Can you believe that the Internet is about 30 years old.  We are going to examine algorithms that changed our world.  We will first define what an algorithm is.  A few computer labs at William & Mary were connected in the late 80's to the NSFnet (earlier Arpanet, later Internet.)  In the mid-90's the campus was wired.  You will be asked to help decide the order of the topics: computability, data compression), databases, digital signatures, encryption, error correcting codes, page rank, pattern recognition, and search.  I do not expect to cover all of the algorithms.
