Now the VOA Special English program words and their stories.

Computer technology has become a major part of people's lives. This technology has its own special words. One example is the word-mouse. A computer mouse is not a small animal that lives in buildings and open fields. It is a small device that you move around on the flat surface in front of a computer. The mouse moves the point or circle on the computer screen. Computer expert Douglas Engelbart developed the idea of the mouse in the early 1960's. The first computer mouse was a carved block of wood with metal wheels. It was called a mouse because it had a tail at one end. The tail was the wire that connected to the computer.

Using a computer takes some training. People who are experts are sometimes called hackers. A hacker is usually a person who writes software programs in the special computer language, but the word hacker is also used to describe a person who tries to steal information from computer systems.

Another well know computer word is google, spelled g-o-o-g-l-e, it is the name of a popular search engine for the internet. People use the search engine to find information about almost any subject on the internet. The people who started the company named google because in mathematics googol spelled g-o-o-g-o-l is an extremely large number, it is the number one followed by one hundred zeros. When you google a subject, you can get a large amount of information about it. Some people like to google their friends or themselves to see how many times their name appears on the internet.

If you google someone, you might find that person's name on a blog. A blog is the shorten name for a web log. A blog is a personal web page, it may contains stories, comments, pictures and links to other websites. Some people add information to their blogs everyday. People who have blogs call blogers. Blogers are not the same as spam. Spam is unwanted sales messages sent to your electronic mail box. The name is based on a funny joke many years ago on the British television show-Monty Python # . Some friends are at eating place that only serves a processed meat product from the United States called spam. Every time the friends try to speak, another group of people start singing the word spam very loudly. The interferes with friends discussion just as unwanted sales messages interfere with communication over the internet.
