Internet – Ubiquitousness – its ability and inability

I really have to appreciate this person for what he is doing and then of course to what he said –

“can’t hammer a nail over the internet, you cannot be butcher of the internet, you cannot be barber over the internet, you cannot be bike mechanic over the internet, and it is something that can never be replaced..”

Joe of 718 cyclery shop (http://www.718c.com/)

These words have hit a cord which I keep referring to every time about business on Internet. They are not really game changers unless they would have been had internet wasn’t around. The idea to great business still lies in its core strategy and internet is very well the enabler – one of the greatest ever invented!

REST/Linked Data

It wasn’t hard to think about RESTful concepts when you hear Tim talking about linked data…

and a quick search and bang .. people are already talking about it here and here. The first link is exactly in lines of what I thought – huh isn’t he talking about REST? . Then the second link attempts a nose dive into conceptual paradigm.

twt prt#7 Brief history of ProtocolsNCP, TCP, TCP/IP
Network Communication Protocol(NCP) was deployed on December of 1970. Some 15 institutes in United States of America (including NASA, Stanford Research Institute, Harvard, UCLA etc) brought themselves together. NCP was the connection-oriented big brother of our generation’s Transmission Control Protocol(TCP). TCP does maintain connection context but lets Internet Protocol (IP), a connection-less protocol, to work on sending the message across. TCP was the refined protocol to ensure that data delivery is guaranteed – reliability, acceptable transmission octets size between sender and receiver – flow control, connection sharing across multiple processes by using ports – multiplexing, date delivery precedence and security.

the gurus of web ..

I have been almost unaware of group of individuals who had been running this entire show from the corner of the world independent of each other… Ted Nelson , Leonard Kleinrock, Tim Berners Lee and their colleagues … one had proposed hyperlinked document system, one’s work lead to first internet and then another revolutionized an idea (the hypertext) and the infrastructure (The Internet) in a form of a language called HTML .. roughly in a same order ..

The person Ted Nelson put up an idea of hypermedia. He explained. The words aren’t just composite characters. Every single word is composition of context, ideas and actions. All this information should be easily accessible right on that word. This is what Ted Nelson introduced in his paper – “Computers, Creativity, and the Nature of the Written Word”.

The person Mr. Kleinrock established and ushered an idea into an eco-system we call Internet today. He along with his colleagues established first link between UCLA and SRI on 29th Oct 1969. The first ever characters sent over a system, which would eventually grow up to Internet, was “LO”. Read full story here. Also, I will follow up with details on lecture I attended from Leonard Kleinrock.

The person Tim made WWW to say alright lets sit down and understand how are we talking to each other. Are we making sense? Are we losing what others are trying to convey? Are we handling this interconnected flow of information as yet another file and folders in a dormant closet? His first browser was WorldWideWeb. It was a browser cum editor. His intention was to enable more active participation of individuals on internet but in a single world wide language called HTML.

There is definitely more to come on this space.. I am excited to learn more about them and our internet.
