Pastry handles this task by selecting only a fraction of the intended recipients to which its server will distribute the data. They pass it on to other nearby nodes in the network that they "know". ... This is because every time a new subscriber signs up, its nearest neighbours are automatically updated. Every computer in the system knows about a number of other peers in the system.

The Union of International Associations ( has had a long-term interest in information visualization. Already in 1971, a 16mm film about the work of the UIA in this field was produced, thanks to Mr Anthony Judge (former Assistant Secretary-General of the organization).

Broadband promised to unite the world with super-fast data delivery - but in South Africa it seems the web is still no faster than a humble pigeon.

The internet is evolving into a far more powerful beast that could turbo-charge your computer, without you even noticing. ... The net allowed computers to talk together. Grid computing allows computers to work together, not just communicate together.

Computer chips of the size and sophistication required to meet the challenge already exist. ... For a planet like Mars, smart dust particles would each have to be the size of a grain of sand. ... Wireless networking would allow these particles to form swarms, and Dr Barker's team has carried out mathematical simulations to see how this would work. ... We envisage that most of the particles can only talk to their nearest neighbours but a...

The Cell technology, on the other hand, uses multiple Cell processors linked together to run lots of calculations simultaneously. This gives it processing power an order of magnitude above its competitors. ... Each Cell will be linked to the others, creating a vast home network of computing power.

It has often been said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. For the internet, that first step was more of a stumble. At 2100, on 29 October 1969, engineers 400 miles apart at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) and Stanford Research Institute (SRI) prepared to send data between the first nodes of what was then known as Arpanet.

The researchers discovered in their study that the bacteria’s game theory decision making process is far more advanced than the well-known game theory problem known as the Prisoner's Dilemma. Scientists studying how bacteria under stress collectively weigh and initiate different survival strategies say they have gained new insights into how humans make strategic decisions that affect their health, wealth and the fate of others in...

Researchers in Japan have shown that a slime mold can design a network that is as efficient as one developed by humans over many years: the Tokyo rail system. Furthermore, the slime mold can build its network in a day. A slime mold is what scientists refer to as a single-celled amoeboid organism. When foraging for food, it spreads out as an amorphous mass and then builds tubular connections between the food sources.

The latest spin-off from Cern, the particle physics centre that created the web, the grid could also provide the kind of power needed to transmit holographic images; allow instant online gaming with hundreds of thousands of players; and offer high-definition video telephony for the price of a local call.

The way fungus-like slime moulds grow could help engineers design wireless communication networks. Scientists drew this conclusion after observing a slime mould as it grew into a network that was almost identical to the Tokyo rail system.
