Edelstein (1981) noted that in its beginnings, users had to understand how and where the data were stored; and data could not be shared by different applications, so that resulted in much duplication of data and effort. However, soon computer systems were developed to permit standardization of data-access methods and to allow some sharing of data. Van Brunt (1980) noted that despite the increasing use of computer technology in the 1970s, there were not yet any notable effects of computers on a physician’s mode of practice.

12 1 Prologue: The Evolution of Computer Databases Mouse selector-devices were invented in 1968 to effectively use a computer display with a graphical-user interface to select and move data on a display; not only up, down, and sideways, but also diagonally. The mouse was held with one hand and rolled across a flat surface to direct its pointer on the screen; and buttons were pressed on the mouse to control its activity. A microprocessor inside the mouse transmitted a packet of data when it detected a change in the position of the mouse or in the state of its buttons.

Google also developed an advertising business that sold a few lines of text linked to Web queries; and in 2010 Google reported having several billion queries each day (Gomes 2010). Similarly, Wikipedia evolved to collect information that was constantly updated by anonymous users. In the 2000s You Tube, Google, and Facebook with their video services became popular social networks. In 2010 Facebook was estimated to have 500-million active users in its online networking service despite its laxness in protecting the privacy of personal data, a problem that became more evident as Google gathered images from unsecured Wi-Fi nets in peoples’ homes (Wi-Fi 2010).
