In this sixtieth anniversary of the publication of Shannonpsilas ldquoA Mathematical Theory of Communicationsrdquo, this paper presents two relatively recent developments that are based on the fundamentals presented and defined by Shannon. Briefly and simply stated, they are, advanced forms of compression (also referred to as ldquoSequence Reductionrdquo or ldquoBit Pollution Reductionrdquo) and ldquonetwork protection through entropy related monitoringrdquo. Both are based on Information Theory concepts/results originally defined and analyzed by Shannon.
