Book description
Grassroots journalists are dismantling Big Media's monopoly on the news, transforming it from a lecture to a conversation. Not content to accept the news as reported, these readers-turned-reporters are publishing in real time to a worldwide audience via the Internet. The impact of their work is just beginning to be felt by professional journalists and the newsmakers they cover. In We the Media: Grassroots Journalism by the People, for the People, nationally known business and technology columnist Dan Gillmor tells the story of this emerging phenomenon, and sheds light on this deep shift in how we make and consume the news.

Review:
The introduction states that the nature of the Web is in flux. Those who take too strong and doctrinaire a stance on the character of the Internet will be subject to failures in their attempts to do business there. In addition, the author states his opinion, based on the research conducted for the book, that attempts to apply regulation to the net should be sparing. Part one deals with copyright. Chapter one reviews the past history of copyright legislation and purposes, and also the recent case of Napster. (The book was completed before the Napster case concluded.) "DVD Jon" and the DeCSS case is the topic of chapter two. The author's experiences with the publishing and sale of special reports forms the basis for an examination of ...

Review:
The preface stresses that this book is neither about how to attack a Web site, nor how to develop one, but, rather, how to test. Chapter one points out that the Web is a different environment, in terms of software security, because we have desktop machines, not centrally administered, talking to everyone (with much of the traffic being commercial in nature). The authors even point out that issues of error-handling, performance, and ease-of-use all contribute to increased levels of vulnerability. Various attacks designed to obtain information about Web applications, structure, and functions are described in chapter two. For client-side scripting, chapter three notes, any validation done on the client should be untrusted and re- validate... Rest of this review on the detail page

Book description
Web site design has grown up. Unlike the old days, when designers cobbled together chunky HTML, bandwidth-hogging graphics, and a prayer to make their sites look good, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) now lets your inner designer come out and play. But CSS isn't just a tool to pretty up your site; it's a reliable method for handling all kinds of presentation-from fonts and colors to page layout. CSS: The Missing Manual clearly explains this powerful design language and how you can use it to build sparklingly new Web sites or refurbish old sites that are ready for an upgrade. Like their counterparts in print page-layout programs, style sheets allow designers to apply typographic styles, graphic enhancements, and precise layout instructions to el...
