Wow - I've reached the end!

This has all been very interesting - it's good to know what's out there and I'm pleased that I'll be able to respond intelligently if someone talks to me about wikis, Bebo or Flickr. However I don't think this programme has assisted or affected any of my lifelong learning goals.

My favourites?
Colours and images and playing around with them in online image generators. I may use some of these in the creative side of my job.
Also RSS feeds are pretty amazing, for local newspaper updates and podcasts from favourite programmes particularly, but I probably won't use them as I only want these things on an occasional basis.
I'd used YouTube before and am sure I'll do so again, but again only occasionally when I have something specific to look for.
Call me old-fashioned but really I'd rather stick my nose in a book for hours on end, rather than glue myself to a computer screen (or a TV screen for that matter).

It's obvious that all these online things have to be simple to sign up to and simple to use, but I have been surprised at just how straightforward it all is - the hardest bit has been finding the time to do the exercises!
