About Someone Else's Term Project

I totally can compare myself to the presentation about the negative effects of New Media and Social networking sites. I do feel like Facebook has been eating me up with its applications. In the past, I have never touch blogging like Xanga and MySpace like all my other friends did when I was in middle school. Once high school started, Facebook just hit me like a wave. It turn worst for me when gaming applications started coming out. I would say that I am part of the mass that cannot stay off the internet for a day.

When I recall the statistics of cyber-bullying and predators, I can't really see that happening to me as the predator or prey, although I do see it on the news a lot. I just have to say that the preys are weak minded, even though that's a harsh thing to say. The only trap that I might get trapped by is the useless spam that randomly pop-ups time to time.

About My Term Project

That was one of the hardest things that I had to do for classes. I'm pretty knowledgeable in my own experience but finding material was hard. Figuring out a design for a topic like this totally racked my brains so I just went minimalistic as possible. I did have trouble trying to find the right words to say but it really helped me to talk about a topic I have interest in. Seeing that many people in the class didn't know most of the advance tech that I know about, it was pretty hard to find the right words to convey my meaning. The only thing that I felt safe explaining about was pretty much what MMORPG means since I had to describe this term to many others. I hope I did well for this presentation for my topic. That was a killer 10 - 15 minutes standing up there.
