My experience so far on the project has been very interesting. I had a lot of fun making my audio introduction. I haven't found all of my partners on the Wiki yet, but I'm sure that will change. Our Wiki has many strenghts, more then weaknesses. It is very informative and intersting. To move on with the project I need to figure out my addition to the Wiki, and to do that I have to understand it better. I understand most of our Wiki, but some of it I'm still a little fuzzy on. I'm sure that will… Continue

Globalization has not only affetced China but many other Asian coiuntries like India, Bangladesh. As I am from India I have noticed a huge change in India's economy and production in these last few years.

Living in Shanghai, China, a lot of what I take part in and what I see every day is a result of outsourcing. Shanghai, a city in which new projects and new buildings seem to spring up every week, is constantly being made bigger, taller, and more advanced because of globalization. Where I live, and especially downtown, you can’t go seven kilometers without hitting another Starbucks or Pizza Hut. Really becoming internationalized, Shanghai is becoming a focal financial and business hub. Even the… Continue

palm. The kids will go to get information.
Part three will be showing a kid who has recieved all the information remixing it on… Continue

For a teacher: ning.com, used as a learning tool for the students.
For a student: twitter.com, used as a microblog site.
For someone interested in sports:… Continue

For our Design & Innovation Video, the plan is to have Weblings narrate various screenshots and pictures of Virtual Communication websites and programs. We will discuss Skype, AIM (instant messaging), and Soulseek.
What we need from you guys is a clip describing and/or following how you use a social networking site; how you set up a profile, how it looks, what matters to you in terms of function and design.
