The beginning of my technical development...

I've learned about new websites and tools over the past week including, Google docs, blogging, and wikis. I know in the future all of them will be helpful while doing projects and keeping organized. I look forward to experimenting with these different new tools.
Prior to this class, I have used social networking tools such as Facebook and Instant Messenger. Now I am adding to my repertoire of technological tools.
