I began my journey in this class with a small amount of knowledge with multi media. With a lot of hard work I think I have perfected it enough to use it more. And I think the biggest OH NO was when I started my website I was doing very well until I had used up my aloud five pages. Then I had to start my web site all over. All I can say is I would advise anyone taking this class to check into the web site builders before starting make sure it has a large amount of pages you can use. I think to a point I am a cloud participant. I have learned how to use many different sites, software, and ways of making things. As a learner I have found out that I am very stubborn and I don’t like to ask for help I like to do it on my own. And that I need to do things more than once to get them to sink in. My next classes I will be taking are sign language, digital photography 2 and some writing class. I think that By doing this class it will definitely help me in my career as a teacher. It will be fun building a web site with my students. I think I would like to learn more about editing photos. Taking these digital photography classes will help me and multimedia has helped me to. And I never want to see algebra again. I hate math.

As of right now I have not figured out how to remix the video but I totally will keep trying parshly because I can't stand that guy. I still feel the same when it comes to the copy right laws. I think that if it is changed dramaticly then it should be left alone. If someone was using the exact work of someone else them ok but like with the Obama photo I don't see a problem with it. It was changed so much that it really didn't look that much of the same.

I really don’t think that the internet has changed my life at all. I do feel that the internet changes all the time and the more it changes the more valuable it becomes for employment. Every time I turn around I am finding something new have it be downloadable software or sites on line. So many jobs now days use some aspect of the internet that I feel company’s may end up not having to have many human employees because computers will be able to do most of the work.

This assignment was not difficult to read but to be honest it was hard for me to understand. I read the article and watched the video. But still could not grasp how this would ever apply to me. So I went and did a search about long tail and found a site www.newfangled.com/examples_of_the_long_tail_effect which compares nexflix and blockbuster and I could understand that. But as I said at the beginning I do not see how this long tail would apply to me. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

http://www.arngren.net/ was one f the worst sights I have ever seen. It is so cluttered and full of different things that it is very easy to get lost on the main page.
http://www. lingscars.com is another cluttered website. And besides there is that big picture of the car right in the middle of the site page.
www.apple.com is a great website. Everything is neatly categorized. And it has no clutter.
www.enhancedlabs.com is another website that I think is pretty good. I know that it is kind of plain but the white lettering stands out really well on the black back ground. This site isn’t over run with graphics either which I think is great.

Week 10 Blog
Before this class I honestly had never heard of podcasting. By reading in
Wikipedia I learned that podcasting was used in audio radio, video, PDF,
or ePub files. This is very confusing for me so I am trying very hard to
understand the meaning behind podcasting. I also went to ipodder.org
which has great information on podcasting. Because of the information
that I have found it gives me a better understanding on what podcasting is.
