Reminder: News Report #1 due Thursday

News Report #1 is due before class on Thursday (9/4). Be prepared to discuss your news story on Thursday.

The complete assignment can be found on the right side of this page (click on "Assignment #1").

One of the topics you should be following in the news is "information technology." What is information technology?

Here's a trick. If you go to Google you can type the word "define" then a colon and the concept you wish to define, you'll retrieve definitions from websites.

So try .... define: information technology ... in Google and read those definitions.

For the purposes of this class, we're talking about "a term that encompasses all forms of technology used to create, store, exchange and use information in its various forms" (http://www.federalwc.com/glossary.html).
