History of the Internet:1969-2012 [infographic]

This week’s infographic comes from one of our partner websites, AVG.com. The infographic focuses on major viruses and major steps the Internet has taken to arrive where it is today. The Internet is something us kids these days take for granted. Take a look at this and become enlightened on the major strides people and companies took to provide everyone with an abundance of information!

My mother, being the expert on this issue, informed me that the network created by the U.S. Science Foundation in which it was possible to “link existing university supercomputer networks” was a big deal. This new form of communication between universities allowed for information and research to be shared. Yay learning! She also let me know how groundbreaking the publication of information for anonymous use (HTML) was, which Tim Berners-Lee created.

When I was busy chattin’ it up on AIM in my middle school years, I never contemplated how talking to one instantly over the Internet was possible. This infographic brings us to a new level of awareness as it addresses the progression of the Internet. It is important that we do not treat it as an assumed luxury; however, it is incredibly difficult not to. Let us have a great Sunday and be thankful for what we have! [AVG.com]

Online Tracking 101: Who’s Watching You? [infographic]

Big Brother is at it again you guys, and in 2013 it is worse than ever. New technology means tracking user habits and preferences has become even easier. Of course we all know Facebook will sell our soul to Russia and we seem okay with it, but your privacy is invaded way more than you think.

Travel sites and online shops will raise the price on items if you visit the site, or search for the item often. It is always better to delete your cookies or use an ‘incognito mode’ when shopping online to guarantee the lowest price.

Google, the company we all know and love knows more about you than your mom. Medical problems, credit scores, religious, political and sexual beliefs are just a few things Google knows about you. Online privacy is a hot-button issue, but like many issues facing the younger generation the current political elite tend to ignore. My state representative and head of The House Science, Space and Technology Committee, Lamar Smith, has a lot of decision making power over the internet and has proposed the privacy killing bill SOPA along with a staunch anti-web voting record.

The older generation needs to realize that the internet isn’t going anywhere, and protecting its natural state is incredibly important. [Via]

2013: Keeping your New Years Resolution [infographic]

The most common day to give your New Years resolution up has already passed, January 10th. Have you made it thus far? If so good job! But remember, 22% of people drop their resolution by the end of January, will you be part of that statistic?

New Years resolutions are a great thing, but keeping up with them can be difficult because breaking old habits and creating new ones can be a hassle. I was told in grade school it would take 40 days in a row to create a new habit. I still believe this is pretty true. If only breaking habits were as easy…

Going to the gym is one of the most popular resolutions in America and one of the hardest to keep at. It is costly, time consumer, tiring and seeing all those really fit people can be disheartening. Imagine if you did go to the gym everyday for a year though, you will be one of those healthy energetic fitness geeks that the newbies look up to. You’ll have expertise that will help you live a healthy lifestyle for the rest of your days.

Stick to your resolutions this year, I know I am already struggling with mine, but I will keep trying my best. [Intel Ultrabook]
