What is Netiquette? It is a proper and civil way to communicate and interact with each other over the Internet through E-mail. These rules are recommended by communication and business experts to help encourage better communication. It is a way to establish rapport through the virtual high tech world of communication. E-mail can be used at any time and it is quick and efficient. Clarity and conciseness is imperative for good communication. The disadvantage is that it is not private and there is no personal interaction.

I would like to recommend to you a book. It is called “Life’s That Way,” written by Hollywood actor Jim Beaver. The book is a collection of e-mails written by Beaver to family and friends on the heels of his wifes, Cecily Adams’, lung cancer diagnosis in 2003. Most of his e-mails were written late at night before Jim went to bed. The messages were written after the dust settled from the day’s activities, and he was able to write without being disturbed.

I read his e-mails. They tell of hardship, exhaustion, apprehension, and a steadfast resolve to carry on the mission. As I read, I hold my breath?and somehow think this will take away the news I fear most. But I've learned long ago that possibility doesn't dissipate because one wishes it so. And, as I read, Captain Crocker tells: "We lost a Marine today; he was killed while checking on one of his wounded men." My very soul is torn, for when you've been in the brink, each man who falls is one of yours.

Rather than replace an outdated and overworked server that threatens to bring e-mails at City Hall to a sudden halt, La Cañada Flintridge officials are looking to a very 21st-century solution: cloud computing. The cloud-computing strategy will replace the city's need for an on-site server by using massive remote servers to process and store information in real time through a high-speed Internet connection. Council members on Monday approved plans to switch from a city-owned server to the Google Apps e-mail and calendar system, the first step in a long-view vision to eventually also employ Google Apps software over Microsoft Office programs for word processing, spreadsheets and even presentations.

Tips for confidence in using the Internet and e-mails: Spell Check: Use this aspect for spelling and correct grammar. Confidential Information: Avoid confidential and sensitive subjects. The Internet is not private. Do not, under any circumstances, put your credit card on the Internet unless it is a secure site. Some companies monitor e-mails to make sure that employees are not writing personal information on business time. Avoid sending anything by e-mail that you would not want to have for public consumption.
