  9. 9. 2-9<br />How The Internet Works<br />The information superhighway or infobahn was a popular term used through the 1990s to refer to digital communication systems and the internet telecommunications network<br />Al Gore, United States Senator and later Vice-President, strongly influenced the term<br />
  10. 10. 2-10<br />How The Internet Works<br />Barriers <br />Affordability<br />Lack of open access<br />Lack of freedom of speech<br />Undercapacity<br />Complexity<br />Incompatible laws<br />Lack of privacy<br />Security<br />Irresponsible use<br />Can everyone use the Internet?<br />Should marketers want everyone online?<br />How vulnerable is the Internet?<br />

  15. 15. 2-15<br />Internet Management<br />The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)<br />It was created by the U.S. government<br />It is a nonprofit corporation responsible for allocating IP addresses and managing the domain name system<br />ICANN accredits companies that register domain names for business and organizations<br />
  16. 16. 2-16<br />Internet Management<br />Self-regulation<br />Another mechanism for managing the Internet activities is self-regulation, which frequently is undertaken to forestall the need for government regulation<br />Another form of internet self-regulation is industry-specific <br />
  17. 17. 2-17<br />Internet Management<br />Like every system operating on the Internet matrix, the Web adheres to the TCP/IP protocol<br />It also requires a unique protocol, HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP), for exchanging HTML files, including webpages, images, text, sound, video and graphics<br /><ul><li>It </li></li></ul><li>2-18<br />Internet Management<br />Web pages are distinguished by <br /><ul><li>Adjustable size (larger or smaller to fit a computer screen)

Com, net, gov and the two digit Country Codes (CC)<br />Secondary level names = second level domain appear directly before the Country Code<br />www.co.uk.<br />
  32. 32. 2-24<br />How The Web Works<br />In 2002, seven names were added:<br />Aero (air transport industry)<br />Biz. (business)<br />Coop (Cooperation)<br />Info (unrestricted use)<br />Museum (Museums)<br />Name (individual) <br />Pro (lawyers and other professions)<br />
  33. 33. 2-25<br />How The Web Works<br />The net regulator ICANN has &quot;internationalised domain names&quot; in non-Latin characters<br /> Egypt and Saudi Arabia have announced their intentions to apply for the first Arabic domains<br />Egypt new domain name would be &quot;.masr&quot; written in the Arabic alphabet<br />

The State of Being Digital <br />Something is digital when all of its properties and information are stored as a string of zeroes and ones<br />Those zeroes and ones are called bits<br />Everything on the Internet is digital<br />The falling cost of digital technology is one of the most powerful forces in the modern economy<br />
  39. 39. Being Digital <br />NOCOLAS NEGROPENTE<br />
  40. 40. Understanding Moore’s Law <br /> Intel co-founder Gordon Moore observed that each generation of computer memory chips – released about every 18 months – could pack the same technology into half the space<br />Source: AP/World Wide Photos<br />
  41. 41. Understanding Moore’s Law<br />Moore’s Law applies broadly to computing and technology costs<br />Computer speed since the 1970s has increased roughly 75 billion times<br />The cost of technology and storage, meanwhile, has dropped sharply<br />
  42. 42. Putting Moore’s Law to Work<br />Sun Microsystems as early as 1995 saved hundreds of thousands of dollars by moving to online customer support<br />Online software distribution saved Sun an estimated $1.5 million per quarter compared to traditional distribution<br />

  46. 46. Key Features of Digital Environments<br />Encyclopedic: Low cost allows almost endless storage capacity<br />
  47. 47. Digital Convergence<br />Cheap and powerful digital technology has contributed to the merging of industries, technology and content<br />
  48. 48. Digital Convergence<br />One crucial area: convergence of computing, communications and media content<br />
