About this deal

I very rarely change a blog post after it's done, but rather if an update is needed I will write an entirely new post. That model isn't feasible with the IBCC, due to the amount of ground it covers. Therefore, if there is something in the IBCC that is wrong or confusing I will try to fix it immediately. So, if you point out an error, I will thank you for your comment and fix it without delay. This might be a bit confusing at times, because it will create a mis-match between your original comment and the revised text. some nuts & bolts No one person invented the internet. When networking technology was first developed, a number of scientists and engineers brought their research together to create the ARPANET. Later, other inventors’ creations paved the way for the web as we know it today. • PAUL BARAN (1926–2011) President Dwight D. Eisenhower formed the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) in 1958, bringing together some of the best scientific minds in the country. Their aim was to help American military technology stay ahead of its enemies and prevent surprises, such as the launch of the satellite Sputnik 1, happening again. Among ARPA’s projects was a remit to test the feasibility of a large-scale computer network. The IBCC is written by Josh Farkas (@PulmCrit). I'm an attending intensivist at the University of Vermont. Although I was trained in pulmonology and critical care, I've worked solely in the ICU for the past five years. At my shop I have the dubious honor of having the smallest office in the hospital and the largest amount of ICU time.

Oprah’s book club may not be as active as it once was, but you can now rely on the Today Show’s Jenna Bush Hager to recommend a book you won’t be able to put down. In 2019, Jenna brought her love of reading to the Read with Jenna book club, and each month she has chosen books we’ve loved! Rebel Book Club is for bookworms and nonfiction junkies battling the curse of tsundoku — that’s Japanese for the growing pile of unread books next to your bed. They’re a fun, global community of curious minds looking to get maximum value from bad-ass nonfiction reads. The terms ‘World Wide Web’ and ‘internet’ are often confused. The internet is the networking infrastructure that connects devices together, while the World Wide Web is a way of accessing information through the medium of the internet. American computer scientists who developed TCP/IP, the set of protocols that governs how data moves through a network. This helped the ARPANET evolve into the internet we use today. Vint Cerf is credited with the first written use of the word ‘internet’. Now, this book club is a vibrant online community with a beautiful aesthetic and over 130k members. The club has hosted guest recommendations from a stellar cast of artists, musicians, writers and directors; including Grayson Perry, who went for Praise of Shadows, Greta Gerwig, who gave The Argonauts her seal of approval, and Sally Rooney, who chose Daniel Deronda.

An American scientist who worked towards the creation of a distributed network alongside Lawrence Roberts. • DONALD DAVIES (1924–2000)

The IBCC podcast will explore key points in each chapter. Initially the release of podcasts may lag a bit behind the chapters for logistic reasons. However, our goal is to eventually have a podcast for each chapter. Subsequently, the podcast will discuss updates to the IBCC based on new evidence. differences between PulmCrit blog vs. IBCC The PulmCrit blog will continue in its current form. The blog is intended for more in-depth pieces with examination of the literature and an emphasis on new developments. In contrast, the IBCC is intended more for bedside management, with an emphasis on clinically applicable information and rapid readability. Many topics are covered in both formats, allowing you to choose either a more detailed or boiled-down version. It later occurred to me that I could write an internet book. This could have the same organization and content of a traditional book. However, it would have many advantages: There was no “Eureka!” moment. It was not like the legendary apple falling on Newton’s head to demonstrate the concept of gravity. Inventing the World Wide Web involved my growing realisation that there was a power in arranging ideas in an unconstrained, weblike way. And that awareness came to me through precisely that kind of process. The Web arose as the answer to an open challenge, through the swirling together of influences, ideas, and realisations from many sides. I never have conflicts of interest. Opinions expressed in this book are mine alone, they don't necessarily represent those of my institution, colleagues, or other editors of EMCrit.org. Any errors in the podcast are Adam's fault.

Small talk? No, thanks. Homework? Pass. Silent Book Club is all about enjoying books, company, and beverages — without having to think of something smart to say. Founded in 2012 by a couple of friends who liked to read in companionable silence, Silent Book Club now has over 240 “chapters” (that’s a group) who gather across 30+ countries to read together in silence. Since 2017, Lez Book Club members have been meeting in London pubs to provide a space for queer women to come together and share LGBT books. But the pivot to virtual book clubs (and virtual everything else) has given founder Eleanore Pratoussy the opportunity to remove all physical boundaries from the group and open up this lit-loving community to queer and trans women, and nonbinary people, all around the world. Reese Witherspoon has her name in the credits of some of the most sparkling book-to-screen adaptations to date; including Wild, Big Little Lies, and Little Fires Everywhere. But her love for a great story extends beyond turning it into a hit series.

Our Shared Shelf was founded in 2016 by actor Emma Watson as part of her work with UN women. The online book club focused on intersectional feminist literature, including must-read books like The Handmaid’s Tale and powerful memoirs like The Beauty Myth by Naomi Wolf. If you’re looking for the benefits of a popular online book club, as well as the intimacy of a local group to join with all your friends, then search no further than the Poppy Loves Book Club. Run by Eva of Poppy Loves London, this women-only club serves as an umbrella community, joining together hundreds of local book clubs from all corners of the world.The approaches described in this book are generally based on my practice patterns. They are neither the only way to do things, nor necessarily the best. I have focused on my practice in efforts to stay realistic and concise. When asked to explain my role in the creation of the internet, I generally use the example of a city. I helped to build the roads—the infrastructure that gets things from point A to point B.

We have entered a period of sustained growth that could eventually double the world’s economy every dozen years and bring increasing prosperity for—quite literally—billions of people on the planet. We are riding the early waves of a 25-year run of a greatly expanding economy that will do much to solve seemingly intractable problems like poverty and to ease tensions throughout the world. This book isn't intended as the last word, but rather as a jumping-off point for further study. As such, each chapter contains links to related blogs, podcasts, and articles for more information and additional opinions. The book isn't encyclopedic. I've tried to cover the more interesting and common ICU problems. If you think something is missing, let me know and I can try to add it.

The enormous excitement surrounding the internet led to a massive boom in new technology shares between 1998 and 2000. This became known as the ‘dotcom bubble’. TCP/IP stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. The term is used to describe a set of protocols that govern how data moves through a network. Live embedded tweets are included to add some additional depth and color. Comments about tweets are in green italics beneath the tweets. For example:
