Part 1: Getting Started > What Is the Internet and What Can You Do There?

Hour 1. What Is the Internet and What Can You Do There?

You probably think you already know what the Internet is. And you're probably 90% right, for all practical purposes. But by developing just a little better understanding of what the Net's all about, you'll find learning to use it much easier.

Don't get me wrong: This hour is not about the tiny, techie details of how the Net works. You don't need to know exactly how the Net works to use it, any more than you need to know the mechanics of an engine to drive. Rather, this hour is designed to give you some helpful background—and perhaps dispel a few myths and misconceptions—so you can jump confidently into the stuff coming up in later hours.
