July 3rd - Are Your Bits Flipped? and Digital Use in the U.S. Navy

Just as a single “flipped bit” in computer code can bring an otherwise reliable app crashing to a halt, a single misconception in your understanding of personal computing technology can cause all manner of problems—including lost data, wasted time, and frustration as you live and work in today’s increasingly digital world.  In this video presentation based on his book "Are Your Bits Flipped?", author and publisher Joe Kissell untangles common confusions surrounding the high-tech products and services we all rely on every day.  Find out why conventional wisdom is often wrong, why you might be worried about all the wrong things, and how improved knowledge of topics like privacy, web browsing, email, and encryption can make you smarter and more efficient.

A presentation by Ray Ferbrache, Retired Commander, U.S. Navy, will discuss and show the changes to technology, software and hardware in the U.S. Navy from the 1960's to the present.  It will cover the advances in ship/submarine improvements with the introduction of The Digital Environment to the Platform, Weapons, Communications and Fire Control Systems with the emphasis on how Digital Use has become more sophisticated and widespread in the Navy.
