I have been a citizen in this Web2.0 for almost a year now. Prior to, embarrassingly, the extent to which I utilized the web was:
* yahoo.com for email
* amazon.com for online shopping
* travelocity.com driving directions and plane tickets
* google.com for basic random and lucky research for academic papers and lesson planning.
Last April I randomly fell into this hidden underworld and it has completely changed my life: socially, intellectually, professionally, financially, productively, and even my marriage. In every area, my life has dramatically improved. It has become my mission to share this new technology primarily in the field of education to the average to below average computer user.
