I've been working hard on a big project that I really want to share with you.  It's not finished, but it's the kindof project that will always be growing and evolving so it will never be truly finished.  It's a website and community for a non profit organization. STITCH features articles, blog, social networking community, forum, video, reviews, games, and so much more. But that's the technical stuff...

Sometimes I wonder about me. Today I purchased some new items for my personal Library which consists of some of the most boring books known to man, and that includes my tech books.

 I love to use CSS and to be honest I can never find enough books on the subject. If you are like me you know that it keeps evolving and that as soon as you master one thing you are behind on the next. Too bad browsers don't evolve in the same fashion, that's kind of odd isn't it?

 Well today I ordered a new CSS pocket reference guide, as I am about 2yrs behind on that and then I ordered a few other books to make the one worth the shipping. :)

Should the idea of censorship used in the recording industry be applied to the internet?

Perhaps as a parent I have a biased opinion, but I do feel that it an incredibly important step that we as a society can take to protect children from Media Violence.  This has always been the main argument, calling for controls on media content are cast as efforts to protect the children, from to labeling it, restricting access to it, or censoring.  Children are different from adults, they are more vulnerable, impressionable, and less able to apply critical judgments on the appropriateness of media.

Since it is was my intention while in school to focus on creating educational multimedia for children, I wanted to focus my research on something that would be related and could prove useful to my chosen field. I would like to focus on 3 areas that the Internet can be or is used to improve education. Interactivity, Collaboration, and communication

Computers have transformed the educational process. They have created a new approach to the learning experience in traditional and non-traditional classroom settings. Computer-assisted instruction has been common for a long time, but the development of multimedia and the World Wide Web has presented many new opportunities for educators. What does the Internet have to offer education?
