Koan 6: Nothing Goes Away

1. Yes, Koan 6 speaks the truth and nothing but the truth. Data is stored for everything these days as the document said. This stored data needs a physical space to be stored in though and sooner or later we will end up running out of space. If they have stored over 2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 bits (250,000 Petabytes) in one year, we will be running out of this space soon unless we start deleting some of the stored data for security sake and for economical sake.
2. Data at our school is stored of every kid's grades, family information, personal information, etc to keep track of everyone. As well as in track and XC my times are stored on different websites so people can view them as they please.

Marconi Station Review

I thought the field trip was very good. The Enigma decoder was my favorite part. I liked how you could simulate the use of it when you interacted with the morse code sounder. The drone simulation was very good but it would have been better if it was an actual drone (even though that most likely violates insurance). I wish during the field trip we had more time to ourselves to look around and explore instead of a guided tour. Other than that the it was very good, they did a good job.

Breakthrough Technologies

I have known about the majority of these breakthrough technologies for a good amount of time because most of them are kind of old. The breakthrough that I like the most is quantum computing because I love computer hardware. Quantum computing will allow computer processors to reach unspeakable computing power in the next decade. These powerful computers will open up many possibilities in the future for vehicles, the internet, gaming, space travel, etc. I love computers very much, I have built two and taken apart over twenty, I would love to get my hands on a quantum computer because of my urge to handle these parts.

Fahrenheit Program

The purpose of the assessment was to solve the problem of converting Fahrenheit to Celcius using a CS50 ide C program. At first, I couldn't figure out how to print the converted temperature onto the screen but after a lot of trial and error I finally figured it out. A tip I would give myself is to look back at other projects because some of them using the same code just a tad different.

I think the purpose of the lesson was to get us started and adapted to C language and CS50. I didn't learn much because I already know a bit of C. But with that said, I didn't know CS50 IDE existed so I did learn about that. The only issue I encountered is that the program wouldn't work until today because I made a stupid mistake and forgot the put the hello program in the hello folder. To solve this, I simply just put the program in the hello folder.

Computer Innovation That Has Had The Most Impact On My Life

The computer innovation that has had the most impact on my life is access to the internet in general. This is because all throughout my childhood I never had access to the internet of any electronic devices. When I obtained my first electronic device, it had internet access on it. Ever since then I have been using the internet as a resource for school work, as a way to figure out certain bits of information, history, or even just as a way to entertain myself through games or Netflix. They also give me the ability to continue my passion for data analytics and create things like the Amazon Alexa on a Raspberry Pi I made last year.
