With so many youngsters online, it was foreseeable that a great share was peeking beneath the surface of the web at those huge walls of code.

Cloud-based storage services have made sharing large files easier. In the past, most people had to copy files to Zip disks or burn documents to a DVD or save them to a flash drive.
