Before Monday:
"Ubiquitous Technology"
Before Sunday at 5 p.m. please have taken 3 digital pics that illustrate your perception of what the term "ubiquitous technology" means to you. Please send them to me in jpg format at cigreig@gmail.com. Do not discuss this with your classmates, room mates, peers, etc. There are no wrong answers, only a roomful of experiences that will add to the richness of our discussion.
This activity is part of your points contributing to your grade.
