    Today, important information is scattered in so many places, formats, and media, that getting the right information at the right time and place is an extremely difficult task. Developing a single software product, for example, includes the creation of documents ranging from the requirements specification and project schedules to marketing presentations, multimedia tutorials, and more. Each documen... View full abstract»

    Internet service providers (ISPs) offering dial-up access and purveyors of enterprise networks supporting telecommuters face some difficult challenges. Ever-increasing residential dialup subscribers demand available modem (or ISDN) ports, or threaten to take their business elsewhere. To meet this demand, ISPs (dial providers) are deploying a large number of-complex, port-dense network access serve... View full abstract»

    Despite the usual hum around emerging technologies like XML, MP3, and streaming video, the real workhorse of the Internet is still SMTP. And of course, riding that pony is e-mail, which has changed our lives perhaps even more profoundly, albeit less visibly, than the younger and more glitzy HTTP. Unfortunately, e-mail is often wielded more like a sword than a scalpel. As network and Web administra... View full abstract»

    The public telephone network (PTN) and Internet are two large and complex networked information systems (NISs). The PTN and the Internet shed light on the technical problems faced by the developers and operators of other NISs. In some ways, the two networks are very similar. No single entity owns, manages, or can even have a complete picture of either. Both networks involve large numbers of subsys... View full abstract»

    Resolving “renowned programming pioneer” to “David Wheeler” may seem little enough like resolving w3.org to 18.29.0.27; the former process weighs human relationships, history, and judgment, while the latter mechanically queries a Domain Name System (DNS) database. Dig deeper, though, and every decision to name something turns out to be a trust decision. Names are resolvable... View full abstract»

    The paper discusses the necessary capabilities of knowledge networks: categorizing (the ability to classify Web pages and other unstructured data automatically); hyperlinking (the ability to add to each item of information appropriate pointers to other relevant items of information); alerting (the automatic notification of users and agents to new information that might be of interest to them); and...
