From Paul Wang
As Internet evolving over the years into our contemporary lives, the importance of the networking paradigm is beyond any question as one of the most important paradigm in computer science. Actually,the networking has always been an important paradigm ever since human being has meaningful civilization. The distribution of the electricity to users, the power grids, has been the most recognizable networking. The car dealerships are connected via a distribution marketing networks. Any cocktail party you attend is a social networking. The social networking is an indispensable humanity existence, as amplified by the Face-book. Equally importance is the gene regulation network which may provide the most important bio-informatics expected to reveal the secret of our lives and ever searching the cure of various diseases.[4a].
To a narrower scope as we focusing on attacking our problem on hand concerning Scientific Chinese Language,the Chinese Words dancing on the computer networks would be the objective of our investigation as exemplified by the works of Rongbo Wang et al.,. The dramatic development of the Internet and on-line social networking has literally borough the networking paradigms out in the front of the center stage of the computing technology and computing thinking. Knowingly or unknowingly, it becomes a habit for computing scientist confronting a problem to ask the following question; “Can we or it would be the best to solve this particular problem taking the advantage of the power of networking paradigm and to be executed on-line?
It is also interesting to reflect that the theoretical foundation for networking paradigm is the mathematics of the finite graphs and networks discovered and extensively studied by our ancestors.[4b] Equally ancient, of course is the invention of Chinese Words, strongly cognitively motivated.Chinese language, like any other languages, rely upon its semantic networks to exhibit its power of the usages. Chinese Words themselves, can be, and naturally ought to be networked, somehow. Through out the long history of the Chinese language usage, it has been well established that the Chinese language has always been making the use of the networking paradigms for the growth and evolution. It is our deep conviction that the networking paradigms will play a pivotal role in improving the Trinity of the Chinese words, Chinese language and Chinese culture and really blossomed over the strong vehicle of the Internet technology. It is also well recognized that the Chinese culture has always been emphasizing the collectivism social relationship rather than that of the individualism. This very fact itself will present in front of us a very challenging prospective and potential, no doubt!
