About this corner of the World Wide Web
The human brain contains roughly 100 billion neurons ,linked with up to 10,000 synaptic connections each. These neurons communicate with one another by means of long fibers called axons, which carry trains of signal pulses called action potentials to distant parts of the brain or body and target them to specific recipient cells. This multiple connections create a tremendously complex net called neural network.
In a similar way, the well known World Wide Web (W.W.W.) begun in 1989 by Tim Berners-Lee, working at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland. The World Wide Web enabled the spread of information over the a net of connected computers all around the world.
As we can imagine, every single computer connected to this wide network is like a single neuron which process the inbound and outbound information. In our brain all conscious and unconscious cognitive processes are refered as “Mind“, while the wide world network is refered as “Internet“.
The computers that are involved to this network are operated with the help of operating systems (OS) that are installed on this computers. The majority of the W.W.W. infrastructure are running a Unix-like operating system, like Linux (the most popular amongst them ), BSD’s (FreeBSD-OpenBSD-NetBSD), Solaris etc.
Nowadays linux is getting the most of attention for various, well known reasons. It can be configured to operate a small cell phone , a desktop/notebook/netbook computer, a server, a data center, a supercomputer like the one’s in CERN or the BlueGen or last but not least on critical space missions. When people are using web services like Google, Yahoo, Flickr etc. or web sites they are using a Unix-like OS where most of them are built on Linux.
From my perspective, Linux is the future of the way connecting all the parts of the internet, devices that connect to it and all the technology that involves in cloud computing and social networking. All of this ultimate network which represents an extension of the human cerebro (brain) with the Linux inside of it, I call it Cerebrux.
Born and living in Greece, interested in Philosophy, Science, Technology, Operating Systems but mostly in tweaking and hacking Linux. Since 2003 Linux is serving me as my day life operating system for work, surfing the Internet and mostly for fun. Since then it proved to be a solid, stable, secure but mostly a beautiful OS. Because of its open source nature “Linux is developed by humanity for humanity”. Occasionally using both English and Greek, this website will, hopefully be filled with thoughts, ideas, articles, things I find interesting in or about Linux, and mostly things about a everyday life with LINUX.
