2 Slide 2 Tomorrows Technology and You 8/e Chapter 9 The Evolving Internet © 2008 Prentice-Hall, Inc.

3 Slide 3 Tomorrows Technology and You 8/e Chapter 9 Objectives Explain how and why the Internet was created. Describe the technology that is at the heart of the Internet. Describe the technology that makes the Web work as a multimedia mass medium. Discuss the tools people use to build Web sites. © 2008 Prentice-Hall, Inc.

4 Slide 4 Tomorrows Technology and You 8/e Chapter 9 Objectives (continued) Discuss the trends that are changing the Internet and the way people use it.

Describe various ways that governments restrict access to the Internet. © 2008 Prentice-Hall, Inc.

5 Slide 5 Tomorrows Technology and You 8/e Chapter 9 ARPANET Pioneers Build a Reliable Network Out of Unreliable Parts The Advanced Research Projects Agency NETwork (ARPANET) is the predecessor to the Internet: Developed at the request of the Department of Defense by a team of visionary computer scientists Launched in 1969 Peer-to-peer networking philosophy and protocols were copied in other networks in the 1980s Disbanded in 1990, having fulfilled its research mission, but its technology spawned the Internet © 2008 Prentice-Hall, Inc.

6 Slide 6 Tomorrows Technology and You 8/e Chapter 9 Inside the Internet Counting Connections The Internet: an interconnected network of thousands of networks Links academic, research, government, and commercial institutions Connects computers to about every country in the world Growing too fast to measure its growth Internet is decentralized Internet doesnt have hard boundaries © 2008 Prentice-Hall, Inc.

7 Slide 7 Tomorrows Technology and You 8/e Chapter 9 Inside the Internet Internet Protocols Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, TCP/IP… At the heart of the Internet Allows cross-network communication TCP breaks messages into packets. Each packet has all the information needed to travel from network to network. Host systems called routers determine how to route transmissions. Packet-switching is flexible and robust. © 2008 Prentice-Hall, Inc.

8 Slide 8 Tomorrows Technology and You 8/e Chapter 9 Inside the Internet Internet Protocols IP is the address for the packets. Each Internet host computer has a unique IP address. Each address is comprised of four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as NextGeneration Internet will allow more addresses and multicasting. © 2008 Prentice-Hall, Inc.

9 Slide 9 Tomorrows Technology and You 8/e Chapter 9 Inside the Internet Internet Addresses The host is named using DNS (domain name system), which translates IP addresses into a string of names. Top-level domains include:.edu - educational sites.com - commercial sites.gov - government sites.mil - military sites.net - network administration sites.org - nonprofit organization sites © 2008 Prentice-Hall, Inc.

34 Slide 34 Tomorrows Technology and You 8/e Chapter 9 Lesson Summary The Internet is a network of networks that connects all kinds of computers around the globe and uses standard protocols to allow Internet communication to occur. No single organization owns or controls the Internet. You can connect to the Internet in several ways that provide different degrees of access to Internet services. Most Internet applications are based on the client/server model. © 2008 Prentice-Hall, Inc.

35 Slide 35 Tomorrows Technology and You 8/e Chapter 9 Lesson Summary (continued) The Web uses a set of protocols to make a variety of Internet services and multimedia documents available to users through a simple point-and-click interface. In addition to Web sites, a variety of applications are built on the protocols of the Internet and the Web. For example, people who use the Web depend on search engines to find the information they need. Peer-to-peer computing was popularized by music-sharing services, but its applications go beyond music sharing. © 2008 Prentice-Hall, Inc.

36 Slide 36 Tomorrows Technology and You 8/e Chapter 9 Lesson Summary (continued) Many businesses are exploring ways to apply P2P technology. Grid computing goes beyond P2P computing by enabling people to share processor power. As the Internet grows and changes, issues of privacy, security, censorship, criminal activity, universal access, and appropriate Net behavior are surfacing. © 2008 Prentice-Hall, Inc.
