Remarks on the question of privacy raised by the automation of mental health records by Paul Baran( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the invasion-of-privacy problem has always been with us, its magnitude and complexion is changing. In the past, personal, sensitive information was kept in separate manual files. Specific individual permission was required any time an outsider wished information. As we look to the future and foresee greater integration of medical information systems, it may not be premature to think of the evolutionary development of such systems and the new problems they will create if adequate safeguards are not considered early and leaky systems prevented.

LSI : the basic module for new communication networks by Paul Baran( Book )

3 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are witnessing a growing appreciation that communications systems which transmit analog signals (such as voice) could benefit if designed as all-digital computer-like assemblies. This new view of communications as a digital process is a minority viewpoint in the communications industry; but a minority which is rapidly increasing. I believe that the direction of all-digital-communications-networks development will be towards true, all-digital systems including both transmission and switching. Our present analog techniques may be on their way out. Many of the systems cannot be built entirely out of LSI components. Some microwave elements, for example, will still require individual components such as varactor diodes and strip-transmission lines; but the bulk of circuitry could be in LSI modules. (Author)

The coming computer utility--laissez-faire, licensing, or regulation? by Paul Baran( Book )

3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are moving headlong into an era where information processing will be available the same way one buys his electricity. But the attributes that distinguish heterogeneous information from the homogeneous products distributed by the earlier utilities are so different that a fresh regulatory approach is needed for technological progress, safety, and the public interest. We may want to think of this as tomorrow's problem. But tomorrow is here. (Author)
On the future computer era : modification of the American character and the role of the engineer, or a little caution in the haste to number by Paul Baran( Book )

3 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

DeTocqueville, describing the American frontier of the 1830s, was struck by the freedom of Americans to come and go as they pleased without documents. He recorded the effects of an open frontier which bred people whose optimistic outlook was entirely different from that which he had encountered in Europe. For the first time he met citizens who felt their only limitation to wealth and happiness lay within themselves. We have come a long way from the day of the frontier ethic. In the process of building more complex social institutions to better serve groups of individuals, we are (and perhaps unnecessarily) eroding mechanisms conducive to social mobility. Better record keeping may be forcing us to move away from the value structure deTocqueville described to that of a new nation, where the name of the game is too often 'keeping your nose clean' or 'not getting involved.'
