after an extraordinarily busy week, i finally sat down to do all my assignments as a listener. i didn't really know what to expect, as the first topic (web 2.0) seemed a bit mundane. i certainly didn't expect so much diversity and expression from this assignment. what i found, though, was really inspiring: women truly embracing this medium as a means to share and connect, to hear and be heard. i am so honored to be a part of such an amazing project. so many people shun technology as being anti-traditional, but in reality, with the right tools, technology can also be seen as a means both to uphold traditions and to make new ones. web 2.0 and media sites such as pulsewire really give us a way to learn about each other, and by extension, ourselves.
