  1. You are always asking me how I find all of the things that I do on the web. Well, with so few of us in class today, I have decided to show you how.
    • I have become an aggregator, a great collector of information. I store it up in my cheeks like a squirrel. Del.icio.us is my main resource, and we really haven’t tapped fully into it. I would like to show you just how cool finding things can be.
