Del.icio.us (http://del.icio.us/): convenient way to bookmark on one webpage, group it all by different tags/topics; you put your favorite websites in one place

  • Login, register and add a toolbar: could we use this to organize our websites for this class?

Eric’s Tutorial on GooglePages

  • New page: placemakermedia.googlepages.com
  • pages.google.com to create your own
  • very easy to edit; similar to WordPress (this blog)
  • “Add your place on the net with us”: check this out to make sure the site goes on the google site
  • Difference between Blog (WordPress) and Website (Google): WordPress adds posts one by one after each other, website allows you to make multiple pages; webpage allows you to control every aspect of the pages, WordPress has a format that needs to be there
