My first Meme (pingback and trackback)

When did I start using Internet? I think it coincides with the economic change in Argentina ( 1 peso = 1 dollar) in the late 90's. I started using e-mailing. I have friedns and family living abroad or in other cities, and they usually complain about the fact that I am pretty lazy for writing letters and going to the post office. So, e-mailing was a solution for me. A really turning point took place in 2001 when I was invited to an on line course on " How to evalute websites" carried out by another Argentinean - Prof. Norma Scagnoli- working at the University of Illinois. She introduced me into the virtual world and there I met one of my dearest cyberfriends: Prof. Dafne Gonzalez. From that moment my virtual life started. I bagan exploring the net and that same year I opened my firs e-group: English Virtual Community. My first steps on the Internet were really awful. I used to have dial up connection, so my experience was a bit poor. I could not spend much time on line and some websites were too heavy to download. Fortunatelly, my dial-up connection times have finiched and with broad band connection I can surf the net wherever and whenever I want. This year has been another turning point. I began blogging and working with the Webmatrix Project group.

We will try to do pingback and trackback between this meme and the ones belonging to the Writing Matrix people listed below. If you want to read about this topic, please, go to Matías's blog .

Hi, my dear Nelba! How did I get started? well, I was doing my postgrade studies on Educational informatics back in 2002, at that time educative software was ruling and using internet was 1.0. But something great happened... I found Webheads in Action... my dear webheads taught me everything I know about the internet and how to use it to teach. That was in 2003, that year I had the oportunity to meet some of my best friends and brothers and sisters. Dafne as you know is from venezuela and she-s one one my fairy godmothers... I have several (Karen Garcia, Susan Nyrop, Buthaina, Teresa and of course Vance - the godfather) when I started everything they told me was like a fantasy or magical... it feels the same way now, though. Throught webhads I found you and now we are working together in this wonderful project Writingmatrix. What-s for tomorrow? I think we-ll keep on connecting people, teaching, sharing and learning. A hug!

Aside from the complex physical connections that make up its infrastructure, the Internet is facilitated by bi- or multi-lateral commercial contracts (e.g., peering agreements), and by technical specifications or protocols that describe how to exchange data over the network. Indeed, the Internet is essentially defined by its interconnections and routing policies.

As of December 30, 2007, 1.319 billion people use the Internet according to Internet World Stats. Writing in the Harvard International Review, philosopher N.J. Slabbert, a writer on policy issues for the Washington, D.C.–based Urban Land Institute, has asserted that the Internet is fast becoming a basic feature of global civilization, so that what has traditionally been called "civil society" is now becoming identical with information technology society as defined by Internet use. - web design company, web designer, web design india
