During a recent session in Gold class, Mr Mearns has been telling us about what the Internet is and how it works. The internet was created by a man called Sir Tim Berners-Lee in 1989. He worked at the Cern Large Hadron Collider. The Internet is the inter connected network of computers. This network of computers allows the World Wide Web (WWW) to work. To understand this we have worked as mini networks. One person was the switch and other were computers in that network. We then learnt how computers passed messages to one another. We also sent some messages in a 7 bit binary code called ASCII ( American Standard Code for Information Interchange). This code was first invented in the early 1060's and has been the basis for all computer data transfer since. In this code letters and other computer symbols and digits have a code based around 7 digits. The digits can only be 1 or 0. This represents the state of a single pole switch either being on or off. 1 for on and 0 for off. For example 100 0001 is the letter A, 100 0010 is the letter B.
