So long, Farewell

I’ve never been good at goodbyes and frankly I’ve rarely say goodbye to a course or class or professor its usually more aligned with “see you never”. But this class was different. It was a created community, but in the classroom and outside as we were constantly connected and communicating through this blog and over twitter. This […]

Digital Gift Giving

My sister’s birthday is coming up and I’m wondering what to get her. I went online to a number of her favorite stores and saw many had options to virtually send gifts. This idea has been around for a while as I remember years ago my aunt sent me a $5 gift card to Starbucks […]
