COMP 380—Social Networking (Sites)—3/16/2008 Notes “The World Wide Web” Difference between the web and the internet? –The internet exists without the web but not vice versus. The web is a hyper-link of documents that are accessible through the platform of the internet. The term “web” comes out of the term “world wide web.” Time Berners—Lee and hypertext, 1991: coined the term “WorldWideWeb” and “hypertext” (linkable links on various web pages). Web is: 1. Decentralized (means that there is no government entity that says what content can go on the web and what can’t; web is a free and open exchange system) 2. Organized via “addresses” (we call them “sites” but they aren’t actual “addresses”) 3. Based on the internet Risks of decentralization? Why would anyone say we need to regulate the material that goes out on the internet? Kids know how to use it and parents can’t monitor what their children view 24 hours a day.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
