Data Smog: Surviving the Information Glut Revised and Updated Edition

Media pupil ( and web fanatic ) David Shenk examines the troubling results of knowledge proliferation on bodies, our brains, our relations, and our tradition, then bargains strikingly down-to-earth insights for dealing with the deluge. With a skillful mix of own essay, firsthand reportage, and sharp research, Shenk illustrates the valuable paradox of our time: as our international will get extra complicated, our responses to it turn into more and more simplistic.

Example text

Each child wants to keep clean, but the temptation to play with mud is too great to resist. As a result, k of the children get mud on their foreheads. ” She then adds, “I am going to leave the room now, and I will return periodically; if you decide to confess, you must all come forward together when I am in the room. ” Each child in the room clearly understands that those with mud on their foreheads are “dead meat,” who will be punished no matter what. Obviously, the children do KNOWLEDGE 21 not want to confess if the foreheads are clean, and clearly, if the foreheads are dirty, they want to go forward so as to avoid their terrible punishment for those who do not confess.

The first question is as follows: can a child x find out whether his/her forehead is dirty or not ? She/he can see how many, say fx , of the other children are dirty; thus, the question is if x can determine whether k = fx or k = fx + 1. The second, more complex question is as follows: can all the children with mud on their foreheads find out at the same time so that they can go forward together ? In other words, can the exact value of k become common knowledge ? 6). IMPORTANT. When working in a submodel, all the restrictions defining the submodel are common knowledge to all entities (unless otherwise specified).

So, if x is the initiator, the ideal time complexity will be r(x) = Max {d(x, y) : y ∈ E}, which is called the eccentricity (or radius) of x. In other words, the total time depends on which entity is the initiator and 14 DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING ENVIRONMENTS thus cannot be known precisely beforehand. We can, however, determine exactly the ideal time complexity in the worst case. Since any entity could be the initiator, the ideal time complexity in the worst case will be d(G) = Max {r(x) : x ∈ E}, which is the diameter of G.
