Postal Service Vs. Email

In this blog I will be discussing the postal service, and email, and the differences between the two. Well first off, to define the postal service, it is mail sent from one person to another, through a government run program, and it is delivered by people. To define email, it is mail sent via the internet, and it is almost instant, with no use for human involvement. To compare the two, email is instantaneous, no people involved, costs nothing, while the us postal service takes time, can get lost, costs money, and in general just more work. Now you may be asking, why don't we just switch completely to email? Well to simply straight it, email still cannot transport mass, meaning it cannot send things such as presents for Christmas. This may happen in the future, but not for a very, very long time! However, the internet is used to send things such as gifts, just take a look at the very popular amazon. We use amazon to find a purchase, enter a mailing address,…

A Visit by Erik

Erik Hanberg, visited my class and explained to us what he had done throughout his life to become successful.

This made me think of what I could use the internet for to make me successful. I started thinking of how I hike weekly, and have been to many amazing places. Well I figured if I took a social media such as Instagram, then start writing blogs for hiking compani…
What do I expect from my class Living and Working in the Virtual World? Well I guess I would have to look into what we are learning and tie it into what my major is. For starters, I am interested in majoring in the field of cyber security, which also is a reason why I chose to take this class. I figured that if I am going to major into a field that deals with computers, I might as well learn some history about them. What I really expect to learn from this class is how the internet works, and the justice side of internet. For example, what's legal, and illegal. For instance, what is the silver lining between what you can do, and cannot due on the internet, and what are the punishments if you do get in trouble with the justice system? Is it just a fee, or can it be prison time? I guess that all depends on the crime done however. Basically, in this class, I expect to learn all this and more, I want to be filled with knowledge so I don't have any surprises sneaking up on me when …
