History[ edit ] Antecedent theoretical developments[ edit ] The Human Resources field evolved first in 18th century in Europe. It built on a simple idea by Robert Owen and Charles Babbage during the industrial revolution.
When Morris applied for re-admission a few years later, Cornell refused to accept him. Morris earned his Ph. Bibliography on the Morris Worm There are a number of technical publications that discuss the Morris worm and its effect on computers that constituted the Internet: Available from a website in Canada and also from Purdue.
Spafford, The Internet Worm Program: Available from Purdue University. The June issue Vol. This virus was released in three shareware programs: Blumenthal wrote the virus and inserted it in the three programs.
Blumenthal also created an anonymous account on a Cornell computer, so that apparently untraceable file transfers could be made. The initial victims downloaded the programs from Stanford and infected their computers.
As these victims shared their infected files with other users, they unwittingly spread the virus to additional victims. The MBDF virus was a relatively benign program that did not directly harm the victim's data files.
However, this virus could cause harm in three different ways: The virus caused some programs to crash when the user selected an item from the menu bar.
If the user assumes the system has hung, and reboots the Macintosh while this is occurring, the entire system file will be corrupted and an entire reload of system software must then be performed. If the victim rebooted the computer during those several seconds, application files on the computer could become corrupted.
To recover from such problems, the victim first needed to run anti-virus software to delete the MBDF virus, then any corrupted files e.
Depending on the skill of the victim in identifying which files were damaged, the recovery process could take hours or days. Compared with other malicious programs, the damage from the MBDF virus was relatively small.
The only reason that I mention the MBDF virus in this essay is that it is one of a very few cases in which the author and distributors of a malicious program were arrested and punished for their crime. Experts in computer security at several universities promptly traced the origin of the MBDF virus to Cornell University.
Pilgrim cooperated with the police, told them the details of what had happened, and incriminated Blumenthal. As reports of infected computers were received from all over the USA, Japan, Europe, Australia, and Canada, the district attorney contemplated increasing the charges to a felony, because he could prove a larger harm than what had initially been apparent.
One of them was granted immunity from criminal prosecution in exchange for his testimony. The other, who will be identified here by the fictitious name Doe, was indicted along with Blumenthal and Pilgrim, but Doe later had his record expunged.
The indictment included four counts of first-degree computer tampering a felonyand also seven counts of attempted computer tampering a misdemeanorplus one count of second-degree attempted computer tampering.
In addition, Blumenthal alone was charged with felony counts of forgery and falsifying business records, for his creation of the anonymous computer account at Cornell University.Adam, Very interesting article.
Much of the management science is looking more and more at bottom up decision-making as opposed to top-down for the reasons you mention.
F. W. Taylor & Scientific Management by Vincenzo Sandrone Under Taylor's management system, factories are managed through scientific methods rather than by use of the empirical "rule of thumb" so widely prevalent in the days of the late nineteenth century when F.

Your liver is located in the upper right-hand portion of your abdominal cavity, just beneath the diaphragm and on top of the stomach. It is a dark reddish-brown color and weighs approximately 3 lbs.
Abstract. The advent of agriculture has ushered in an unprecedented increase in the human population and their domesticated animals. Farming catalyzed our transformation from primitive hunter-gatherers to sophisticated urban dwellers in just 10, years.
Introduction This essay contains a description of several famous malicious computer programs (e.g., computer viruses and worms) that caused extensive harm, and it reviews the legal consequences of each incident, including the nonexistent or lenient punishment of the program's author.
