Title: Internet Science: a Manifesto

Author: Kave Salamatian

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to describe a new emerging science: Internet science. This paper argues that cur-rent Internet is a direct by-product of Shannon’s Information theory and its master thesis. After that I attempt a general and generic definition of a network and discuss the different alternatives. This discussion results in defining a network as asset of distributed actors cooperating for exchanging information. Based on this definition, I describe how cooperation in networks happens at two conceptual levels: on the structure and the growth of the network and on the information exchange (or forwarding). After describing a potential approach to understand the growth of a network as resulting from an iterative prisoner’s dilemma game, I explained how forwarding cooperation can be divided into three classes: full cooperation, selfishness and non-rational cases. This discussion opens a discussion on the need to develop a new economical theory for understanding networks and information exchange.
