W3

April 16th, 2008

I was really dissapointed with the last reading. I don’t know if it was just bad timing when I read it last week, but I hardly understood it. I didn’t even make the connection, that W3 stands for world wide web. So I was really surprised when Dr. C exclaimed that this text was so great to understand. The discussion brought more light into it. And I know am even more convinced that I should have read it when I was less tired, but I still thought the other readings were more interesting.

This whole WWW thing did remind me though of the command screen and the huge floppy disks quickly being replaced by the smaller once and today computers don’t even have a floppy disk drive anymore.

What is really interesting and I have no answer for this, in Germany around the time this article was written banks started offering free internet courses on the weekends for their clients or during the week for school classes. Why banks? Anyway, that’s how I learned to email was through a class at my local bank.
