#7 (WEEK 3) Create a blog post about anything technology-related that interests you this week

Simply blog about anything technology related. Yes, it can be anything that relates to technology! You just need to share a few thoughts. For example:

"I like digital cameras because it's much easier to share photos with family and friends now that I have a Flickr account. Skype lets me talk with friends through computers. Technology advancements for music and medical equipment are amazing! Video Games, iTunes, iPods, iPADS, Flip Videos, Flatscreen televisions, etc. "

Discovery Exercise:

  • Add at least one comment to another participant's blog.
