We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Information

Internet

An internet group about The Internet.

The internet is both a telecommunication medium and a culture. We have embraced it because of its immediacy, its pervasiveness and its usefulness.

Even though for most of us its workings is equivalent to magic and it's enough to know that it's very 'complicated and technical,' it has become an intricate part of our life.

Let's talk about this.

The Internet

This is a partial portrait of the Internet. Imagine that at the tip of each branch there is one or multiple human brains operating and that each one of these terminals can be instantly connected to any other, anywhere.

If we could map this image to the surface of the Earth it would make it even more obvious that this network of networks is like a new organ that has been grafted onto the biosphere.

Partial map of the Internet based on the January 15, 2005 data found on opte.org. Each line is drawn between two nodes, representing two IP addresses. The length of the lines are indicative of the delay between those two nodes. This graph represents less than 30% of the Class C networks reachable by the data collection program in early 2005. Lines are color-coded according to their corresponding RFC 1918 allocation as follows:

Dark blue: net, ca, us
Green: com, org
Red: mil, gov, edu
Yellow: jp, cn, tw, au, de
Magenta: uk, it, pl, fr
Gold: br, kr, nl
White: unknown

I'll check in with Ning to see if somehow a message through that network would provide an IP address.

Sorry for being grouchy.   I wanted help from the administrators figuring this out - rather than being 'outcast.'

I shouldn't have posted the previous.

Working with Apple find it's interesting how little the technitian knew about time and the calender portion of the system.

None of that compost matters though.

That is a good point, Chris. Cell phone usage is also exploding exponenttially - according to some graphs internet usage in Kenya for example has increased from 3 to 40 from 2005 to 2013. I must be up at least t 70 now based on the trend line.

Sobre la evolución digital


Comment by Stephen on November 3, 2015 at 5:58am

Chris I'm constantly surprised that California of all places is as slow as it appears to be. I've noticed that most of your phone lines are overhead and not buried underground and I read somewhere that overhead cables are hard to convert to fibre optics. You can understand it in the more rural areas but from what ive seen even in your cities they are laid out above ground.
