Manuel Lucas La Rosa
Manuel La Rosa, a traveler
Born in Lima, Peru studied engineering in the USA switching to Economics when he moved to Italy.
After rebirthing in Rome and being schooled in Switzerland he went to explore Darpanet in the USA.
After coming back to Caput Mundi he started studying physics but soon left this plane to board on a journey
that still cannot define its boundaries.
The last 20 years he lived in Europe as a carbon form and in the Internet as an avatar.
Between studies he builds computer networks, management systems and security infrastructure
sometimes for financial firms, banks and telcos and sometimes for ayumpari.
He loves to listen but usually talks too much.
Always looking for the question that has consensus reality as an answer. Please advise.
The evolution of the ARPAnet project(as the Internet was once called) offers a rare occasion to observe the emergence of communication patterns in a compressed time scale of a single generation: from zero to a billion
As this social nervous system continues its amazing evolution and we keep on relying to it more and more for traditional communication tasks it is also concocting in defining novel ways of interaction: is this medium generative or is it just a container of innovations?
Presentation of the history of the Internet from 1962 "Galactic Network" papers to pre-1990 WWW invention of Tim Berners-Lee at CERN:
the protocols: machine oriented (e.g. tcp/ip) people oriented (e.g. dns)
the people: the scientists, the hackers, the artists
the technologies: hardware software
The Graphic Web: 1990 - 2001 the change from a text oriented medium to a graphic oriented one and the simplification of access
The People Net: social networks, peer to peer networks, user generated content (e.g.youtube.com)
The eye in the pyramid: search engines, google, governments and the asymmetry of information flow.
The workshop will be on the best-practices, software and hardware that networking professionals use to tame the complexity of networks and we'll try to draw parallels from computers networks to natural networks.
