Cloud computing refers to the internet as the “sky” and “clouds”. Which are connections between different
computers. The large computers or servers does all the “hard work” instead of the local computers running
programs, processing and storing data. The benefits to this setup is that the workload of the local computer is
greatly reduced, and there are office programs like Google Docs and Office Web Apps. This lets you create, store
and share documents online that you can access from anywhere. The drawbacks of it is, if the cloud computing
servers go offline you go offline. It is the same as internet computing which means that you should not use data
that you are not comfortable having online. Also, depending on the device that you are using, the “cloud” may
have some restrictions on what programs or apps you can or cannot use.
Banned Books Week!!! September 30 - October 6, 2012
Banned Books Week is an event celebrating freedom
to read and the importance of the First Amendment.
It highlights the benefits of free and open access to
information while drawing attention to the harms of
censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted banning of books
across the US.
During Banned Books Week, there will be displays and challenges to
engage you the readers on the best allies in fighting censorship.
