IT 200 Week 1 participation Lynda.com®: Cloud Computing First Look
 

Are you “afraid” of the Cloud?

 

Class

 

This is sometimes how we feel about something unknown and new, to which we are not familiar with.

 

However, the Cloud needs not to be intimidating, as we are learning in the video, the Cloud is simply a computing model, where today is currently used by services (like DropBox, Google Drive, iCloud, etc.) as third party companies host their Servers remotely, (where the equipment and SW is owned by them or a third party company).

 

They offer us storage area, some of it free initially and some paid (kind like the Post Office and the rent of P.O. boxes) where the content stored by them in their Servers (large Computers) is not at all related to their business, but only relevant for us (similar to the approach the US. Postal service takes about it, they do not care about the content of our letters or packages, they just store them and deliver them).

 

Now based on the above explanation, what are your thoughts about on why are folks afraid or not trusting of “the Cloud”?

 

Please expand with your own comments and observations here.

 

 
 

 

Becoming familiar with “The Cloud”

 

Class;

Cloud computing these days has become a very powerful model of computing; as it allows business and individuals to gain all kinds of savings on transaction activities providing flexibility for the user while lowering the costs of the support and maintenance of their Servers,(as they would not be part of our networks, but belong to the Cloud providers), where we will only pay a monthly fee or “pay per use” as we use their service offerings.

 

Now, please describe your understanding and experience (if any) using  “the Cloud” in your daily activities.

Google’s Cloud based Apps

 

Class:

 

Part of the learning process is the frustrating stage of trying to grasp some abstract concepts, but we need not to give up or become frustrated.., it takes time for our brains to process concepts, and all we have to do is be patient and persevering in our learning efforts, and with time these concepts will become more clear and logical.

 

For example here in this video we discuss “Apps”; Apps are simply “easy buttons” that connect a mobile device to a web site by one click, and the methods and programs to create them and use them are becoming more and simpler every day.

 

Could you come up with a list of your favorite Google Apps you use and how they are helpful and beneficial to you please?

Find a current article on social media that discusses different gender balance on different social networking sites.

Answer the following question:

 

 

 

Based on your experience, do you agree or disagree with what the data is showing?
 

 

 

 
 

How about Gender in Social Media?

 

Class:

Some authors noted that the gender gap was more evident at the early days of Social media; however now days, the newer generations are more “natural at it” so the gender gap will not exist in few more years in my opinion.

 

I think this, because the novelty of the WEB and Social networking is fading away, and it will be just another way of communication between humans, until telepathy comes into society in the future.

 

Meantime, what are your thoughts of the Gender issue in social media?

 

Do you have another perspective here?
