Protocols in Real-Life

Today we came across an interesting topic in ‘Information Technology in Global Society’ class.  Mr. Watt challenged us to use protocols to transfer a text by only using binary numbers, zeros and ones! In example the letter “a” could be written as “0110 0001”. Then we would receive a sentence or a paragraph from him and pairs would have to come up with any protocol involved method to first write it as binary and then decoded back to text.  We decided to make a function using Google Spreadsheet.  We used VLookup function.

Here is our sample:
