    In Part 1, the author reflected on the trouble IC had when encountering a submission that was substantially similar to another submission received elsewhere - a definite no-no. The author described some tools for detecting self-plagiarism and considered a possible way to get authors to make submitted works available alongside those already published, so that we could more easily detect overlapping...

    Social bookmarking services have recently gained popularity among Web users. Whereas numerous studies provide a historical account of tagging systems, the authors use their analysis of a domain-specific social bookmarking service called CiteULike to reflect on two metrics for evaluating tagging behavior: tag growth and tag reuse. They examine the relationship between these two metrics and articula... View full abstract»

    The widespread use of centrally controlled, externally run Web proxy services has several potential security issues related to privacy and deception, intranet information disclosure, and the creation of a single point of failure for widespread attacks. The author evaluates the security implications of such a Web proxy service from the viewpoints of users, organizations, and content providers. The ... View full abstract»

    Web services are important for creating distributed applications on the Web. In fact, they're a key enabler for service-oriented architectures that focus on service reuse and interoperability. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has recently finished work on two important standards for describing Web services the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) 2.0 and Semantic Annotations for WSDL and XM...

    Distributed computing has lagged behind the productivity revolution that has transformed the desktop in recent years. Programmers still generally treat the Web as a separate technology space and develop network applications using low-level message-passing primitives or unreliable Web services method invocations. Live distributed objects are designed to offer developers a scalable multicast infrast... View full abstract»

    In this installation of architectural perspectives, we describe an extension of a menu-based natural language interface (MBNLI) to support geospatial queries. Our extension makes it easier for application analysts and even inexperienced users to phrase complex queries without knowing the relational database query language SQL, database schemas (table structures), spatial operators, or spatial inde...

    Services based on the representational state transfer (REST) paradigm, a lightweight implementation of a service-oriented architecture, have found even greater success than their heavyweight siblings, which are based on the Web Services Description Language (WSDL.) and SOAP. By using XML-based messaging, RESTful services can bring together discrete data from different services to create meaningful... View full abstract»

    Antitrust questions put a useful spotlight on the privacy issues of online profiling by those who sell advertising on the Web. These questions apply not just to Google but to any site that uses personal information and behavior data to develop and use individual users' profiles. But simply assuring advertisers a fair marketplace won't be sufficient to guarantee user privacy. We know that many user... View full abstract»
