“In a very real way, your personal computer can be a warehouse of private information about you. It can be as revealing to others as Orwell's telescreen was to Big Brother,” Schrage wrote of. Back in the early 80s, few people had personal computers in their homes. Personal computers were new and expensive, a total luxury item. The internet, although it did exist at that time, was limited to government and educational institutions, and just emerging on .
The first recorded description of the social interactions that could be enabled through networking was a series of memos written by J.C.R. Licklider of MIT in August discussing his “Galactic Network” concept. He envisioned a globally interconnected set of computers through which everyone could quickly access data and programs from any site. While traditional telecommunications networks have allowed us to cross barriers associated with time and distance, the new multimedia realm is allowing us to include vital physical cues in the information stream, introducing a physical reality into the world of electronic communications, goods, and services.

This book is a classic, having been available in a number of editions through the 80s and 90s, with the fourth (and last) from Much has changed in the world of communications since then, and parts of the book are obsolete now: In particular, OSI protocols (X, OSI Transport etc) are pretty much extinct now, with TCP/IP having taken by: Management information systems, of course, are still doing their jobs, but their function is now one among many others that feed information to people in business to help them manage.
It was with these early Internet connections that the computer truly began to evolve from a computational device to a communications device. InTim Berners-Lee developed a simpler way for researchers to share information over the network at CERN laboratories, a concept he called the World Wide Web.

Radar's ability to penetrate clouds and make 3-D measurements allowed scientists to generate the first complete high-resolution topographic map of the entire region.

In this report I have traced the history of computing in India from to I have identified four break points in the historical development, each breakpoint caused by changes in the political climate and consequent changes in the government policies on the development of Size: KB.Cryptography, the use of codes and ciphers to protect secrets, began thousands of years ago.
Until recent decades, it has been the story of what might be called classic cryptography — that is, of methods of encryption that use pen and paper, or perhaps simple mechanical aids.
In the early 20th century, the invention of complex mechanical and electromechanical machines, such as. David Weinberger, a senior researcher at Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, said, “The most obvious [difference of digital life] for many of us, I’m sure, is the lowering of the barrier to communication: I am in closer touch with my family – grown kids, siblings, in-laws, the whole group – because we can.
