Source Your Visuals
Just a quick note. As I read across blogs some of you are very creatively incorporating visuals. (Interestingly, some of you are using the same visual. Be creative — look for new ones!)
I strongly suggest you link to your sources and give them attribution. In some cases, you are using copyrighted material without attribution which is not good academic practice, potentially a copyright violation and generally not very nice as a human being behavior. People like credit for their work! They appreciate being appreciated.
If you are looking for images that are free to use (like Creative Commons licensed images – and if you don’t know what Creative Commons is, follow that link!), consider tools like http://www.compfight.com which give you an option for a free to use search criteria. Below is a screen shot from the Advanced Search feature on http://www.flickr.com
And here is an example of how Alan found a great image, inserted it into this weeks task list, and referenced it.

Link to Your Resources/References
In a really great blog post today I read:
Posting images with text (much like a Meme)
I have no idea what Meme is. Add a link. Increase the value of what you put on the web! All this community/network/crowdsourcing is about ADDING VALUE to get value. So add value!
Likewise, consider links resources to learn more. (Hint, they are in your weekly syllabus pages!)
