By making programming languages less difficult to work with you increase the number of people writing programs and successively increase the number and variety of programs available.
In a previous article I described how, in order to have a true Semantic Web, we would need to have a user action to direct the program. I would like to examine some of the motivations for this point of view.
The original concept was for the system to display a number of images on a tabbed-page HTML layout. Each tab/page of images needed to be centered and allow a user to touch a thumbnail to bring up larger rendering of that image.
Most search engines do an adequate job at sorting out some of these FLUFF sites but they still somehow show up in search results. Maybe what we need in the search engine tools arsenal is a FLUFF filter.
When talking about the Semantic Web there are a few premises one must acknowledge. One premise is that any data exchange on the internet is originally initiated by a human. There is no information retrieval without a request for that information and that request can be directly tied to a human request for the information.
Twitter is fighting back against cyber-crime and malicious activity in its recent actions toward Tor users and Isis.
Coinciding with the cascading avalanche of information on the disaster of Flight MH17, there is an influx of malware, false stories, and spam, permeating the internet.
In computing , and life in general, we find ourselves often hearing new phrases that tend to evoke certain connotations. These Buzzwords are generally created for the benefit of marketing and brand recognition but can also be used to label campaigns or causes. The creation of Buzzwords have become so prolific that there are even games devoted to it.
According to the latest news reports an attack on one of Yahoo's Ad servers perpetuated a large scale malware infestation across user's computers of the popular search engine and the breech seems to point to flaws in the java code used on the servers.
Do you have a job, project, or position open for a programmer in the Memphis or Mid-South area? Maybe you have several open positions and each position has different requirements.
By observing Newton's law we can conclude that the efforts of the quantum dawn tests and the other security risk assessments undertaken across internet connected sites have been significant but have not yet matched the effort of the attackers.
Justin Carter - published content on the internet can echo forever and those listening may just misunderstand your message.
It may be time for the Government to take more of a role in protecting its citizens, businesses, and institutions, from attacks by cyber-criminals and terrorists.
Sign the petition for the creation of a Department of Defense agency to combat malicious websites, website hacking, and to increase general computer security across the internet. http://wh.gov/lqvr8
With photos or digital pictures a huge security step disappears out of the equation the moment it processes and displays on your screen.
In 1993 I was telneting to BBSs using a 14.4 modem. There were all types of BBS connection hubs covering a broad array of subject matter and discussion groups. But 20 years ago today the first Web Site was brought online and we were introduced to browsers and the World Wide Web. To learn more about this time in history visit the first web site project page.
The success of DDoS attacks depends on the filtering done on the client zombies. It is this filtering that we can take advantage of and exploit. If the BOT net cannot connect to the target then it can't flood it with requests.
Give me any programming task or project and I'll show you 50 ways to program it.
Buzzwords are great for marketing and brand recognition or to get the masses all-a-buzz with the latest "makes it sound good" phrase but it has no place in defining what a software package can or can't do.
It looks as if Flash is the forgotten soul in the mobile arena. Like a shunned outcast, the multimedia platform has slowly been left out and finally replaced. With the release of the Android ‘jelly bean’ OS the widely used Adobe product is in a downward spiral toward desktop only applications and other non-mobile markets.
A coding template is a design that has replaceable or re-definable parts that when changed does not effect overall structure. In programming, and in computers generally, there are numerous duplications. There are events, checks, layouts, and other parts of computing that do not change. These parts are often put into templates that allow for differing outputs while maintaining the same general methods to accomplish the code or program execution.
As if programmers didn't have enough to be leery of the new Microsoft openness approach is quite unsettling. Just when we were positive and secure in the belief that MS would be the last kid on the block to share, they create Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc.
When troubleshooting code I try to follow a set path in order to quickly isolate the issue. The problem is that I’m just as guilty as others at trying to shortcut the process. One major trap I fall into is the time consuming ‘wandering’ into certain parts of the code and encountering a road block by not staying on the original path. In doing this I often end up chasing problems that are caused by other problems that need to be addressed first. With that being said I have developed a good instinct for finding problem code.
"The Semantic Web provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. It is a collaborative effort led by W3C with participation from a large number of researchers and industrial partners.
A proposal is being considered that would require all users of computers, smart phone devices, and other internet connected devices, to obtain a license. As is, the proposal would require those users to pass a test and be licensed in order to own and operate such equipment. The licensing process would involve a written test and a practical exam.
