February 27, 2017 Bobcats, Practice Touch Typing for 10 minutes. Log in your practices on your typing journal page in Dreamweaver. Then Word, a very popular word processing application.

This week we explore how to use text in the computer environment.

A word processor was one of the three Killer Applications that made a computer a must have appliance, first in the business then in education, now everywhere.

Writing is an amazing way to share knowledge, ideas, fantasies and joy. How do computers deal with text?

How did information become text?

Asian Block Prints (868)

Printing Press (1450)

typewriter (1860s)

Morse code (1836)

Electrical Telegraph (1836)

Morse telegraph (1838)

 

 

Pony Express (~1860-1861)

Teletype (1908)

American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ascii) (1963)

Internet (1969)

Bobcats, Word processors, the first killer app. The coding of our thoughts, plans, ideas, play and work into an alphabet which is then coded into another computer code known as ASCII (American Standard Code for Information and Interchange) is how human writing is being done today. The writer still must go through rewrite after rewrite to get to the final document but with a word processor much time is saved for production of the document which means more time is available for creativity.

Vocabulary for word processing - These terms have spread from the word processor program to many other computer programs.
