This paper from 1995 describes the importance of anonymity on the Internet. 18 Years later I still believe its extremely important that ones personal information on everything he or she does must be protected. No one has the right to check out and take information from my Facebook page, my Soundcloud, my Instagram. Here is something that scares me, I am an avid redditor, On Reddit, people have main accounts, and ‘throwaway’ accounts so that people wont see certain stories on their main account… not everyone does this so sometimes, people will post a story on there main account then delete it.
This leads into IP, Intellectual property. Here in Canada we have the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) which defines IP as “Legal rights that result from intellectual activity in the industrial, scientific, literary and artistic fields”
The beauty in the Arduino open source electronics is astounding. What people are doing and creating, sharing, of all ages too! ‘Sharing is Caring’ creates so much knowledge to the world. And i honestly look forward to the future.
There are many types: Phishing, Spoofing, Cyber Stalking, Cyber Bullying, Spam, Identity Theft… just a whole bunch of evilness really. But thankfully there are certain things one can do to avoid this. Collusion, a Chrome extension can help a wee bit with this.
This video was shared on the online lecture, other than the horrible music, it gives a nice introduction to the world of Cloud Computing. After watching this pro Cloud Computing video, it got me thinking… what happens if a Cloud rains so to speak, if it just fails?
Next video on the online lecture is Eli the Computer guy, who within the first five minutes… he answers my question. Good guy Eli. …. Oo Just had a Dejavu.
This is my good friend, Steve, may he rest in peace, discussing and introducing the cloud 16 years ago. In 1997, he says he lost in the past 7 years, NO DATA. nothing.. this is back in 1990. what a boss. I still lose my work… 😥
Discussion Question: Describe what you see as the personal or professional benefits or drawbacks that cloud computing offers you. Given these benefits and drawbacks, do you now think differently about cloud computing than you used to? And would you recommend cloud computing solutions to others?
The benefits are too obvious to state,access being the main one. I always thought the idea of Cloud Computing was fantastic, but just one thing. What happens when the power is out? or if not power, just your internet? I think its a wee drastic to say there is no need for hardware in terms of storing memory if the network is available key word being IF. internet is down, and you don’t have the work you want saved on a physical drive, you might have.. no you will have issues.
All examples of internet access. I store/use google docs almost exclusively now when working on projects. I use Skype to communicate with my Boss in Germany. I use Dropbox to transfer and store large files, usually music related. And Prezi, good ol’ prezi.
Now to organize myself, for time management and completing tasks for my own work or group work I have found the best way. Make your life into a game. I implore all gamers to check out HabitRPG.
