This paper proposes a new approach to anonymous communication called information slicing. Typically, anonymiz-ers use onion routing, where a message is encrypted in layers with the public keys of the nodes along the path. Instead , our approach scrambles the message, divides it into pieces, and sends the pieces along disjoint paths. We show that information(More)
We describe the design of, and experience with, Query, a monitoring system that supports the Akamai EdgePlatform. Query is a foundation of Akamai's approach to administering its distributed computing platform, allowing administrators, operations staff, developers, customers, and automated systems near real-time access to data about activity in Akamai's(More)
The Akamai platform is a network of over 73,000 servers supporting numerous web infrastructure services including the distribution of static and dynamic HTTP content , delivery of live and on-demand streaming media, high-availability storage, accelerated web applications, and intelligent routing. The maintenance of such a network requires significant(More)
The report would not have been complete without the efforts and contributions of many individuals and organizations. Much of the underlying assumptions and data used in the analysis were provided by numerous people and companies cited throughout the report. In addition, many individuals provided a peer review of the particular chapter matching his or her(More)

This paper develops a model of housing decisions which allows for social interactions within residential neighborhoods to impact homeowners' valuation of their own properties. The model is used to structure an empirical investigation with data from the American Housing Survey for 1985 and 1989. It explores in great detail a relatively neglected feature of(More)
In the last lecture, we looked at the cache-oblivious model, in which the machine has two levels of memory, one much larger and slower than the other, but where the memory system is controlled automatically, so that our algorithm doesn't see the size of the blocks or the cache. We also looked at cache-oblivious B-trees. In this lecture, we look inside a(More)
