Wouldn't you like to know?

At first, I thought to myself this project is just going to be more work to add to my senior year of high school. After a few days I began looking over some of the stuff that this project deals with and I started to wonder. I never really thought about where the internet came from. I knew, obviously, that someone had to have created it, but it never occurred to me who actually sat down and did it.

Virtual communication can basically be described as the modern technology through which the… Continue

How I feel about this project and what I understand.

I've recently been assigned to do this project. My topic is Mobile and Ubiquitous. I know some stuff so far about this topic. There is new technology of phones, computers and any other personal devices coming out everyday. Most of the things they are starting to come out with are usually wireless and touch screen. Im looking forward to doing this topic because I would like to learn more about this stuff and how it works.

What do I think?

What do I think about this project? Well . . . at first I didn't think that this project was going to be that interesting but then I realized that I always thought that it would be cool to meet people around the world. I always thought it would be cool to meet someone like from England, Italy, or even someone from the United States. I mean how else would you be able to talk to someone around the world unless you actually knew them. My project is the history of the world wide web and so far I… Continue

First entry

I´m searching for good pages with good information and helpful links for my topic. Now, I try to make summaries of the tagged pages, but my first problem is to translate them or to build senseful sentences. Most of the links are in german and i have problems to find good links. I have to search for more links to be good informed and to write a good wiki entry. I´m a little bit depressed about that fact because it takes lot of time to drag on.

At first I wasn´t enthused about that project… Continue

Blog 1.0 Introducing Michael BallHACK

Hello non-sense-nothing-to-do-with-your-free-time-reader,

for the first time the project was confusing because no one had

an idea what to do, but after our teacher Mr. Otto

explained it to us I felt very confident.

I am also excited about working together with the guys

from Quatar and the U.S. but they don't answer a lot and especially

they don't answer in our Wiki. But I am confident they will and

we will have a good time.

What i did for the… Continue

When we started our project at the start it was a little but difficult and we needed a lot of help from our teacher Salim, and he was a big help, but in the in the end we got used.

To be honest our group has strength and it's that every single member of our group worked well with everyone and no one in our group worked alone. So I think that’s a good strength.

Also our group was forced to slow down by some obstacles like the slow internet, and not… Continue
