Articles, Papers, Books, Seminars of William Jolitz (1977-1997)
4/97 Software Development Conference, San Francisco, CA. And Why the Internet Will Bury NT(With Lynne Greer Jolitz ). The Internet is metamorphosing into a single vehicle for information. The question is no longer Who will win the OS war, but instead Is the OS war relevant anymore? This talk examines how this new Internet age and its demands force the reshaping of OS technologies and the industry. Then Sliders scenarios are presented along with predictions about the next set of OS technology losers and winners.
3/96 Software Development Conference, San Francisco, CA. Why NT Will Bury UNIX(With Lynne Greer Jolitz ). The operating systems wars have been waged as long as computers have existed. Now, an aggressive and determined software company is attempting to position itself to conquer the entire market. In this paper, we answer the questions: How real is this threat? What are the actual stakes? And should NT succeed, where does UNIX stand as an also-ran? We also provide a preview of the pending truly new technology operating systems -- where the next great battleground will be fought.
5/95 Dr. Dobb’s Journal, USA: Role-Based Network Security(With Lynne Greer Jolitz ). Network level security is usually very costly, but through the use of role-based security, PC network administration can be reduced to a simple level without loss of integrity.
3/95 Dr. Dobb's Developer Update, USA: Security and the INTERNET(With Lynne Greer Jolitz ). A detailed analysis of the technical flaws in the TCP/IP implementations which allowed intrusion by a cracker over several months and new approaches to correct them.
2/95 Dr. Dobb's Developer Update, USA: Op Ed: Inside 'Intel Inside'. Reflections on Intel's Pentium debacle and how such problems should be handled in the future.
Winter 1994 Dr. Dobbs Journal Information Highway Special Issue, USA: Very High Speed Networks: HiPPI and SIGNA(With Lynne Greer Jolitz ). Very high-speed networking is the key to rapidly and economically delivering large amounts of information.
7/94 Dr. Dobb's Developer Update, USA: Developer's Bookshelf: Gigabit Networking. A discussion of the state-of-the-art on gigabit networking.
1/94 Dr. Dobbs Journal, USA: Polymorphic Protocols. The Internet's fixed address space is being put to the test by dramatic growth in the number of Internet users. Polymorphic protocols may ultimately be the solution to the address-space problem and similar network limitations.
12/92 Dr. Dobbs Journal, USA: Inside the ISO-9660 Filesystem Format(With Lynne Greer Jolitz ). For delivering large amounts of data, CD-ROMS give you the biggest bang for the buck. The ISO-9660 filesystem format is discussed. Example utilities which allow a person to decode a CD-ROM and view a file are also presented.
8/92 Dr. Dobbs Journal, USA: High-Speed Networking. Even though network systems with data transfer rates in the gigabits-per-second range are just around the corner, today's software architectures won't necessarily scale well to higher rates. The problems and promises of high-speed networking are examined, focussing on header prediction and forward-error correction.
