New Interest Group - replacing the Technical Interest Group

TV, radio, movies, home movies, recorded music, photos and books - in the 21st century the computer revolution means that we are increasingly consuming them as “media”.

The days of broadcast television, paperback books, newspapers, photo albums, CDs and DVDs are dwindling, and soon everyone will obtain them by streaming through the internet.

It’s scary, but fear not, SeniorNet has launched the Media Group, an Interest Group that helps members understand smart TVs, TV on demand, streaming radio, streaming recorded music, digital books and newspapers, and photo sharing.

Roger Pittman and Eric Scowcroft will, each month, explain the topics, demonstrate the technology and discuss your questions.

Coming up:

Information for your interest from the previous group, known as the Technical Interest Group

Here are some links to the workshop material:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_area_network for networking development from the beginning.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_protocol_suite for Internet Protocol development.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireshark is software that enables you to capture network traffic as it flashes past so you can examine it at your leisure.  Mostly we don't need to do that.  
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAN_Manager. For Windows 8 users, you can see that the system goes back to OS2 days which is almost the beginning of Windows 25 years ago.  Still in use.  Looks a bit different.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_6_cable all about the cables.

Technical Interest Group Members are encouraged to lead discussion on any problem they have encountered so that jointly we can find a solution.
