World Wide Web Journal, Issue One
Author: The World Wide Web Consortium
Publisher: O'Reilly & Associates
Reviewer: Danny Yee
I usually only review periodicals after reading a year's worth of issues, but the first issue of World Wide Web Journal looks more like a book than a journal (and it has both an ISBN and an ISSN). Also, the journal is a quarterly, but the first issue consists of the proceedings of an annual conference (the Fourth International World Wide Web Conference, held in Boston in December 1995), so the next three issues may be rather different.
Issue one of the World Wide Web Journal contains fifty-nine papers, fifty-seven from the conference mentioned and two from regional conferences. The range of topics covered is immense. To list just a few (in no particular order): why the GIF and JPEG formats aren't good enough for really high quality graphics; low level security in Java; the results from the third WWW Survey; an analysis of Metacrawler use; caching systems; a filtering system to provide restricted access to the Web; a PGP/CCI system for Web security; the Millicent system for financial transactions involving small sums; smart tokens; and better support for real-time video and audio. There are also several papers on the use of the Web in education, on cooperative authoring tools, on Web interfaces to various database and software systems, and a whole pile of other things.
Though none of them assume specialized knowledge, the papers are mostly technical presentations of new ideas for systems and protocols: not everyone who runs a Web server or authors HTML will find them of interest. But anyone interested in the future of Web technology—either because they are involved in its development or out of curiosity—should find enough in the World Wide Web Journal to make it worth seeking out a copy.
Disclaimer: I requested and received a review copy of Issue One of the World Wide Web Journal from O'Reilly & Associates, but I have no stake, financial or otherwise, in its success.

Free Webinar: Hadoop
How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
