8. Dropbox is the most famous cloud storage service

 

From keeping our photos safe to switching our favorite shows on Netflix it's hard to imagine not using a cloud-based service we've gotten so used to having easy access to everything cloud technology uses servers to store your data and the hosting company owns and manages the physical environment so you don't have to basically what we're doing is buying the storage capacity from them and what better example is there than Dropbox the super popular storage service got its start after an MIT student Drew Houston kept forgetting his USB flash drive he invented something for himself and quickly realized that since the existing solutions at the time simply weren't cutting it this would be very useful for a larger audience and he was right.


9. Girls are starting to get more into code

 

Here's a pretty big gender gap in IT right now but things are looking up, in general, the industry has been known for its lack of diversity which nonprofits such as girls who code are working to solve they offer immersion programs specialized programs, and school clubs that are aimed at girls the organization also challenges the image of what a programmer should look like or be like while offering young women the opportunity to gain important coding skills award programs such as women NIT excellence awards are also stepping up to recognize women's contributions to the industry but most of all they provide a stage for constructing inspiring role models.


10. The Internet is not the same as WWW

This may be obvious for people that love computers but for the average person, it's good to note the Internet is not the same as www. The US Department for Defense is actually responsible for the internet we know and love the development supported research that eventually led to ARPANET in 1969 which was a network that connected computers at large universities in the country so it's a big network on interconnected software and hardware parts, on the other hand, the web's job is to transmit data over the internet through a URL which stands for Uniform Resource locator when you type in a URL to your browser it locates an HTML document and that is where you can find your favorite content.
