Question.docx – Assignment:




I want you to identify the paper that was the best one of the semester, and the paper that was the worst one of all these papers below. You should name each of them, and provide just a couple of sentences describing why you choose them. Then use the scholarly search tools we listed early in the semester to find current papers (2020 onward) on the same two general topics. For example, if one of your choices is the paper that focused on Multics virtual memory, you probably wouldn’t find much that is current and specifically references Multics, but you could certainly find papers on some aspect of virtual memory. So again, find a current paper on each of those two topics. Then write the usual summary and reaction for each of them with the headings. (Note: don’t forget which papers you chose for best and worst.)
