    P2P file-sharing networks such as Kazaa, eDonkey, and Limewire boast millions of users. Because of scalability concerns and legal issues, such networks are moving away from the semicentralized approach that Napster typifies toward more scalable and anonymous decentralized P2P architectures. Because they lack any central authority, these networks provide a new, interesting context for the expressio... View full abstract»

    Computer science curricula must represent today’s computing reality by focusing on parallel and distributed computing (rather than single-processor computing). Educators should incorporate elements of parallel and distributed computing into their courses from the beginning to help students consider what multiprocessor machines and Internet resources they can use to solve computational problem...
