This article is about the social networking service. For the type of directory, see face book. Facebook (formerly [thefacebook]) is an online social networking service headquartered in Menlo Park, California. Facebook was founded on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow Harvard University students Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes.[7] The founders had initially limited the website's membership to Harvard students, but later expanded it to colleges in the Boston area, the Ivy League, and Stanford University. It gradually added support for students at various other universities and later to high-school students. Facebook now allows anyone who claims to be at least 13 years old to become a registered user of the website.[8] Its name comes from a colloquialism for the directory given to it by American universities students.[9] History College-only service Service available to the general public Initial public offering

Ten Commandments of Computer Ethics The Ten Commandments of Computer Ethics were created in 1992 by the Computer Ethics Institute. The commandments were introduced in the paper "In Pursuit of a 'Ten Commandments' for Computer Ethics" by Ramon C. Barquin as a means to create "a set of standards to guide and instruct people in the ethical use of computers." [1] The Ten Commandments of Computer Ethics copies the style of the Ten Commandments from The Bible and uses the archaic "thou shalt" and "thou shalt not" found in the King James version. The commandments have been widely quoted in computer ethics literature [2] but also have been criticized by both the hacker community [3] and some in academia. For instance, Dr. The CISSP — an organization of computer security professionals — has used the commandments as a foundation for its own ethics rules.[5] The Ten Commandments[edit] [Sic.

Casa Criativa Esqueça todos aqueles conhecidos conceitos sobre arquitetura funcional. Ou a ideia de que um apartamento ou casa ideal é aquele que passa logo de cara a imagem de puro aconchego. Para a dupla de arquitetos Madeline Gins, americana de 68 anos, e Arawaka, japonês, 74 anos, o canto ideal é aquele em que o morador encontra diversos obstáculos pela frente, como os lofts que projetaram para o condomínio "Reversible-Destiny", ou "Destino Reversível" em tradução livre, na cidade de Tóquio, no Japão. Fachada do condomínio colorido e nada funcional Reversible-Destiny, em Tóquio Nesses apartamentos, o anti-funcional é levado a sério: as portas são pequenas e obrigam o morador ou visitante a se curvar a cada vez que passam por elas, os pisos não são regulares, o que exige atenção de quem por ali anda a todo momento, e as tomadas e interruptores ficam estrategicamente posicionados em lugares de difícil acesso. Degraus no meio dos ambientes deixam o piso irregular

Napster Later systems successfully followed and elaborated on Napster's file-copying methods, including Gnutella, Freenet, Bit Torrent and many others. Some systems, like LimeWire, Grokster, Madster and the original eDonkey network, were shut down or altered under similar circumstances. Origin[edit] Napster was co-founded by Shawn Fanning, John Fanning, and Sean Parker.[2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9] Initially, Napster was envisioned as an independent peer-to-peer file sharing service. The service operated between June 1999 and July 2001.[10] Its technology allowed people to easily share their MP3 files with other participants.[11] Although the original service was shut down by court order, the Napster brand survived after the company's assets were liquidated and purchased by other companies through bankruptcy proceedings.[12] History[edit] These reasons aside, many other users simply enjoyed trading and downloading music for free.
