164. Early Unix History And Evolution
The evolution of the Unix Timesharing System*. This paper presents a technical and social history of the evolution of the system. Origins.
The Evolution of the Unix Time-sharing System*
Dennis M. Ritchie
Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ, 07974
This paper presents a brief history of the early development of the Unix operating system. It concentrates on the evolution of the file system, the process-control mechanism, and the idea of pipelined commands. Some attention is paid to social conditions during the development of the system.
NOTE: *This paper was first presented at the Language Design and Programming Methodology conference at Sydney, Australia, September 1979. The conference proceedings were published as Lecture Notes in Computer Science #79: Language Design and Programming Methodology, No. 6 Part 2, October 1984, pp. 1577-93.
During the past few years, the Unix operating system has come into wide use, so wide that its very name has become a trademark of Bell Laboratories. Its important characteristics have become known to many people. It has suffered much rewriting and tinkering since the first publication describing it in 1974 [1], but few fundamental changes. However, Unix was born in 1969 not 1974, and the account of its development makes a little-known and perhaps instructive story. This paper presents a technical and social history of the evolution of the system.
For computer science at Bell Laboratories, the period 1968-1969 was somewhat unsettled. The main reason for this was the slow, though clearly inevitable, withdrawal of the Labs from the Multics project. To the Labs computing community as a whole, the problem was the increasing obviousness of the failure of Multics to deliver promptly any sort of usable system, let alone the panacea envisioned earlier. For much of this time, the Murray Hill Computer Center was also running a costly GE 645 machine that inadequately simulated the GE 635. Another shake-up that occurred during this period was the organizational separation of computing services and computing research.

A brief experiment in coding a simple genetic algorithm 'bit counter' that compares different evolution parameters.

These pages are embryonic - I'm still learning this stuff. In the absence of tutorial material, they assume you're familiar with the basics of GAs (here's an ultra-brief description if you're interested). Right now, these pages contain the results of my comparisons of different parameters for a very simple GA, a "bit counter".
Comparing Different Parameters for Evolving a Bit Counter
Just about the simplest GA is the "bit counter". Each individual in the population ("member") comprises one chromosome, an n-bit string of binary digits ("0"s and "1"s). Each member's fitness is determined as the number of bits within its chromosome that are turned on ("1"). E.g., for a five-bit string: Table 1: Fitness of Example Bit Counters Member Chromosome Fitness This is unlifelike: genes don't code "for" embryonic or any other development; there's no phenotype involved. We've all got to start somewhere, though. I wrote a program that evolves bit counters using systematically different parameters. For each unique set of parameters, the program perfomed six runs of 30 generations per run. The parameters used were: Table 2: Parameters Varied for Evolving a Bit Counter Parameter Value 1 Value 2 Value 3 Value 4 Mutation N/A Crossover rate N/A Selection method Uniform Fitness-proportionate N/A N/A Crossover method Single-point Two-point Each-bit uniform Each-bit weighted
  • Mutation = 0: no mutation
  • Mutation = 0.001: "normal" mutation

ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) The state's school superintendent has proposed striking the word evolution from Georgia's science curriculum and replacing it with the phrase "biological changes over time." The change is included in more than 800 pages of draft revisions to Georgia's curriculum that have been posted by the Department of Education on its Web site. The middle and high school standards are expected to be voted on by the state Board of Education in May, after public feedback. Superintendent Kathy Cox said the concept of evolution would still be taught under the proposal, but the word would not be used. The proposal would not require schools to buy new textbooks omitting the word evolution and would not prevent teachers from using it.

Ancient Greek Views If the mechanical view is to be found in these philosophers, the teleological occurs in Heraclitus, who conceives the process as a rational development, in accordance with the Logos and names steps of the process, as from igneous air to water, and thence to earth. The Stoics followed Heraclitus in the main lines of their physics. The primal principle is, as with him, igneous air. only that this is named God by them with much greater definiteness. The Godhead has life in itself, and develops into the universe, differentiating primarily into two kinds of elements the finer or active, and the coarser or passive. Formation or development goes on continuously, under the impulse of the formative principle, by whatever name it is known, until all is once more dissolved by the ekpyrosis into the fundamental principle, and the whole process begins over again. Their conception of the process as analogous to the development of the seed finds special expression in their term of logos spermatikos . In one point the Stoics differ essentially from Heraclitus. With them the whole process is accomplished according to certain ends indwelling in the Godhead, which is a provident, careful intelligence, while no providence is assumed in Heraclitus.

The theory of evolution depends upon three conditions.

  • Creative Mutations
  • Lots of Time Let's look at each of these conditions, one at a time.

    Stellar Evolution I - Solar Type Stars
    The actual process of star formation remains shrouded in mystery because stars form in dense, cold molecular clouds whose dust obscures newly formed stars from our view. For reasons which are not fully understood, but which may have to do with collisions of molecular clouds, or shockwaves passing through molecular clouds as the clouds pass through spiral structure in galaxies, or magnetic-gravitational instabilities (or, perhaps all of the above) the dense core of a molecular cloud begins to condense under its self-gravity, fragmenting into stellar mass clouds which continue to condense forming protostars . As the cloud condenses, gravitational potential energy is released - half of this released gravitational energy goes into heating the cloud, half is radiated away as thermal radiation. Because gravity is stronger near the center of the cloud (remember F g ~ 1/distance ) the center condenses more quickly, more energy is released in the center of the cloud, and the center becomes hotter than the outer regions. As a means of tracking the stellar life-cycle we follow its path on the Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram.

    (i) According to the hypothesis, the acquisition of grammatical competence occurs when linguistic information is routed to and processed by spatial centers in the brain.
    (ii) Specifically, it is claimed that linguistic expressions are processed as if they were objects with internal structural configurations. That is, they are processed in terms of certain basic image schemas, namely part-whole and linkage schemas critical to the recognition of the configurations which define complex physical objects.
    (iii) But as Johnson (1987) argues at length, image schemas are basically embodied schemas, high level schemas which function as cognitive models of the body and its interaction with the environment.
    In other words, the Spatialization of Form Hypothesis treats grammar as a form of image-schemaic thought in which words, phrases, and sentences are endowed with an abstract structure grounded in immediate bodily experience of physical objects. It therefore predicts as association between grammar and such cognitive abilities as object recognition, spatial structure, and body awareness, especially modeling bodily movement and position is space."

    Rach.C, Resident Scholar
    Excellent and realistic Sci-Fi movie about a meteor crashing with life forms aborad. Aliens evolve so quickly that they covered over 6 trillion years of our evolution in about one month. It also has a very comedic side love story about two people who start out seeming like they are total oppisites, but then start to like each other.

    Operation Evolution
    Taking evolution to the battlefield. My Pastor said to me, "Evolution is a lie! I don't even need the Bible to prove that!" Well, he had my attention! For years, all I had was my personal beliefs - not factual evidence - that the God of the Bible was responsible for creation. Well, NO LONGER! I want you to consider for a moment what you would say; what you could say to a person who has been taught evolution, compelled to believe an unproved theory and quite honestly, a theory that seems to be easily swallowed hook, line and sinker. Yet this theory has more holes in it than a screen door. Honestly, most Christians don't have the ammunition - the facts - to even deliberate the argument with a novice evolutionist, for instance, a school teacher. For years I didn't have the facts to back up what I believed and, therefore, failed miserably in the evolution debate. I could quote scripture, but I was quoting it to those who had already rejected scripture! For so long, I ached to have some substantial evidence to throw on the table to challenge the untruths of evolution.
