Hardware What type of hardware do you need to access the internet? Here is a list of thing you will need to access the internet through a phone line The equipment you will need to get on the internet is you will need a computer and a service provider (some one like BT or who ever you pay the internet bill to) so now you should of hade a router from the service provider once you have this router you will need to connect all of the wires to the router and computer unless you have wireless then you will connect by your computer wirelessly. (You should have a little introduction book with the wireless rougher) The web is internet pages also it is the start of the addresses www. Means World Wide Web Mail is where some one sends you a message over the internet and you can send mail back if you wont but you have to be carful when receiving mail because some people put viruses into mail so you should make sure you know who the person sending you the mail is. A proxy sever is where you can go onto websites that your computer recognised as it should be blocked and a proxy sever will confuse the computer and make it think it is a page that is acceptable. A router is very important it is the bridge between your service provider and you. The service provider let you use the internet using the rougher it will allow your rougher to connect to the internet.


Software Some of the software you need to access the internet is the actual internet explore and you should all ready have this on your computer then you can download a different internet explore like Google chrome or fire fox and many more. Browsing is a thing on the internet that every one does it is just looking on the internet browsing through the web but there are also search engines which makes it a lot easier by typing in a few words about what you wont to find and the will be pages and pages of thing related to that word. There are lots of them so that you can find one that you like the most but they all do the same thing find what you are looking for.

Then you go down the list and find an available name if none of the names available you will need to use a different name.

Web 2.0 & Blogging The meaning web 2.0 is the second generation is a lot better than the first because on web 1.0 you could only read in the web based like communications, like facebook, blogs and many more social networking sites. Blogging has been going on for over 10 year, but it has slowly been growing and it has now having a big impact to most people’s lives. It is that popular that even many celebrities are blogging like lady Gaga and Katy Perry. Blogging is where you can have your own blogging page and you can put information on it like, what you have been doing also you can put pictures of you and people you have been with like if you go on holiday you could take photos and instead of going to all you friends house you could just put it on your blog page and your friends can go on your blogging page and look at you holiday photos and comment, also you can play games with your friends. Also you can just talk about how you feel. There are lots of blogging sites but hear are a few sites that I know is http://twitter.com/ , http://www.facebook.com/ also there is http://www.myspace.com/, http://www.bebo.com/ These are just some of the blogging websites that you can go on and make your own blogging page. Places you can go to blog are www.facebook.com , http://twitter.com/, http://www.myspace.com/, http://www.bebo.com/ if you click on any of these links you will go to the front page and there will be a little sing up bit where you can sing up to create your own blogging page.


Online Applications An online application is software running on a Web platform. Online applications can perform many tasks and provide various different solutions. It can provide you, your clients and employees a way of managing projects, sharing and distributing information and performing other tasks all from one web based platform, accessible from anywhere, all that’s required is an internet connection. (I have got this paragraph from http://networkstrategics.com/online-application-development.html to find out more clicks on the website) Online applications are not the same as cloud computing because cloud computing you can go on any computer do some work save it on the cloud computing website, then you can go home and go onto the cloud computing website and save it onto your home computer without a need for a memory stick. This web address (http://www.go2web20.net/) has lots of online applications that you can learn about and use this is what the front page should look like.
