By John Naughton

John Naughton is the Observer's 'Networker' columnist, a sought after blogger, and Vice-President of Wolfson collage, Cambridge. the days has stated that his writings, “[it] attracts on greater than 20 years of research to give an explanation for how the web works and the demanding situations and possibilities it is going to supply to destiny generations,” and Cory Doctrow raved that "this is the type of primer you must slide lower than your boss’s door." In From Gutenberg to Zuckerberg, Naughton explores the dwelling background of 1 of the main appreciably transformational applied sciences of all time.
From Gutenberg to Zuckerberg is a clear-eyed heritage of 1 of the main vital, and but such a lot taken-for-granted, positive aspects of recent existence: the web. as soon as a technological novelty and now the very plumbing of the knowledge Age, the web is whatever we have now discovered to take mostly with no consideration. So, how precisely has our society develop into so based upon a software it slightly knows? And what does it say approximately us that this can be so? 

whereas explaining in hugely attractive language the best way the web works and the way it received to be how it is, technologist John Naughton has distilled the noisy chatter surrounding the technology’s relentless evolution into 9 crucial components of knowing. In doing so, he offers readers deeper perception into the knowledge financial system and provides the considered necessary wisdom to make greater use of the applied sciences and networks round us, highlighting a few of their attention-grabbing and far-reaching implications alongside the best way.

4 Model Human Processor (MHP) framework rationality principle of MHP demonstrates that the human behaviors are based on rational activities and would not randomly and arbitrarily change. Moreover, the problem space principle of MHP shows “all rational activities serve to achieve human’s explicit goals, given the task and external information are bounded by his knowledge and processing ability”. The MHP approach has demonstrated its particular strengths in modeling human interaction process, and thus we select it for the User-Context Module.

The Web server (resource owner) has the limited number of worker threads, which are normally under demand of its clients. The individual Web client is essentially the Web browser with its end-user. Assuming that the KCIs of Web clients, namely IS and CS, is able to timely derived and transferred to the server side, accordingly at the Initialization Period of each time slot, Web Enabling User Context Utilization in the Internet Communication Protocols . . 45 server will firstly perform the given WUA algorithm and then immediately informs the willingness values to the corresponding client.

Figure 8 illustrates the above three-step procedure, and the detailed algorithms for the Willingness Update Algorithm in STEP 1 and the Resource Distribution Algorithm in STEP 3 can be found in [4]. 44 Y. Lu Fig. 3 Framework Properties The three-step basic workflow determines an interaction process between the resource owner and all of its clients. We can analyze such a process using noncooperative game theory: all clients are the game players, and they can independently choose their own bidding strategy for maximizing their individual payoff; the implemented WUA and RDA can be regarded as the utility functions; the payoffs for the game players are the final distribution results.
