Societal Topics Weeks 7and 8 Internet Protocol (IP) addresses are numeric code used by any device that connects to the internet to identify the same source. Most IP addresses have been on a IPv4 base, but recently IPv6 addresses are becoming more used because they offer more addresses for the ever- expanding internet. IP addresses are controlled by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, then divided by region, and dictated by those regions policies regarding the internet.
IPv6 will replace the IPV4 addresses since they ran out in 2011. IPv6 will make 2128 addresses available to the internet public. This is a necessity to keeping the internet running fast, and safely. The internet society helps in the development of these new types of addresses helping with hands on learning to master this new innovation. Network neutrality is personal control of the content you experience online. All content within the law should be treated as impartial, because that is what the internet is based on. The internet society focuses on issues of liberty of expression, preventing discrimination and supporting free choice, and where these lines are drawn. Windows 8 is the next upgrade to Microsoft’s operating system. However Microsoft is already working on an even newer operating system code named “blue”. They want it to be compatible with the OS operating systems. One concern is that the Blue will make windows 8 better but a whole new program. Will consumers have to buy all over, or will Microsoft gracefully update the compatible software. Societal Topics Weeks 9 and 10
