Wk 1: The Development of the Cyberspace

tenor (2)

The Internet has been developing in a world for little over the decade and its influential is most important for the social.The cyberspace develops in and identifies with an enormous range of communities. It has revolutionized our world everyday lives.

Now we all depend on the network for communication and share ideas across borders freely and draw on extraordinary archives of the information rapidly.

‘Does it not render the popular mind too fast for the truth?’
The New York Times, 1858

Now the information ‘ too fast for the true’ with the network.It’s all based on the telegraph created.

Samuel Morse and other investors who launched out the telegraph revolutionized long-distance communication in the 1830s and 1840s.It worked by transmitting electrical signals over a wire laid between stations and allowed for the simple transmission of complex messages across telegraph lines.

In addition, Samuel Morse developed a code bearing Morse Code for the Telegraph that assigned a set of dots and dashes to each letter of the English alphabet.


(The first Morse Code Message since 1844 )


The first Intranet-born since the telegram linked from country-to-country, city-to-city, base-to-base.The government is the major to the command-and-control network.

However, the loopholes in telegraph communication gradually emerged without information encrypted.Especially the enemy intercept information with same communication technology or always be vulnerable to the impact of new attack technology.

From telegraph to cyberspace development is beginning of the telegraph itself assumed to be undependable at all times.

How did we solve the issue?

The scientists and researchers hack the telegraph system to set up the info decryption and encryption equipment.And created the infant network with four computers which was named ARPANET transfer data on dedicated high-speed transmission lines in the early ’70s. It was a huge change for the whole world.

We could share one another’s information by long-distance quickly and get in touch

with people easily.it’s such a really handy social interaction service.

  1. It’s quite good for your post. I can briefly understanding the development of the Cyberspace through your post.

    I’m agree that the information is too fast for the true as there are too much information on one topic in the internet. Sometimes, I can not distinguish the authenticity of the information too.

    I think that one of the thing is quite good that you have written the suggestion of solving the issue, it is an additional information, I can know more about relevant information .


  2. I like the way that we gave us a reflection of the development of cyberspace. Although it benefits a lot , many social issues caused by cyberspace as well. i think we should have a balance between cyberspace and the real life.
