Everytime I think I am getting a leg up on technology it knocks me down a few pegs. I'm so proud of the fact that I can blog. I found the web chats to be easy. I finally figured out the Google groups. With a lot of assistance I got my wiki page linked to blackboard. In other words, I was feeling pretty good about myself. I just read your blog and have never heard of most of the top ten trends. Technolgoy triumphs again. I suppose that's what keeps me motivated.

Technology is such a large word as it can mean any thing from the new high tech pencil to the plow that the farmer uses. I realy don't think that any one can know all the new tools that are avalible in the world for all ocupations.
