Extractions: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT 26 July 2000 Jeffrey Chester CME (202) 232-2234 FCC Reviews Largest Media Merger Ever, But Impact on the Internet Looms Even Larger AOL-Time Warner Merger Raises Five Basic Concerns WASHINGTON, DC ...As the Federal Communications Commission's 27 July en banc hearing on the proposed AOL-Time Warner merger approaches, a consumer group warned that the future diversity and openness of the Internet are at risk. Even more important than the largest corporate merger in US history, according to the Center for Media Education (CME), is the precedent that the new conglomerate will set for a closed, proprietary broadband delivery system. "If, as AOL's Steve Case suggests, this merger signals the start of the 'Internet Century,' declared Jeffrey Chester, CME's executive director, "Chairman Kennard and the FCC must set the appropriate tone for that new era by ensuring the basic ground rules of fair play and competition." Such ground rules, Chester explained, include opening the broadband networks to all ISPs, ensuring nondiscriminatory transport of all data and services, and fostering the development and dissemination of noncommercial, public-interest programming. At present, Chester noted, cable broadband providers are not required to share their networks with unaffiliated ISPs. The new broadband architecture, moreover, gives network owners an unprecedented opportunity to use their monopoly status to manage network traffic in a manner that favors their own and affiliated content over that of their competitors. The media conglomerates' gain, in other words, will be society's loss.

Extractions: Computer Supported Collaborative Learning: A Review Erno Lehtinen Kai Hakkarainen , Lasse Lipponen Marjaana Rahikainen University of Turku University of Helsinki Network-based tools for collaborative learning (interacting through computer SUMMARY One of the basic requirements for education in the future is to prepare learners for participation in a networked, information society in which knowledge will be the most critical resource for social and economic development. Computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) is one of the most promising innovations to improve teaching and learning with the help of modern information and communication technology. Collaborative or group learning refers to instructional methods whereby students are encouraged or required to work together on learning tasks. It is widely agreed to distinguish collaborative learning from the traditional 'direct transfer' model in which the instructor is assumed to be the distributor of knowledge and skills. Recent research on the role of collaboration in learning has tried to find deeper theoretical frameworks that could better guide the developing of technology-aided learning environments. A distinction between cooperation and collaboration is conceptually central in this review. The distinction is based on different ideas of the role and participation of individual members in the activity. Cooperative work is accomplished by the division of labour among participants. It is an activity where each person is responsible for a portion of the problem solving, whereas collaboration involves the mutual engagement of participants in a coordinated effort to solve the problem together.

Extractions: ABOUT ACI WEB SERVICES PRICES PORTFOLIO ... GOV'T CONTRACTS Automation Creations, Inc. has been at the leading edge of data-driven web application development since the company began in 1996. We use a variety of programming, graphics, and layout tools to make the best use of available technology for our customer. Our MatWeb search engine has become our most popular application. For example, an engineer might be looking for a polymer with a density between 1.5 and 1.6 g/cc and a tensile strength between 200 and 220 MPa. Searching the MatWeb database, over 30 polymers that meet this criteria are located. The engineer can view the specific properties of matching materials, get information about the manufacturer, and view related materials. MatWeb remains one of our most popular data-driven applications with over 15,000 material data sheets displayed daily, and a database of over 28,000 materials (and growing). In addition, we have created similar online product selectors for several major manufacturers including Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, RTP Company, and Quadrant Engineering Plastics Products. We also developed an online real estate search engine.

Future Development Of Haskell been submitted for consideration in future Haskell reports GHC, proposed for Haskell2. basic algebra proposal an extension of Haskell for parallel programming. http://www.haskell.org/development/
Extractions: Haskell 98 is complete. It is the current official definition of Haskell (modulo some minor fixes, as detailed on the Haskell 98 bug page). We expect that this language will be supported in the long term even as new extensions are added to Haskell; compilers will continue to support Haskell 98 (via a special flag). Nonetheless, the language evolves and numerous extensions have been proposed and many of them have been implemented in some Haskell systems; for example pattern guards, scoped type variables, multi-parameter type classes, local universal and existential quantification. The Haskell mailing lists are a forum for discussing new language features. People proposing an additional language feature should implement the new feature or convince the developers of one of the Haskell systems to do so. Then many people can test the practical usefulness of the extension. Finally, the people seriously interested in the new feature should define the new feature with respect to Haskell 98 in a document (a new mailing list can be set up for this purpose). This kind of addendum to the Haskell 98 report clearifies the details and can be used for adding the feature to other Haskell systems. The definition of the foreign function interface (FFI) for Haskell is a good example for this process. On a rather longer time schedule a committee lead by John Launchbury may develop Haskell II. Obviously well-tested and well-described extension proposals will have a higher chance of being adopted.

During the development of the various systems we discovered ways of doing things better the next time round which led onto methods that allow the reuse of existing program code. We initially began using COBOL in the 1970's and we continue to do so. COBOL has evolved and will do many things more than it did back in the early years, much more than many give it credit for. That said, one language is more suitable than another for specific applications, and we have added Delphi and Visual Basic in recent years. Yet some techniques used in program design are very similar and important when considering inbuilt flexibility for

Extractions: Introduction to .NET At the time I started writing this chapter, .NET had entered its Beta 1 cycle. Even though this product is only in Beta 1 (and if you have read the documentation shipped with the .NET SDK, you will see that there is at least a Beta 2 planned), I know that with the Microsoft marketing muscle, many of you may be feeling in some ways as if you are already behind for not having already converted all your applications to use .NET. The reality is that .NET is a brand new architecture; it is not the next version of COM+. What's more, all the Microsoft compilers that were written before have to be rewritten to emit code compatible with the new architecture. In many cases, the language constructs themselves have also been rewritten. Visual Basic, for example, has gone through many syntactical changesso many that some may argue it is not the same language. In this chapter, you are first going to get an introduction to the .NET architecture, then you are going to get an overview of some of the new features in VB.NET, and after you have an understanding of how to use the features, you will learn about how to mix .NET components with COM+ components. Because I am currently using beta software, the information in this chapter is subject to change. There is no way that I can pretend that this chapter will give all the information necessary to be a .NET developer, but it is my hope that you will learn enough to satisfy your curiosity.
Extractions: XHTML is an XML encoding of HTML 4. XHTML is defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C for short), which also defines the various XML and HTML standards. XHTML Basic is a subset of XHTML geared specifically for small devices that can't support the full functionality of XHTML more on that later. From HTML to XHTML XHTML is the bridge between HTML and XML. It imposes XML's strict syntax on HTML and defines XML document type definitions (DTDs) covering HTML 4.01. Take, for example, this simple HTML document: When converted to XHTML it looks like this: Not too different, is it? And to convert your HTML to XHTML there's a tool called
