What's the difference between this and List of computing topics? If both lists are made as broad and inclusive as, say, List of astronomical topics, they would be pretty close to identical. Was it intended that the two pages would only have a small overlap, or perhaps that list of computing topics would include all the topics in this one? -- Tim Starling 15:38 May 3, 2003 (UTC)

Recent edits have partially answered my question, but it would still be nice to have a real answer. -- Tim Starling 12:41 May 5, 2003 (UTC)


Clesh is an internet related article. Perhaps someone else would like to add it. Stephen B Streater (talk) 21:41, 3 July 2010 (UTC)

Electrical Grid[edit]

The Internet is comparable to the Electrical grid - an interconnected network for delivering electricity from suppliers to consumers. It consists of generating stations that produce electrical power, high-voltage transmission lines that carry power from distant sources to demand centers, and distribution lines that connect individual customers.

The electrical grid texts do not discuss refrigerators, television, ... That is, the topic "electrical grid" does not include the thousands of appliances that rely on that grid. Internet texts should be no different. This "index" should either be revised - made internet specific, deleting applications, etc., - or moved to a different category. (talk) 08:15, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
