If you have some less tech-savvy friends that are a bit confused about cloud computing, HTML5, DNS or the other ins and outs of the internet, a new web site created by the Google Chrome team explains it clearly for non-techies.
20 Things I learned is a short online book—not an eBook, but a book-like HTML5 creation—designed to explain some of the finer points of the internet to those that don’t understand. It’s got quite a few long-standing basics, like DNS, IP addresses, and cookies, while also explaining some of the more recent trends, like webapps, HTML5, cloud computing, and more. You can flip through pages cover-to-cover, or jump to specific sections from any point in the book. It’s a good resource when something like Wikipedia might get too technical, so it’s a nice companion to Google’s latest video how-tos for parents initiative. Hit the link to check it out.
