HowStuffWorks "Internet vs. World Wide Web" - 0 views

  • The Web isn't the only system out there, but it's the most popular and widely used. (Examples of ways to access the Internet without using HTTP include e-mail and instant messaging.)
  • The World Wide Web, on the other hand, is the system we use to access the Internet
  •  
    This article explains the difference between the internet and the WWW by describing the internet as a network of computers and the WWW as one of the modes we use to access certain files within this network. It also states that-- as we had discussed in class-- though the WWW is probably the most widely-used mode of accessing the internet, other ways, such as through email and instant messaging, are also available.

Are These People Building Their Own Internet? - 0 views

  •  
    Fascinating article on grassroots alternatives to paying a company like Verizon for Internet access. If enough of these community-built networks come into being and link to each other, we'll have a brand-new Internet!

    A couple of people wanted to do research on Aaron Swartz, who was arrested under the Computer Fraud Act for unauthorized use of MIT's network to download "all of JSTOR," presumably for rerelease onto the open web. Here's an article about a forthcoming documentary on him.

    I've added a new avatar for our course Diigo group. It's based on a 1974 map of ARPAnet, the first "network of networks," and thus the precursor of today's Internet. I got it from Wikimedia Commons, which is a great source for all kinds of media that you're allowed to reproduce on the Internet.

The World of Social Media 2013 - 2 views

  •  
    It can be a little bit of off-topic but this is a very interesting video that my communication professor showed class before. The video basically tells you how much the internet and the social media affect our lives these days. Even though we have already known that the internet is hugely influential, you'll probably be surprised while you watch this video.
