Data Smog: Surviving the Information Glut Revised and Updated Edition

Media pupil ( and net 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 develop into more and more simplistic.

Example text

Precedence The external events are as follows: spontaneous impulse (Spontaneously), reception of a message (Receiving), and alarm clock ring (When). Different types of external events can occur simultaneously; for example, the alarm clock might ring at the same time a message arrives. The simultaneous events will be processed sequentially. To determine the order in which they will be processed, we will use the following precedence between external events: Spontaneously > When > Receiving; that is, the spontaneous impulse takes precedence over the alarm clock, which has precedence over the arrival of a message.

10 SUMMARY OF DEFINITIONS Distributed Environment: Collection of communicating computational entities. Communication: Transmission of message. Message: Bounded sequence of bits. Entity’s Capability: Local processing, local storage, access to a local clock, and communication. Entity’s Status Register: At any time an entity status register has a value from a predefined set of status values. External Events: Arrival of a message, alarm clock ring, and spontaneous impulse. Entity’s Behavior: Entities react to external events.

Jt be the positions in decreasing order; that is, ji > ji+1 . Consider now the nodes v0 , v1 , v2 , . . , vt , where v0 = x, and the name of vi differs from the name of vi+1 only in the ji+1 -th position. Thus, there is a link labeled ji+1 connecting vi to vi+1 , and clearly vt = y. But this means that v0 , v1 , v2 , . . , vt is a path from x to y, and the sequence of labels on this path is j1 , j2 , . . , jt , which is decreasing. , it contains all the nodes of) Hk , regardless of x. In other words, within finite time, every entity will have the information.
