Intro sentences and ACM quote?Edit

The first few sentences of this article are a close paraphrase of the ACM Block quote in the "definition" section immediately following. To have nearly identical text twice in a row, once quoted and once not, feels jarring and redundant. I'm not sure exactly how to fix this. Is there a problem with just using the ACM quote to start the article, but adding wikilinks to the topics? Otherwise I'd say just rewrite those first few sentences from scratch. They can probably be clearer and shorter anyway. Emeraldemon (talk) 20:06, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

@Emeraldemon:, we can do better than this! And should. I'll have a go. yoyo (talk) 19:49, 5 July 2018 (UTC)

Odd link in the Computer Network sectionEdit

That section's first sentence contained a link to the Absolute (philosophy) article, when the topic is actually computer connection. That seems like quite a logical jump to me. I think a link to Computer network would be much more appropriate. I changed it.
