Over the past 35 years, I've experienced the workings, and the breakup, of the Bell system (C&P Telephone, AT&T) and witnessed the emergence of PC's, Local Area Networks, and the Internet. In many ways, the evolution of voice and data technologies has both shaped and mirrored my career. But I suspect I'll always be a "circuit switched guy in a packet switched world."
I believe the more you know about the history of the devices and the services you use under the "technology banner," the better equipped you'll be to apply them in your daily life. Let's start with learning what some commonly used acronyms mean, and then explore the "Why's that?" questions in order to learn about the building blocks of this new digital∗ world.
As a member of the Stone Bridge Technology Department, I'm here to help students, staff, and teachers with "all things technology." We encourage you to challenge us, and we look forward to helping you meet your goals. There is no such thing as a dumb question!
The Technology Assistant role is, in part, to serve as a liaison between users in a designated school, and the appropriate fix agents for issues that require escalation. Technology Assistants help maintain school web pages, assist staff and students with login accounts, and provide 1st level support for hardware, software, and network issues within their assigned location(s) during regular working hours. Technology Assistants are not on-call for after hours support; nor do they have access to real-time system-wide updates or change control status.
∗ The adjective "digital" is so widely mis-used, it's had to know where to begin. Want to know why I feel this way, yet continue using it out of proper context? Ask me!
