Authoritative Sources in a Hyperlinked Environment 

Authoritative Sources in a Hyperlinked Environment
"Abstract. The network structure of a hyperlinked environment can be a rich source of information about the content of the environment, provided we have effective means for understanding it. We develop a set of algorithmic tools for extracting information from the link structures of such environments, and report on experiments that demonstrate their effectiveness in a variety of contexts on the World Wide Web. The central issue we address within our framework is the distillation of broad search topics, through the discovery of “authoritative” information sources on such topics. We propose and test an algorithmic formulation of the notion of authority, based on the relationship between a set of relevant authoritative pages and the set of “hub pages” that join them together in the link structure. Our formulation has connections to the eigenvectors of certain matrices associated with the link graph; these connections in turn motivate additional heuristics for link-based analysis."

"You have a great product, many customers, and are delivering your product to hordes of happy customers online. Serving large files creates problems of scaling, flash crowds, and reliability. As you grow, they become more central to your business, but your bandwidth costs go up as well. It's a vicious cycle.

There is a solution. BitTorrent is a simple software product which addresses all of these problems.

The key to cheap file distribution is to tap the unutilized upload capacity of your customers. It's free. Their contribution grows at the same rate as their demand, creating limitless scalability for a fixed cost."

LionShare - Connecting and Extending Peer-to-Peer Networks 

LionShare - Connecting and Extending Peer-to-Peer Networks
"Abstract
With support from the Mellon Foundation, the Visual User Image Study (VIUS)1 discovered how digital images are used at Penn State for teaching, research, and outreach. Through extensive contact with stakeholders, the VIUS team identified criteria that point to the need for more flexible, user-controlled tools and services for discovery, organization, management, and sharing of personal and public images. Many of the features that stakeholders identified suggested a much different model of collaboration is needed—one that places much more control in the hands of the end user than currently available in large central repositories and that peer-to-peer (P2P) technologies offer many of these features. The VIUS team determined that peer-to-peer technologies offer unique opportunities to enable greater access and use of personal and publicly available image collections and that a prototype was warranted because the vast majority of digital images reside in private collections and that access to and integration of public image collections is problematic. The LionShare proposal emerges from the lessons learned from VIUS."

Technology Review: Peer-to-Peer Comes Clean
"Despite ongoing efforts to blackball it, peer-to-peer technology is fast gaining ground. P2P gets its bad reputation for being the mechanism that powers those massive copyright-violation systems like Kazaa and Morpheus. But as I wrote a year ago in this space, this technology can be used for good: It has the power to strengthen the Internet against terrorist attack, allow even the smallest publishers to distribute information to the multitudes, and protect controversial information against censorship and suppression."

Correctly Rounding Math Library for Java  

Correctly Rounding Math Library for Java
"The objective of the project was to produce a library of twelve fast math function subroutines, written in the (standard) C programming language. Its main feature is the rounding mode of the functions. Each of the routines produces results that are always exactly equal to the accurate, infinite precision values of the corresponding functions, rounded to the nearest/even machine number. The importance of this is that all routines written for the same function, with this standard, are bit by bit compatible, even if the details of the algorithms differ. This enables the user to achieve, in a most natural way, the Java objective of 'develop once and run everywhere'. The routines were produced for the IEEE 754 standard 'double' format, assuming round to the nearest rounding mode for the 'double' data type. The library is portable (provided the arithmetic and 'double' format are right!) and was tested on IBM RS/6000, IBM PC (Pentium), IBM S/390 with the binary floating point feature, and SUN SPARC computers."

Routing Networks for Distributed Hash Tables 

Routing Networks for Distributed Hash Tables
"ABSTRACT
Routing topologies for distributed hashing in peer-to-peer networks are classified into two categories: deterministic and randomized. A general technique for constructing deterministic routing topologies is presented. Using this technique, classical parallel interconnection networks can be adapted to handle the dynamic nature of participants in peer-to-peer networks. A unified picture of randomized routing topologies is also presented. Two new protocols are described which improve average latency as a function of out-degree. One of the protocols can be shown to be optimal with high probability. Finally, routing networks for distributed hashing are revisited from a systems perspective and several open design problems are listed."

OCLC and its member libraries cooperatively produce and maintain WorldCat—the OCLC Online Union Catalog."

Persistent URL Home Page 

Persistent URL Home Page
"A PURL is a Persistent Uniform Resource Locator. Functionally, a PURL is a URL. However, instead of pointing directly to the location of an Internet resource, a PURL points to an intermediate resolution service. The PURL resolution service associates the PURL with the actual URL and returns that URL to the client. The client can then complete the URL transaction in the normal fashion. In Web parlance, this is a standard HTTP redirect.

The OCLC PURL Service has been strongly influenced by the active participation of OCLC's Office of Research in the Internet Engineering Task Force Uniform Resource Identifier working groups. There is nothing incompatible between PURLs and the ongoing URN (Uniform Resource Name) work. PURLs satisfy many of the requirements of URNs using currently deployed technologies and can be transitioned smoothly into a URN architecture once it is deployed."
