Title: Cable TV Lobby, Including Comcast, Tells FCC: Give Us a "Closed" Broadband Net
Publication: Center for Digital Democracy
Publication Date: 2/15/2002
Abstract or Excerpt: In an effort to seal off a portion of the Internet as its own private domain, the cable TV industry is pressing the FCC to classify the cable modem business as an "information service," free of the open-access provisions that have made the Internet so diverse and competitive. In a series of February meetings, phone calls, and other lobbying efforts with commissioners and their key staff, the cable industry has made it clear that it wants to become the major gatekeeper of the broadband Internet. As the exclusive Internet service provider for the millions of household that will subscribe to cable's broadband offerings over the next several years, the cable industry is poised to exercise the same tight control of the online world that it currently wields in the multi-channel video market.

Title: Studying Online Social Networks
Author: L. Garton, C. Haythornthwaite and B. Wellman
Publication: Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication 3(1), 1997
Abstract or Excerpt: When a computer network connects people or organizations, it is a social network. Yet the study of such computer-supported social networks has not received as much attention as studies of human-computer interaction, online person-to-person interaction, and computer-supported communication within small groups. We argue the usefulness of a social network approach for the study of computer-mediated communication. We review some basic concepts of social network analysis, describe how to collect and analyze social network data, and demonstrate where social network data can be, and have been, used to study computer-mediated communication. Throughout, we show the utility of the social network approach for studying computer-mediated communication, be it in computer-supported cooperative work, in virtual community, or in more diffuse interactions over less bounded systems such as the Internet.

Title: Cramming More Components onto Integrated Circuits
Author: Gordon E. Moore
Publication: Electronics 38(8)

Title: Moore's Law
Author: Intel Corporation
Abstract or Excerpt: Gordon Moore made his famous observation in 1965, just four years after the first planar integrated circuit was discovered. The press called it "Moore's Law" and the name has stuck. In his original paper, Moore observed an exponential growth in the number of transistors per integrated circuit and predicted that this trend would continue. Through Intel's relentless technology advances, Moore's Law, the doubling of transistors every couple of years, has been maintained, and still holds true today. Intel expects that it will continue at least through the end of this decade. The mission of Intel's technology development team is to continue to break down barriers to Moore's Law.
