Exercise 7 New techno thing I like most

I recently got a new webcam and signed up for Skype and found it to be a fun way to keep in touch with relatives from the Philippines. I'm still a little camera shy and have to remeber that they can see the facial expressions I make when they are talking. Other then that having fun being able to see and talk to people that are hundreds of miles away.

Exercise 6 Flickr Mashups

The application that I would probably use most and enjoyed looking through was the Trip Planner by Yahoo Travel. I like the feature of being able to map out all the places you've been and the ability to include pictures when doing the write up about the trip. It looks like a fun way to share those otherwise dull vacation pictures.

Exercise Two 71/2 Effective Habits

The hardest one for me would be using technology to my advantage. It sometimes feels like learning to use something new takes longer then just doing it the old way. However with a little patience I'm sure I could learn to use the many new technologies available and incorporate them into my daily life.

The easiest one would have to accepting responsibility for my own learning, I've been going to school for so long that it would almost feel weird not learning anything new or taking classes to learn something new.
