2. Sending your request with a browser, IE
google page [PNG image (34.01 KB)]
naver page [PNG image (326.87 KB)]
daum page [PNG image (271.3 KB)]

3. Server Side

Address URL:
The computer at the address (URL), is responding "Who talked to me? http "
WWW daemon response
Things (software) called WWW daemon, WWW server, HTTPD
[http]Using IIS Internet Information Service, the MS Windows

Daum case

. . . . 


A document which is composed of tags + information
Some information (meta info) goes here such as
this is the title of this page
Some information goes here. This is the body information of this web page.

Now this information goes back to where the request came from (that is, your computer).

4. Transferring method: How is it transfer?

  1. TCP/IP -> IP packet (-ized) information
    disecting the information into many parts (which has the same specification).
  2. IP address
    IP address?
    32 bits addressing number is used in TCP/IP
    8 bits = 1 computer bytes
    Hence, 32 bits address = 4 computer bytes
    One bytes = (256 variation)
    00000000, 00000001, 00000010, 00000011, 00000100, 00000101, 00000110, 00000111, 00001000 .......and all the way up to 11111111.
    If you count this numbers, there are 256 numbers.
    Hence, we have 256 x 256 x 256 x 256 numbers which can be used as computer addresses!
    These numbers can be assigned to every (networked) computer on the earth!
  3. Let's check with [http] service
    Who assign these? --> some organization assigned by each nation.
  4. But, I used domain name, a URL, not the strange looking number.
    We use domain name
Domain Name
Domain name
one-byte numberseparator . . .
translated to . . .

These name should not be duplicated! (The right to use the domain name should be assigned by the authority).
Also, we need to some machine to match these two (IP -> domain name and domain name -> IP address).
This is called DNS (Domain Name Server).
[http]What happened in Korea.

Then how is it delivered?
See [http]packet method (You need flash player installed in (with) your favorite browser)

5. Then, what else than http

application in tcpip [PNG image (13.04 KB)]

Or many other such as
ftp e.g., or
and many other. see, WikiPedia:programs that we might not know all for more information.

6. History

See Internet History for more information. See also WikiPedia:Usenet.

  1. TCP/IP
  2. [http]Gutenberg Project from 1971
  3. Usenet uses
    [PNG image (17.9 KB)]

    [PNG image (89 KB)]

    [PNG image (12.89 KB)]

    Terms used in the Usenet
    • Breidbart Index
    • Cross-post
    • FAQ
    • Flaming and flame war
    • Flood aka flooders and flooding
    • FWAK
    • Godwin's Law
    • It's always September See WikiPedia:Eternal September
    • kill file
    • list of newsgroups
    • MSTing
    • scorefile
    • sock puppet
    • sporgery
    • Trolling
    • Usenet Death Penalty
    • Usenet cabal
    • Wackyparsing
    • X-No-Archive
  4. WWW
  5. Yahoo, Google, naver, etc.
  6. Web 2.0 ?

7. Points

  1. The internet once was open technology and still is.
    1. Gutenberg, Usenet -> flicker, 지식인, facebook, cyworld, . . .
    2. Gateway computer design
    3. TCP/IP design, etc.
  2. Under these environment, many things (that are considered good) happened.
    • asynchronous, synchronous communication through many technologies
      • yahoo, dell, google
    • These companies are not just results from a vacuum state.
    • They need an open sphere
  3. This should happen to us, too. . . .
    See, InternetDevelopment#s-2 Internet portal

8. Portal service ?
