This booklet displays thirty years of expertise within the functions of machine know-how to literary examine and guideline and in consulting paintings in place of work automation and procedure integration. In that point i've got repeatedly chanced on myself within the place of getting to introduce scholars, either undergraduate and graduate, colleagues and consumers to the basics of machine and software program. through the years, as pcs grew to become either significant and typical in specialist lifestyles, i've been conscious of altering attitudes towards this know-how. From attitudes that ranged from the disdain of platonic dialecticians for mere know-how to intimidation bordering every now and then virtually on terror, humans have moved to include this new expertise into their body of reference ( humani nil a me alienum ). the improvement of the microprocessor and its next use for note processing marked one vital watershed. The frequent use of be aware processors made it much more likely than no longer that individuals could personal their very own pcs, a minimum of at paintings, and use them as a part of their work-a-day actions. yet whereas notice processing supplied a few elevated familiarity with desktops, it didn't lead so much indivi- als a lot past a data of the standard incantations had to regulate the MultiMate or Nota Bene or notice ideal golam and, due to unsatisfied adventure, a begrudging popularity of the necessity to make again up copies of significant documents.

Around this time, Stanley Rice proposed the development of a universal catalog of descriptive markup tags that could be adopted as generic, descriptive coding for texts to replace system and software specific coding. These descriptive tags would be a sort of programming language for which one-for-one substitution programs would be written to take as input texts containing generic markup codes and produce as output versions of the texts containing that substituted machine specific code for the generic markup 24 Computing in the Web Age codes.

Cyberspace is an expanding universe. That data expands to exceed the capacity of available disks is the second law of computer dynamics. ) Server-based networks developed in several directions. First, the number of servers and the distance between them expanded so that many large companies developed networks that were worldwide in their scope. Second, servers became more specialized as individual servers were dedicated to specific tasks like the From ENlAC to the World Wide Web to . . 6. Server network.

Finally, one would need application programs written to process the tagged text. 18 The channel and the parsing program together constitute a data interchange format that opens the possibility of a generalized data exchange between any two systems. To make the generalized data exchange channel operative, each system would need two additional programs: an export program that would convert its internal representation of text to the SGML compliant representation and an import program that would convert the SGML representation to internal format.
