Final Thoughts on a Thought Provoking Class

When I first signed up for this course and realized that it would entail blogging/tweeting publicly throughout the semester, I was a bit pessimistic if 1) I’d be comfortable sharing my thoughts with the “entire world” 2) if I’d be able to come up with enough ideas to share for 14 weeks.   I didn’t realize […]
