Flame Wars: The Discourse of Cyberculture by Mark Dery

By Mark Dery

"Flame Wars," the verbal firefights that occur among disembodied fighters on digital bulletin forums, remind us that our interplay with the area is more and more mediated by way of desktops. Bit by means of electronic bit we're being "Borged," as devotees of Star Trek: the following Generation might have it—transformed into cyborgian hybrids of know-how and biology via our ever extra common interplay with machines, or with each other via technological interfaces.
The subcultural practices of the "incurably informed," to borrow the cyberpunk novelist Pat Cadigan’s coinage, provide a precognitive glimpse of mainstream tradition within the close to destiny, while many folks can be part-time citizens in digital groups. but, because the essays during this improved version of a distinct factor of the South Atlantic Quarterly be sure, there's extra to fringe machine tradition than our on-line world. inside of those pages, readers will come upon flame warriors; new age mutant ninja hackers; technopagans for whom the pc is an occult engine; and William Gibson’s "Agrippa," a quick tale on software program which may purely be learn as soon as since it gobbles itself up once the final web page is reached. the following, too, is woman El, an African American cleansing lady reincarnated as an omnipotent cyborg; devotees of online swinging, or "compu-sex"; the teleoperated weaponry and amok robots of the mechanical functionality artwork crew, Survival examine Laboratories; an interview with Samuel Delany, and more.
Rallying round Fredric Jameson’s demand a cognitive cartography that "seeks to endow the person topic with a few new heightened feel of position within the worldwide system," the members to Flame Wars have sketched a nook of that map, an overview for a wiring diagram of a terminally stressed world.

Spectral Analysis of Signals - The Missing Data Case by Yanwei Wang

By Yanwei Wang

Spectral estimation is critical in lots of fields together with astronomy, meteorology, seismology, communications, economics, speech research, clinical imaging, radar, and underwater acoustics. such a lot current spectral estimation algorithms are devised for uniformly sampled complete-data sequences. despite the fact that, the spectral estimation for info sequences with lacking samples is usually very important in a variety of applications.
In this booklet, the authors current the lately built nonparametric adaptive filtering dependent algorithms for the missing-data case, particularly gapped-data APES (GAPES) and the extra basic missing-data APES (MAPES).
