Infographic: Hackers Create An Amazing, Illegal Portrait Of The Internet

Infographic: Hackers Create An Amazing, Illegal Portrait Of The Internet | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

It wasn’t malicious. The file itself was the size of a small JPEG. It was given the absolute lowest priority. And it was set to self-destruct if anything went wrong. But this small file allowed one single hacker to measure the Internet activity of nearly half a million connected devices around the world, then share the results with everyone.

How was this even possible? The "hacker" barely hacked anything. In reality, they gained access to all these systems because each had the default "root" set as a password. With this access in hand, they ran several tests focusing on Internet structure and activity. And what they created from all this data is a spectacular map that captures a day in the life of the Internet (and all of its users).

This link is a collection of inforgraphics about the Internet.

The gallery of visualizations looks at global web browser statistics, user behavior, online entertainment and more.

A few examples: Firefox is losing a slice of its share to other web browsers, while Internet Explorer still somehow holds on to roughly 50% of the market. Also how productivity is affected as a result of the internet and social networks, with the most unproductive apps and websites being Twitter and Facebook.

There and Back Again: A Packet’s Tale. How Does the Internet Work?

There and Back Again: A Packet’s Tale. How Does the Internet Work? | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

How does the Internet really work? Ride shotgun with a packet of data—one of trillions involved in the trillions of Internet interactions that happen every second. Look deep beneath the surface of the most basic Internet transaction, and follow the packet as it flows from your fingertips, through circuits, wires, and cables, to a host server, and then back again, all in less than a second.

Human Beings are Information-Seeking Creatures (w/video) | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

The Internet has revolutionized the way we connect and the way we think, speeding up the rate of virtually everything. At times, having so many facts at your fingertips can feel less like an upside and more like a deluge. (There's a reason why Gleick's book is subtitled "a flood.") But fundamental cultural and technological shifts in our relationship to information are hardly unprecedented. They're "part of the evolution of the species," he says.

The Internet Of Things: Every Device That Connects Us [Infographic]

The Internet Of Things: Every Device That Connects Us [Infographic] | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

When trying to piece together the devices that we use to connect to each other, it’s easy to see that it’s going to take a piece of paper the size of Texas to feature them all. Even if we manage to do so, we will be far from connecting them all in whatever way they use the Internet. So what do we do? Well, we do it anyway, and on a computer of course. Intel put together a really interesting infographic that lines up all the devices that we use to connect to each other.

For the first time, we can get a clear view of how the technological infrastructure was built and to what extent it reaches out. As you can see, the numbers represented get multiplied with each major technological milestone, and it’s easy to see that we’re heading for something really interesting in the future. Whatever it will be that will beat the Internet will be major, and even though I can’t imagine what that will be right now, it’s still exciting to know that we always come up with something to beat the previous technology. What do you think will be the next big thing in technology that will top the Internet?

[VIDEO] Invention of the Internet in 1934?

[VIDEO] Invention of the Internet in 1934? | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

In a 1934 book titled, The Treaties on Documentation, Belgian entrepreneur Paul Otlet conceived of a system for requesting and retrieving massive amounts of information. Calling it a “radiated library,” Otlet’s device would allow users to retrieve all the world’s information—books, magazines, film, music—with a single phone call. Did he invent the Internet? Here, Alex Wright, director of user experience at The New York Times and discoverer of Otlet’s lost opus, explains at the 2012 World Science Festival program, Internet Everywhere, just how close Otlet had come to creating the world’s first information-networking system.

Should we sacrifice our brains to the Internet?

Should we sacrifice our brains to the Internet? | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

One of the greatest effects of the Internet is its ability to capture our attention only to scatter it, ultimately producing a generation whose brains are being better hardwired to scan, skim and multitask, causing a weakening in our ability to read and think deeply in a concentrated manner.

The Internet's Cult of Now

The Internet's Cult of Now | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

There is only one measure of time that matters to the current Internet generation: the here and now. The Cult of Now is influencing everything that we do and every interaction we have on the Internet, especially since providing a live, real-time update is often no more difficult than pressing a button on a smart phone. We now perceive our digital lives as a continuous flow of information, and as the intensity of this information flow builds, it means that "the now" gets a disproportionate amount of attention and focus in our society. The Cult of Now satisfies our desire for instant digital gratification, but does it impoverish us in other ways?

Top Ten Best Visualization Tools for Social Media, Blogosphere, Internet & News | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
Art, maps,imagery and graphs add context and a visual component to numbers, locations, and information.

With as much influx of data we contend with on a daily basis, visualization tools allows our brains to take a rest while perceiving content in a different light. In essence, visualization allows us to stop and smell the pixels, in spite of the fact we might learn a few things along the way.

Visualization is a technique to graphically represent sets of data that makes it easier to read and understand. Tools for visualization exist in search, social networks, online communities, mobile apps and desktop applications.

Check out of some of the most unique visualization tools available today...
