The greatest WordPress.com site in all the land!

With the grow of the Internet everybody can publish something , however, it is necessary you have a knowledge about the Web Authoring Technologies such as HTML, HTML Editors, Content Managements Systems and Social Media. I will give a very brief history of them.

images (4)HTML :

You need a computer language to publish anything for global distribution and HTML is a language of World Wide Web and it was created in 1993 by Tim Berners-Lee and others version came from this one such as HTML 2.0 (1998) HTML 3.0 (1995) HTML 3.2 (1997), however, the most used one was HTML 4.01 being an official one in December 1998. But it was rewrite after being an XML language. It made contents easily shared across applications, making XML powerful. After W3C created an XML using HTML 4.01 called XHTML.

Most of the pages on the web today were made using HTML 4.01 or XHTML. You find the use in:

  •  To publish on line documents;
  •  Design Forms;
  •  Include:  spread sheets, video clips, sound clip in their documents. Learn more about …

downloadHTML Editors :

After the creation of HTML language, the webmasters created tools called HTML editors that could create and modify HTML documents making easy to display and read documents. There are three categories of them: Text editors (example Notepad) , WYSIWYG editors (examples are Adobe Muse and First Page)  and Online editors (Snap Editor and Tiny MCE). See List of editors…

untitled (3)Content Management System (CMS) :

It is a computer program used by webmasters with procedures that enable to manage work flows, contribute and share data, control access and reduce duplicate. The CMS is not new stuff its history started when the internet was released to the public. The first CMS was released by Microsoft in 1990’s and after that many companies developed and released their own software.

In 2000-2005 the internet was having problems and CMS’ were no longer supported except the Amazon site taking off. In 2006-2007 CMS packages were separated in three groups, the first one called Software Editing and the second was Online Editing over the internet and the last group called “Hibrid” allowing users to work online. Nowadays, one of the use is in commercial area, example is s commercial package E360’s CMS NZ. Learn more…

Nowadays, it is hard to think of life without social networking where you can easily keep track on what your contacts are doing even if they are a miles away from you. Examples are Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.

Social Media was developed in 1971 when the first email was sent and in 1978 the BBs or Bulletin Board System was the first one to let users to interact one to another.

Tim Ellis & Tom Truscott created the USENET differently from the BBS because no central server, but from this came the inspiration to groups we know today like the Yahoo! Groups and Facebook.

In 1994 the first social networking site was create called Geocities and the next TheGlobe.com was launched to public and in 1997 AOL and Sixdegrees.com launched.

From those, others sites were created like Friendster being very popular in America, and MySpace just cloned it and Facebook just followed it.

Today, it is hard to predict what will be the next but I do not think people will stop to use social media. Read more about …

Business Technologies

With the growth of the Internet, the companies need help to keep running their businesses in away they can think bigger in the competitive market.

Supply Chain Management

Nowadays, the companies need to have a good management of the flow of goods such as to know what you have storage, to do inventories, and information about the goods in general to customers. That’s why Supply Chain Management is important.If you are interested to know how this system works, I can tell you a basic idea: It works by moving and sharing information between the departments from suppliers to the end of product users.

Examples could be: Coca-Cola supply chain management and universities such as Arizona State University.

Benefits: Synchronizing the supply of products ; Costs are saved when the inventory is to be made. More about this system …

Online Communications

Gmail is a free email service by Google which is the powerful search engine on the internet. It can be used sending and exchange email to many people. One benefit is that there are no pop-ups or untargeted banners ads in Gmail (that’s great you do not need to worry with that). Other thing I find amazing is that you can create files and share them with friends, let them to see or edit, comment but just if I want. And also since 2010 Google released Gmail Chat and call phones. It is such an amazing email service and you should use if you are smart. Learn More …

           

History of Internet

In this post you can find briefly information about The History of the Internet..

internet25ARPANET :

The granfather to the Internet, established in 1969, ARPANET was a large wide-area network created by the United States Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA). The first data exchange was at UCLA and  Standford Research Institute. Under the Arpanet others innovations occurred such as email in 1971; telnet as a remote connection service in 1972; and file transfer protocol(FTP) in 1973. Consequently more people had access and what I understand is that Arpanet was a backbone to the internet we know today.  Read more …

TCP : 

TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is the basic communication language or protocol of the Internet. The internet and TCP/IP were developed together, however, the TCP was developed as a part of the research network by The United States Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA). In 1973 the first version of modern TCP was written; than revised and formally documented in RFC 675 in December 1974. “Read More …”

MiTeC-Internet-History-BrowserWeb Browser :

 It is a very useful tool to researches on the internet created by Tim Berners Lee in 1990 and it is called WorldWideWeb enable ordinary people to be able to do searches and take advantage of tons of add-ons . The information resource identified could be a video,image,web page or other kind of content. There are many web browser examples : AWeb (1996-to now) , DocZilla (2003-2005 but terminated) and Internet Explorer (1995- to now).  “Read More…”

untitled (4)The first web page

 In 1991 just one year after Tim Berners Lee created the web browser the first web page was created by him who was working for CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) again just giving information about enable users to search and create own websites and pages. However, the first web page published was in August 6, 1991. And the first web server was also written by Tim Berners Lee called CERN HTTPd.  “Read more”

imagesEmail :

 What I found out it was the email is older than arpanet and even the internet because it is just a kind of writing. Ray Tomlinson, computer engineer invented it in 1971 enable users to send simple messages to another user. The first important email standard was called SMTP or simple message transfer. And it still very important way of communication being widely used. It has been updated taking us from Arpanet to the Internet.
