7 indications you might not be an internet noob anymore:

October 6th, 2008

…gleaned from my experiences working in an internet-inexperienced newsroom…

  1. You’re not afraid to type a URL in the address bar of a web browser.
  2. You know what “URL,” “address bar,” and “web browser,” mean.
  3. You’ve used a browser that doesn’t have “Explorer,” “MSN,” or “AOL” in its name.
  4. You know how to copy and paste a URL (From the page you’re on or from a link on a page) into an email.
  5. You know that “http://” goes at the start of every URL.
  6. You know how to clear your browser cache without looking up instructions on the internet, and you understand which situations a clear-the-cache can fix.
  7. You know how to (and you do) add commonly-used links to your browser link bar (you get half points if you use your browser’s “favorites” in horizontal sidebar).
