  • EFF's (Extended) Guide to the Internet - NYT Article
    we have an eight lane data superhighway rushing into every home and only a narrow footpath coming back out Instead of settling for a multimedia version of the same entertainment that is increasingly dissatisfying on today s TV we need a superhighway that encourages the production and distribution of a broader more diverse range of programming The superhighway should be required to provide so called open platform services In today s channel based cable TV system program producers must negotiate for channel space with cable companies around the country In an open platform network we would avoid that bottleneck Every person would have access to the entire superhighway so programmers could distribute information directly to consumers Consumers would become producers individuals and small organizations could create and distribute programs to anyone on the highway who wants them Open platform services will spur diversity in the electronic media just as low production and distribution costs make possible a wide variety of newspapers and magazines To prevent abuses by media giants that because of recent Federal court decisions will control the pipeline into the home and much of the content delivered over it we need new laws Like today s phone companies the companies controlling the superhighway must be required to carry other programmers content just as phone companies must provide service to anyone who is willing to pay for it We must guarantee that anyone who say wants to start an alternative news network or a forum for political discussion is given an outlet to do so Americans will come to depend on the superhighway even more than they need the telephone The guarantee of universal telephone service must be expanded to include universal access to the superhighway Although market forces will help keep the new technology affordable we need laws

    community If you stay and contribute the Net will be richer for it and so will you But it will take a sense of adventure a willingness to learn and an ability to take a deep breath every once in awhile Connecting to the Net today takes something of a sense of adventure a willingness to learn and an ability to take a deep breath every once in awhile Visiting the Net today is a lot like journeying to a foreign country There are so many things to see and do but everything at first will seem so well foreign When you first arrive you won t be able to read the street signs You ll get lost If you re unlucky you may even run into some locals who d just as soon you went back to where you came from If this weren t enough the entire country is constantly under construction every day it seems like there s something new for you to figure out Fortunately most of the locals are actually friendly In fact the Net actually has a rich tradition of helping out visitors and newcomers Until very recently there were few written guides for ordinary people and the Net grew largely through an oral tradition in which the old timers helped the newcomers Here s where you take a deep breath Fortunately most of the natives are actually friendly In fact the Net actually has a rich tradition of helping out visitors and newcomers With few written guides for ordinary people the Net has grown in large part one person at a time if somebody helps you learn your way around it s almost expected you ll repay the favor some day by helping somebody else So when you connect don t be afraid

    without software to tell it how to work Most modems today come with easy to install software Try the program out If you find it difficult to use or understand consider a trip to the local software store to find a better program You can spend several hundred dollars on a communications program but unless you have very specialized needs this will be a waste of money as there are a host of excellent programs available for around 100 or less Among the basic features you want to look for are a choice of different protocols more on them in a bit for transferring files to and from the Net and the ability to write script or command files that let you automate such steps as logging into a host system When you buy a modem and the software ask the dealer how to install and use them Try out the software if you can If the dealer can t help you find another dealer You ll not only save yourself a lot of frustration you ll also have practiced the prime Internet directive Ask People Know To fully take advantage of the Net you must spend a few minutes going over the manuals or documentation that comes with your software There are a few things you should pay special attention to uploading and downloading screen capturing sometimes called screen dumping logging how to change protocols and terminal emulation It is also essential to know how to convert a file created with your word processing program into ASCII or text format which will let you share your thoughts with others across the Net Uploading is the process of sending a file from your computer to a system on the Net Downloading is retrieving a file from somewhere on the Net to your computer In general things in cyberspace go up to the Net and come down to you Chances are your software will come with a choice of several protocols to use for these transfers These protocols are systems designed to ensure that line noise or static does not cause errors that could ruin whatever information you are trying to transfer Essentially when using a protocol you are transferring a file in a series of pieces After each piece is sent or received your computer and the Net system compare it If the two pieces don t match exactly they transfer it again until they agree that the information they both have is identical If after several tries the information just doesn t make it across you ll either get an error message or your screen will freeze In that case try it again If after five tries you are still stymied something is wrong with a the file b the telephone line c the system you re connected to or d your own computer From time to time you will likely see messages on the Net that you want to save for later viewing a recipe a particularly witty

    access to international electronic mail and conferences However recent years have seen the growth of more powerful sites that let you tap into the full power of the Net These Internet sites not only give you access to electronic mail and conferences but to such services as databases libraries and huge file and program collections around the world They are also fast as soon as you finish writing a message it gets zapped out to its destination Some sites are run by for profit companies others by non profit organizations Some of these public access or host systems are free of charge Others charge a monthly or yearly fee for unlimited access And a few charge by the hour Systems that charge for access will usually let you sign up online with a credit card Some also let you set up a billing system But cost should be only one consideration in choosing a host system especially if you live in an area with more than one provider Most systems let you look around before you sign up What is the range of each of their services How easy is each to use What kind of support or help can you get from the system administrators The last two questions are particularly important because many systems provide no user interface at all when you connect you are dumped right into the Unix operating system If you re already familiar with Unix or you want to learn how to use it these systems offer phenomenal power in addition to Net access most also let you tap into the power of Unix to do everything from compiling your own programs to playing online games But if you don t want to have to learn Unix there are other public access systems that
