eGirls eCitizens Excerpt :

eGirls, eCitizens is a landmark work that explores the many forces that shape girls’ and young women’s experiences of privacy, identity, and equality in our digitally networked society. Drawing on the multi-disciplinary expertise of a remarkable team of leading Canadian and international scholars, as well as Canada’s foremost digital literacy organization, MediaSmarts, this collection presents the complex realities of digitized communications for girls and young women as revealed through the findings of The eGirls Project (www.egirlsproject.ca) and other important research initiatives. Aimed at moving dialogues on scholarship and policy around girls and technology away from established binaries of good vs bad, or risk vs opportunity, these seminal contributions explore the interplay of factors that shape online environments characterized by a gendered gaze and too often punctuated by sexualized violence. Perhaps most importantly, this collection offers first-hand perspectives collected from girls and young women themselves, providing a unique window on what it is to be a girl in today’s digitized society.

Metagaming Excerpt :

The greatest trick the videogame industry ever pulled was convincing the world that videogames were games rather than a medium for making metagames. Elegantly defined as “games about games,” metagames implicate a diverse range of practices that stray outside the boundaries and bend the rules: from technical glitches and forbidden strategies to Renaissance painting, algorithmic trading, professional sports, and the War on Terror. In Metagaming, Stephanie Boluk and Patrick LeMieux demonstrate how games always extend beyond the screen, and how modders, mappers, streamers, spectators, analysts, and artists are changing the way we play. Metagaming uncovers these alternative histories of play by exploring the strange experiences and unexpected effects that emerge in, on, around, and through videogames. Players puzzle through the problems of perspectival rendering in Portal, perform clandestine acts of electronic espionage in EVE Online, compete and commentate in Korean StarCraft, and speedrun The Legend of Zelda in record times (with or without the use of vision). Companies like Valve attempt to capture the metagame through international e-sports and online marketplaces while the corporate history of Super Mario Bros. is undermined by the endless levels of Infinite Mario, the frustrating pranks of Asshole Mario, and even Super Mario Clouds, a ROM hack exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art. One of the only books to include original software alongside each chapter, Metagaming transforms videogames from packaged products into instruments, equipment, tools, and toys for intervening in the sensory and political economies of everyday life. And although videogames conflate the creativity, criticality, and craft of play with the act of consumption, we don’t simply play videogames—we make metagames.

The Rose Excerpt :

This is a book about someone going through a process of growth. It is a group of poems that highlight what growth is. These poems span over 20 years starting as early as 1993. You see a girl's growing pains as she starts out with dating and ends with falling in love. It highlights what we know before we know what will happen to us. The rose talks about what it is like to be thrown away and then be put back together again, talking of a rebirth, and transitioning from young girl to adulthood and the people that are affected in the process. These are the people that affect us and the ones we affect. In the book she knew she would meet him before she met him. She wrote about and remembered him before he came to her life. Sometimes we know things to be a lot deeper than what they appear to be. It is a spiritual awakening. This is the time of the shift. We chose to incarnate here during a great shift. We are all shifting into higher states of being. We will begin to vibrate to higher levels as we become more crystalline. Sometimes we just have to fumble and find our way to where we should be a few times. It is normal to stumble and fall as we find our way. This, I hope should make it ok to feel the way we do.

After You Have Suffered a While Excerpt :

Well, Jesus suffered. My suffering began as a child and continued into my adulthood. Well, God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son. Jesus suffered while going to the cross, and on the cross now He sits on the throne. I suffered on into adulthood, and afterward, yet I still live, so why not tell my story? I want others to know God is a forgiving god, and all they have to do is repent and depart from their evil and wicked ways. Yes, you can tell what you endured and how God brought you through it. I’m blessed to have made it by the grace and mercy of God. Jesus suffered, and I and others have suffered also. Some didn’t live to tell their story, and some couldn’t read or write, some could not afford it, and some didn’t have the courage. I’m glad gave me the courage. I believe in Him for He cannot lie. God is love, and I plan to live and love forevermore.
