    WikiLeaks has started a new wave in information disseminated to the public. The momentum for a new era of street-level information disclosure of sensitive government information appears to be building quickly worldwide. Hardly had US legislators introduced a bill to stifle entities such as WikiLeaks when two explosive geopolitical situations emerged, thanks at least partly to network-enabled leaks...

    Websites that provide a high level of data quality should logically be more visible for search engines. However, search engines base their results on methods such as Web hyperlink structure analysis and ignore data quality. The authors evaluate data quality in a group of 88 Web portals in three different domains and compare the results with the sites' positions in a visibility ranking. Looking at ...

    As cloud computing becomes increasingly popular among enterprises, developers, and organizations, it's time to consider the practical problem: how do you choose from the growing number of providers? To help users make this decision, researchers first determined the basic types of services that providers offer. They then devised a set of metrics related to application performance in a cloud and cre... View full abstract»

    The average US consumer watches TV for almost five hours a day. While the majority of viewed content is still broadcast TV programming, the share of the time-shifted content is on the rise. One-third of US viewers currently use a digital video recorder like device, but trends indicate that more consumers are migrating to the Web to watch their favorite shows and movies. Increasingly, the Web is co... View full abstract»

    Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications are gaining more prominence in wireless communication. However, the current systems are optimized more for human-to-human (H2H) than M2M communications. Therefore it's important that wireless technologies evolve and develop competitive capabilities to efficiently support M2M communications. This article presents a snapshot of the progress made in developing ... View full abstract»

    The Internet's next evolution will require the current Internet (which concentrates on information access) to combine with an Internet of Things. Consequently, Web services that operate on information will need to seamlessly interoperate with services, and perhaps robotic capabilities, which interact with physical objects. While the paradigm known as service-oriented computing has adopted standard... View full abstract»

    Erlang is best known for its strong support for concurrency, fault tolerance, and reliability. An important basis for these desirable characteristics is Erlang's process support: an Erlang runtime can easily support hundreds of thousands of very lightweight processes within a single operating system process. Understanding how Erlang Web servers typically use processes for dispatching requests to a... View full abstract»

    To make Web services recommend the peers with whom they would like to collaborate in case of compositions, recommend the peers that can substitute for them in case of failure, and be aware of the peers that compete against them in case of selection, weaving social computing elements into service-oriented computing principles is required. We discuss how this weaving takes place. View full abstract»
