ACCESSIBLE

it to

unnatural

  24. The USA came up with 2 responses…
  25. We all know this happened:
  26. 11 years before that, this happened:
  27. in 1958 Eisenhower established the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) to ensure the US maintained a technological edge over Russia. One of ARPA’s areas of focus was Computer Science
  28. [Joseph Carl Robnett Licklider - “Lick” - Predicted interactive computing, The Internet, The Web, etc In 1962 MIT PHD J.C.R. Licklider was commissioned by ARPA to outline: “...A globally connected computer network which enables anyone to access data from anywhere…” This is 1st description of computers not only as calculating machines, but also as: “...joyful tools, serving to inspire creativity, and provide gateways to a vast world of information…”
  29. [Dr. Danny Cohen - Pioneered visual realtime interactive flight and radar simulation] “… In the Beginning, ARPA created the ARPANET. And the ARPANET was without form and void. And darkness was upon the deep. And the spirit of ARPA moved upon the face of the network and ARPA said, 'Let there be a protocol,' and there was a protocol. And ARPA saw that it was good. And ARPA said, 'Let there be more protocols,' and it was so. And ARPA saw that it was good. And ARPA said, 'Let there be more networks,' and it was so…"
  30. Contrary to popular Legend ARPANET was not conceived to survive this:
  31. “…ARPANET came out of our frustration that there were only a few powerful research computers in the country, and many researchers, who needed access to them, were separated from them geographically…” [Dr. Charles M. Herzfeld - Personally took the decision to authorize the creation of the ARPANET]
  32. Things were bad enough without worrying about bombs...
  33. 1965: “M1” Gordon E. Moore predicts the power of chips will double every 2 years. This growth rate pushes the Internet’s evolution.
  34. The first 4 ARPANET computers used different operating systems, forcing designers to come up with a common set of rules they all could follow. This was the Network Control Protocol (NCP). In 1983, ARPANET switched to the TRANSMISSION CONTROL PROTOCOL & INTERNET PROTOCOL SUITE TCP/IP …It’s used to this day
  35. What does this teach us?

  37. The Internet was DESIGNED TO MAKE INFORMATION ACCESSIBLE
  38. …so using it to restrict access to data is unnatural
  39. 2
  40. The Internet is enabled by WILLFUL adherence to PROTOCOLS
  41. …and working outside this framework is ill advised
  42. 3
  43. We’ve always had BUGS
  44. Major milestones before the World Wide Web:
  45. The 70’s & 80’s see computers and networks spreading from strictly academic and military applications to commercial and private ones too
  46. 1975: Telenet is established The first commercial Internet Anyone can access for a fee

  50. 1980: ARPANET crashes due to the 1st Virus
  51. 1983: The Birth of the Domain Name System - DNS
  52. What is DNS?
  53. The Domain Name System maps out the relation between the numerical addresses of host computers, and the names associated with them. Prior to its inception these were maintained locally on each machine, however the growth of the Internet soon made this impossible.
  54. …The DNS is basically this for the Internet
  55. DNS distributes the responsibility for assigning and mapping domain names by designating Name Servers for each domain. They’re assigned responsibility for their domains, and can assign responsibility for their sub-domains. Distribution makes DNS fault tolerant and avoids the need for any single central register to be continually consulted and updated
  56. The Web is Born
  57. In Aug 1990 Sir Tim Berners-Lee published a proposal to build a WorldWideWeb - “A web of hypertext documents to be viewed by browsers using a client–server architecture”
  58. 28 years after “Lick” wrote his memos… …2 months after he passed away
  59. By Christmas 1990 Berners-Lee using this machine had built everything needed for a working Web: The first Web Server, The first Web Browser, …and the first Web Pages
