strange wish; to hear the history of his best friend. This is what we call as true friendship. Siddhar¬tha narrates his story, shares his memories with Madhava. But was he satisfied, no instead he wanted a longer and clear story and that's what his friend gave. Let's find what had happened or what will happen if we don't take a step forward against it......HAPPY READING..........
Geert Lovink interviews an international group of artists, critics, and theorists on aesthetic, cultural, and political aspects of new media. For Geert Lovink, interviews are imaginative texts that can help to create global, networked discourses not only among different professions but also among different cultures and social groups. Conducting interviews online, over a period of weeks or months, allows the participants to compose documents of depth and breadth, rather than simply snapshots of timely references.The interviews collected in this book are with artists, critics, and theorists who are intimately involved in building the content, interfaces, and architectures of new media. The topics discussed include digital aesthetics, sound art, navigating deep audio space, European media philosophy, the Internet in Eastern Europe, the mixing of old and new in India, critical media studies in the Asia-Pacific region, Japanese techno tribes, hybrid identities, the storage of social movements, theory of the virtual class, virtual and urban spaces, corporate takeover of the Internet, and the role of cyberspace in the rise of nongovernmental organizations. Interviewees included Norbert Bolz, Paulina Borsook, Luchezar Boyadjiev, Kuan-Hsing Chen, Cã¬(c)n Dan, Mike Davis, Mark Dery, Kodwo Eshun, Susan George, Boris Groys, Frank Hartmann, Michael Heim, Dietmar Kamper, Zina Kaye, Tom Keenan, Arthur Kroker, Bruno Latour, Marita Liulia, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Peter Lunenfeld, Lev Manovich, Mongrel, Edi Muka, Jonathan Peizer, Saskia Sassen, Herbert Schiller, Gayatri Spivak, Já(R) ̄s Sugá2¬ Ravi Sundaram, Toshiya Ueno, Tjebbe van Tijen, McKenzie Wark, Hartmut Winkler, and Slavoj Zizek.
It is inevitable that humankind will become extinct. Nowadays, the advance of technology has overtaken the human capacity to control the possible consequences of any kind of progress. Extinction is always multifactorial. Double-faced Janus Meerkater, a reborn Neanderthal and leading nanotechnologist, has created EMULATOR, an unexcelled thinking machine and technological singularity. Thus Murphy’s law and the Dürrenmatt principle are put in motion. Leo Lobeck the Trojan, Jason Stardust and Xixi Bruneau are fighting the technocalypse. Brain emulation in combination with wormhole physics could create an escape route for mankind. That way reality is broken and reveals itself as an illusion in the empirical dimensions of human experience. The world events turn out to be pure satire. In the end all human minds will be uploaded to EMULATOR and Friedrich Nietzsche, the great but unfortunately insane philosopher, will be God. “Perhaps we are all part of an experiment. Maybe to be human is just a test of what animate creatures would do given by nature limited intelligence and maximum ignorance.”

Freddie L. Sirmans former education is limited to a high school grad and one semester of college. But, he is a fairly well read neurotic survivor. He has one of the deepest and penetrating economical minds there is today. He knows the US and western Europe is doomed unless they privatize out of their welfare states. The welfare state has all but destroyed western civilization. The liberals and their welfare state have destroyed our culture and any capacity to barter as a last resort to survive. A lack of true survival struggle is the main causes of liberalism.
The culture of twenty-first century America revolves around narcissistic death, violence, and visions of doom. Foster explores this culture of the apocalypse, from hoarding and gluttony to visions of the post-apocalyptic world.
