Part two of a three-part series in which Bob Cringely, a self-proclaimed nerd and industry gossip columnist, leads viewers in an examination of the exciting industry known as the Internet.

Following shortly after a number of other companies, including Sun Systems, Novell, Microsoft, and Cisco entered the picture, and a volatile competitive market was created
Nerds 2.0.1 : a brief history of the Internet( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A three part series examining the ins and outs of one of the most volatile industries: the Internet. This first episode examines how the seeds of the Internet were planted by Sputnik. In a reaction to Russia's leap ahead in technology, the Pentagon developed a new agency called ARPA. ARPAnet was created to connect computer researchers at universities across the nation. In nine months flat, the technology was invented, built and installed
Nerds 2.0.1 : a brief history of the Internet( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A three part series examining the ins and outs of one of the most volatile industries: the Internet. In this final episode we visit Excite, a typical Silicon Valley entrepreneurial adventure. Then we unlock the making of the World Wide Web, created by Tim Berners-Lee in Geneva, who made "http://www" the star it is today. While the World Wide Web was making the Internet available to more people, it still wasn't a friendly experience. Netscape and Microsoft changed all that so the Internet has become a 24-hour a day medium where people can do business, chat and go shopping
Priming cooperation in social dilemma games by Michalis Drouvelis( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on public goods mainly focuses its attention on the ability of incentives, beliefs and group structure to affect behaviour in social dilemma interactions. This paper investigates the pure effects of a rather subtle mechanism on social preferences in a one-shot linear public good game. Using priming techniques from social psychology, we activate the concept of cooperation and explore the extent to which this intervention brings about changes in people's voluntary contributions to the public good and self-reported emotional responses. Our findings suggest that priming cooperation increases contribution levels, controlling for subjects' gender. Our priming effect is much stronger for females than for males. This difference can be explained by a shift in subjects' beliefs about contributions. We also find a significant impact of priming on mean positive emotional responses. -- Priming ; contributions ; beliefs ; emotional responses ; public goods experiments

The host with the most? the effects of the Olympic Games on happiness by Paul Dolan( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We show that hosting the Olympic Games in 2012 had a positive impact on the life satisfaction and happiness of Londoners during the Games, compared to residents of Paris and Berlin. Notwithstanding issues of causal inference, the magnitude of the effects is equivalent to moving from the bottom to the fourth income decile. But they do not last very long: the effects are gone within a year. These conclusions are based on a novel panel survey of 26,000 individuals who were interviewed during the summers of 2011, 2012, and 2013, i.e. before, during, and after the event. The results are robust to selection into the survey and to the number of medals won
Using big data to estimate consumer surplus the case of Uber by Peter Cohen( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Estimating consumer surplus is challenging because it requires identification of the entire demand curve. We rely on Uber's "surge" pricing algorithm and the richness of its individual level data to first estimate demand elasticities at several points along the demand curve. We then use these elasticity estimates to estimate consumer surplus. Using almost 50 million individual-level observations and a regression discontinuity design, we estimate that in 2015 the UberX service generated about $2.9 billion in consumer surplus in the four U.S. cities included in our analysis. For each dollar spent by consumers, about $1.60 of consumer surplus is generated. Back-of-the-envelope calculations suggest that the overall consumer surplus generated by the UberX service in the United States in 2015 was $6.8 billion
A new approach to an age-old problem solving externalities by incenting workers directly by Greer K Gosnell( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding motivations in the workplace remains of utmost import as economies around the world rely on increases in labor productivity to foster sustainable economic growth. This study makes use of a unique opportunity to “look under the hood” of an organization that critically relies on worker effort and performance. By partnering with Virgin Atlantic Airways on a field experiment that includes over 40,000 unique flights covering an eight-month period, we explore how information and incentives affect captains' performance. Making use of more than 110,000 captain-level observations, we find that our set of treatments -- which include performance information, personal targets, and prosocial incentives -- induces captains to improve efficiency in all three key flight areas: pre-flight, in-flight, and post-flight. We estimate that our treatments saved between 266,000-704,000 kg of fuel for the airline over the eight-month experimental period. These savings led to between 838,000-2.22 million kg of CO2 abated at a marginal abatement cost of negative $250 per ton of CO2 (i.e. a $250 savings per ton abated) over the eight-month experimental period. Methodologically, our approach highlights the potential usefulness of moving beyond an experimental design that focuses on short-run substitution effects, and it also suggests a new way to combat firm-level externalities: target workers rather than the firm as a whole
