Introductory Remarks

Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years, 9 months ago

In the beginning...


There was the Internet with telnet, gopher, and Veronica. In 1990 came HYTELNET, a directory of telnet addresses and then the World Wide Web. The Web started to take off with the introduction of the Lynx browser in 1992 and really took off with the popular graphical Mosaic web and gopher browser released in 1993.


Web authors used HTML code <a href="http://www.midyork.org/webcat/bookmarks.html"> Bookmarks </a> to create simple text only Web pages for Lynx [example] and code <img src="../Resources/bcd_bk50.jpg"> to add images [example]. Humans could do this, but it got a lot easier after HTML editors were developed, especially WYSIWYG editors that were similar to word processing software such as Word.


Then, in the new millennium...


The masters of servers and users of the Internet together brought forth Web 2.0. It's all based on content management software on websites to create fun, easy to use web services. People can communicate and collaborate online and create web pages without "techie" knowledge of code or software.


We will explore using the most popular of these web services ... so far - at anytime, anywhere, a new service could pop up and catch on like wildfire. Be prepared by learning how to use Web 2.0.


Exercise (worksheetb.txt):


What do you want to communicate? Ideas from participants


"Communication is a process by which information is exchanged between or among individuals..."- Wikipedia


Put yourself in your library. What signs or lists are posted? What handouts, questionnaries, library newsletters are available in print? If you had time, what would you produce in print? What would you like to be in the newspaper about your library? What projects do you have going on that you would like to tell people about? What are you telling people on the telephone?
