I love my virtual life!

I love my virtual life...

I like that fact that I can combine my personal webpage, blog, flickr etc to create a rounded account of who I am. And that I can determine my authentic voice on the internet. I like that fact that I can communicate in the virtual world and that I have webs of friends, that I may never meet :-) (yes, that means you, if you're reading this!)

I like that fact that I have enough html knowledge to maintain my personal webpage. I am excited about how I can use virtual methods and with social theories of learning at work. I love the fact that I learn so much via podcasts.

Yes, I am a geek and gadget girl, but I am out and I am proud :-)
Long Live Technology and the Internet!
