Internet Blogging the Changing Computer Term Paper
Excerpt from Term Paper :
The Web has grown increasingly fast and sophisticated, as podcasts, streaming video, and other movie-like aspects of entertainment have become part of the Web experience. Features such as YourTube allow persons to see videos, homemade by uses, over the web. As digital cameras and video cameras become more common, the language of the Web and the media exposed upon Web blogs are sure to expand in the future, and to incorporate more visual elements.
As technology changes and expands into every day life, the language used to describe Internet technology is likely to become more blurred and less specific.
One example, previously discussed, is the fact that the Internet and World Wide Web are often incorrectly used as synonyms. Another example is how the verb "blog" has been modified to become a verb, so to "blog" is to write a blog, as well as the document of a blog itself. Blogs still traditionally refer to text-based entries, however, although they are more likely to contain photographs than previously, as photographs can now be easily uploaded to the Web through digital cameras, making use of the Web as a form of communication and advertisement easier and more popular than ever. The use of multimedia technology and computer programming is likely to become more and more accessible.
Section 3: Project Management
The System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is the process of developing information systems through investigation, analysis, design, implementation and maintenance. ("SDLC," 2006, Webopedia) For example, a business might desire to reconfigure its promotional Web page
or blog where the business owners posted updates about the product, and modify its current use of its software to include more visual elements. The business might first investigate the various technologies that it can use, from design, to templates that support graphics and photographs, to the feasibility of including streaming videos or podcasts as part of the page, and determine the requirements specifics needed to realize this vision. It would also consider the target users of the page, if they were likely to have high-speed connections that were sophisticated to view the variety of accompaniments. Then, after creating an architectural design or blueprint for the page, the constructors would create a beta model, or 'dummy run' of the page and examine if a variety of users could connect to the page with all due speed, and how to correct or debug these problems. Also, the frequency of words used on the page turning up in Google search engines would also be examined, to insure that there was a high traffic of target users. Then, after implementation there would be a final period of system testing and analysis of how many 'hits' the page received, and how to increase traffic and minimized technical problems.
