What is the Internet?
You can't escape, the communications revolution is here. The internet is a bank of screens hooked up to the worldwide network of computers linked by telephone lines. You can send messages to more than 30 million people in the world and have conferences about any subject from astrophysics to stamp collecting and tropical fishing. Your fellow explorers will be from all over the world: America, Argentina, Japan, Russia, Australia and Ghana.
This is the so-called information superhighway, a giant advance in human communications.
E-mail is the driving force of the internet. With it you can send a written message within seconds to the recipient's internet e-mail box at the other side of the world. E-mail is cheaper than the phone.
Most academic and other Institutions in the United Kingdom and other countries are connected to the internet. Just enquire from the computing manager of your organisation.
Many homes can also link into the internet via a modem.
A short note on an e-mail address. It looks daunting but it is very simple. For instance, take the address for Ghana Review:
Everything to the left of the @ symbol relates to the sender/person and you can choose how it appears. Everything to the right of the @ symbol relates the computer where the e-mail address is held. At the end of each e-mail there is a code that relates to the country of origin e.g. "uk" for United Kingdom, "au" for Australia; or type of organisation "com" for commercial organisation, "ac" or "edu" for a university, "gov" for government.
So in the above address: gr shorthand Ghana Review (gr) pbs abbreviates Portsmouth Business School (pbs) port truncates Portsmouth ac indicates an ACademic institution uk relates to the country of origin.
