(for example; 207.140.138.101) IP numbers are difficult for people to remember, so many organizations will register a domain names which can be mapped to specific IP Numbers.

  15. 15. Text Messaging • Text messaging, or texting, is the exchange of brief written text messages between two or more mobile phones or fixed or portable devices over a phone network. While the original term was derived from referring to messages sent using the Short Message Service (SMS) originated from Radio Telegraphy, it has since been extended to include messages containing image, video, and sound content (known as MMS messages). • The sender of a text message is known as a texter, while the service itself has different colloquialisms depending on the region: it may simply be referred to as a text in North America, Australia, the Philippines and the United Kingdom, an SMS in most of mainland Europe, and a TMS or SMS in the Middle East and Asia.
  16. 16. Digital Netiquette
  17. 17. Top 10 Texting Guidelines • Common courtesy still rules. Contrary to popular belief, composing an SMS while you're in a face-to-face conversation with someone is just about as rude as taking a voice call. • Remember that SMS is informal. SMS shouldn't be used for formal invitations or to dump your girlfriend or boyfriend. The casualness of SMS diminishes the strength and meaning of the message. • Don't get upset if you don't get a reply. Before you text someone and get frustrated at the lack of a response, be sure that they're familiar with how to use the service, and that their carrier will accept messages from yours. • Be aware of your tone. It is extremely difficult to discern tone in text messages, just as in e-mail. What seems to you to be a completely innocuous message may be grossly misinterpreted by the recipient, causing certain discomfort if not irreparable harm. • Don't SMS while you're driving. Talking on the phone is bad enough. You won't know what hit you - or what you hit - if you are pounding out a message on your keyboard. • Leave the slang to your friends. Don't expect your stodgy superiors at work to be hip to the lingo of the SMS streets. • Remember that SMS can be traced. Don't think your messages are Anonymous. • Be conscientious of others' schedules. Don't assume that because you are awake, working, not busy, or sober that the person you're texting is as well. Many a pleasant slumber have been interrupted by recurring "beep- beep...beep-beeps" of messages. • If it's immediate, make a voice call. If you can't get through and your text message is ignored, there's probably a good reason. There are still some times when people don't even have a thumb free to respond. • Remember that your phone does have an off button. There are very, very few things in the world that absolutely cannot wait.
  18. 18. Digital Literacy • In photojournalism the rules are clear. To alter the content of a photograph "in any way that deceives the public" is wrong, says the digital manipulation code of ethics of the National Press Photographers Association. • Ideally, a photograph is the untouched, unmanipulated transcript of what was there. • Larry Gross, co-editor of "Image Ethics in the Digital Age" lists cropping and the angle of the photograph as two other common means to alter editorial content.

Explore the possibility of a larger, implied subject beyond just the immediate, obvious subject itself. Discuss the context / occasion of the image. • 2.

Examine any political implications of the image. Could the image be considered propaganda? Analyze how the image furthers an agenda. • 3. A – Audience: Identify the forum (magazine, newspaper, website) for which the image was created. Analyze how the original placement of the image is connected to audience. Determine whether the audience has changed and / or expanded over time. Describe the characteristics of the primary and secondary audience. • 4. T – Tone: Analyze the tone that the creator (photographer / artist / cartoonist) of the image has toward his / her subject. Explain how the tone is communicated to the audience. • 5. E – Effect: Analyze the intended effect the image has on the audience. Explore the possible unintended effects of the image. • 6.
