The Network Paradigm

The specific domain in which we choose to communicate is through the network paradigm which started out to be centralized where people initially received their information from a mainframe. This then evolved to distributed and decentralized control.  The most intriguing to me personally is distributed media. Distributed media is when there is no centre source,Continue reading “The Network Paradigm”
