Broadcasting from the United States in a digital video lounge. Nancy Netiquette breaks down the netiquette definition. A full explanation. Plus, three definitions.
In any event, a decision by me, David Chiles, was made to create the word netiquette. At the time, 2006, a person canceled a speech for a meeting later that day. As a result, a woman asked me to step in.
Also, my hours were from 5:00 AM to 3:00 PM. So, had three hours to prepare. Skipped the gym to practice. Social media was just MySpace back then. Email was important to us in the group.
Thus, a speech was written. During writing came across the word somewhere. Couldn’t find a definition. After, used adwords to learn more. Very few searches. Hence, took it upon myself to define it. Then, keep it as a theme for speeches.
First, a portmanteau. So, network and etiquette were put together to form a new word. As a result, new word means what others meant put together.
A network is a computer that can share signals with other electronic devices. Thus, a connection is required. So, it’s digital.
Etiquette is a code of current standards. Customs between friends. Also, necessary for a smooth transaction in business. Therefore, it is social.
Last, netiquette is the social code of the internet because it is the biggest network.
