My lifestream summary

I have chosen these web applications to demonstrate my digital activities throughout the course as part of my learning process:

My Blog

Although I have setup 6 applications but my digital activities through out the course are mainly using Facebook as shown in my lifestream feeds. There are 226 entries on Facebook compared to 3 on Flickr.
