Panel Discussion Reflection: Creation and Consumption

This weeks panel discussed a wide range of topics that we all are familiar with and can relate to. It discussed commons things that the majority of the people who surf the web are aware about. A common occurrence in our society is the “seflie”. I’ve learned that the “selfie” has been created as some type of movement to “take a picture of oneself”. Although, taking a picture of oneself has gone on for many years and generations now, the idea of essentially taking a picture of yourself and the purpose behind taking a picture of yourself has changed. Another topic covered was about how the hashtag came about. In the discussion I learned that it came about to allow others to be able to categories certain topics so that things were easily referenced. This group covered topics that were very relevant to most of the students in the class, probably all the students, seeing that we do all use the internet. The group was very knowledgeable about the topics covered in what was created in the comings of the internet and how the things on the internet are being consumed.

Panel Discussion Reflection: How It Has Evolved

In this discussion the group discussed how what we use today has evolved from the use of the internet. The group went into depth about dating sites. From this discussion I’ve learned the there are numerous amounts of different kinds of dating sites. The dating sites has taken off from a personal level to a more cyber interaction. Generally these dating sites are for people looking to find the right one. Now it has evolved into people looking for “the one they need” By that the discussion introduced different kinds of data sites, such as, farmers only, data sites based on race, etc, The group also showed a video of a comedian who talked about his involvement on a dating site and how different it is using a dating site than meeting on person. This panel went into great detail about dating sites which allowed the class to understand how the internet has affected how the common uses society uses has evolved.

Panel Discussion Reflection: How it Works

The panel that discussed “How It Works” touched on how the internet literally works. In class we discussed the architecture of the internet, what powers the internet, and how the internet came to be how it is today. More so, this discussion went into depth on what the internet encompasses. This panel covered search engines, language, the new web, and more. Questions that were discussed involved the topics “what is the internet?”, “what are search engines intended for?”, “what’s the difference between the new web and the old web?”, and other relevant questions. I feel that the panel covered a good stretch of topics that hit all the main points the class may have been concerned about. The group showed relevant videos that allowed a good understanding of what they were trying to cover. I was made aware of how search engines worked, what the internet means, how the internet is being used, and what generally makes up the internet.

Panel Discussion Week 2: How it Works

HEY Y’ALL! This is panel discussion week 2 on ‘How it Works’. This week we will discuss the basis on how the internet works. Each of us will gear towards a specific topic in relation to the internet. Things we will discuss will primarily be about what we use everyday on the internet. Have you ever thought about what you use everyday on the internet?

Consider the following questions before class tomorrow.

  1. What is the internet?
  2. How does the internet work?
  3. What can you do with the internet?
  4. Why do you resort to the internet instead of outside resources? (Shopping, yellow pages, reviews, news, etc.)
  5. Is the internet a physical thing or an idea in what we use?
  6. How are we benefiting from the internet and how is the internet benefiting from us using it?
  7. In what ways do we take the internet for granted?

Panelists: Kaitlin, Dalina, Hannah, Matt.

What is the Internet?

I’m sure we all can relate to this video.. This was literally everyone the first day of class (just in kid form lol).
We should question ourselves after each week of class :

  1. What is the internet?
  2. How does the internet work?
  3. What can you do with the internet?
  4. Why do you resort to the internet instead of outside resources? (Shopping, yellow pages, reviews, news, etc.)
  5. Is the internet a physical thing or an idea in what we use?
  6. How are we benefiting from the internet and how is the internet benefiting from us using it?

This video summarizes how the internet works. It encompasses all the necessary tools in order for the “internet” to essentially work. I found that there’s a lot that goes into the internet such as, networking, data transfer, connections, IP address, and so much more that allows a user to literally enter the net. In order to get a grasp of the internet’s means, you would have to explorer the things in which the internet is made up of.

Where Wizards Stay Up Late in Relation to “How It Works”

I’ve come to find that after reading past the first few chapters of the readings the book has gone into depths with how the internet works. This is relevant to what I am studying in class, “How It Works”. More specifically, I have angled my studies towards search engines. If you take a look at the CMAP I created for “How It Works” , you will find that search engines and the internet intertwines with each other.  Included are links that will show you what makes up search engines and useful information on literally how it works. Enjoy!
