102 minutes : the untold story of the fight to survive inside the Twin Towers by Jim Dwyer( Book )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 3,531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the millions of words written about September 11, 2001, most were told from the outside looking in. "New York Times" reporters Dwyer and Flynn have taken the opposite and far more revealing-approach, capturing the little-known stories of the nearly 12,000 ordinary people who took extraordinary steps to save themselves and others. They tell the dramatic and moving account of the struggle for life inside the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, when every minute counted. At 8:46 AM on September 11, 2001, 14,000 people were inside the twin towers -- reading e-mails, making trades, eating croissants at Windows on the World. Over the next 102 minutes, each would become part of a drama for the ages, one witnessed only by the people who lived it -- until now. New York Times reporters Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn rely on hundreds of interviews; thousands of pages of oral histories; and phone, e-mail, and emergency radio transcripts. They cross a bridge of voices to go inside the infernos, seeing cataclysm and heroism, one person at a time, to tell the affecting, authoritative saga of the men and women -- the 12,000 who escaped and the 2,749 who perished -- who made 102 minutes count as never before

"The true story of a revolutionary-but-doomed Silicon Valley start-up, by a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter. Their idea was simple. Four NYU undergrads wanted to build a social network that would allow users to control their personal data, instead of surrendering it to big businesses like Facebook. They called it "Diaspora." In days, they raised $200,000, and reporters, venture capitalists, and the digital community's most legendary figures were soon monitoring their progress. Max dreamed of being a CEO. Ilya was the idealist. Dan coded like a pro, and Rafi tried to keep them all on track. But as the months passed and the money ran out, the Diaspora Four fell victim to errors, bad decisions, and their own hubris. In November of 2011, Ilya committed suicide. Diaspora has been tech news since day one, but the story reaches far beyond Silicon Valley to the now urgent issues about the future of the Internet. With the cooperation of the surviving partners, New York Times bestselling author Jim Dwyer tells a riveting story of four ambitious and naive young men who tried to re-bottle the genie of personal privacy-and paid the ultimate price"--

Actual innocence : when justice goes wrong and how to make it right by Jim Dwyer( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A nightmare from a thousand B-movies: a horrible crime is committed in your neighborhood, and the police knock at your door. A witness swears you are the perpetrator; you have no alibi, and no one believes your protestations of innocence. You're convicted sentenced to hard time in maximum security, or even death row, where you await the executioner's needle." "Tragically, this is no movie script but reality for hundreds of American citizens. But science and a group of incredibly dedicated crusaders are working to repair the damage." "In the last ten years, DNA testing has uncovered stone-cold proof that sixty-five completely innocent people have been sent to prison and death row. But even in cases where there is physical evidence, the criminal justice system frees prisoners only after a torturous legal process. Incredibly, according to many trial judges, "actual innocence" is not grounds for release from prison." "At the Innocence Project, Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld have helped to free thirty-seven wrongly convicted people, and have taken up the cause of hundreds more. Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Jim Dwyer has been covering innocence cases for a decade. In Actual Innocence, Scheck, Neufeld, and Dwyer relate the harrowing stories of ten innocent men - convicted by sloppy police work, corrupt prosecutors, jailhouse snitches, mistaken eyewitnesses, and other all-too-common flaws of the trial system - and tell of the heroic efforts to free them."--Jacket

"Four NYU undergrads wanted to build a social network that would allow users to control what they shared about themselves. They were hoping to raised 10k in 30 days and their project was called Diaspora. Their 2010 Kickstarter campaign ended the first day with three backers. They raised 20 times their goal and had support from around the world. But as the months wore on and the money wore out, they couldn't get there--coding failures, bad business decisions, over-reach and under-organization, and the inevitable conflicts of personality and goals. And when one of the four committed suicide in the fall of 2011, they found out how much they had all been on their own all along"-- $$c Provided by publisher
