Here we go.
I'm interested in the features of Web 2.0 -- flickr, blog, facebook, mashup, etc. I'd like to see if there is an application to help with teaching algebra and physical science. While I doubt I'll set up a personal blog to announce to the world that I'm sitting down to a dinner of meatloaf and mashed potatoes, I do want to know what blogging is and how it might be used. I do know of a family that kept their extended family up to date while their infant son underwent heart surgery at U of M Hospital. It saved them considerable energy by not having to repeat the same story over and over and over.
