Blogging for Education

Hi, I'm Glenn and this is my first attempt at blogging.
In the first instance I am blogging as part of my Education degree, in particular for Communication Technology in Education, run by Mr David Potter of Griffith University here in Brisbane (That's in Australia, folks). The aim of the course is to enlighten us students as to what these tools can be used for as well as how they may be used in a professional sense during our working careers (personal developement and organisation).

I feel excited about writing online, I guess I have wanted to do something like this for quite some time, or maybe I'm nervous about letting it all hang out in public, I can be too candid for my own good sometimes.

I participate online and use the handle, GlennsPref, when writing to forums. These are Computer orientated places, one is an Australian Magazine called Atomicmpc (maximum power computing)http://www.atomicmpc.com.au and LinuxQuestions where I can be found among the Mandriva section http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/forumdisplay.php?f=30. I get satisfaction and a sense of achievement by discussing open source problems and contributing to the efforts of all of those code writers by helping others to setup their systems.

Some other interests I have are Audio Engineering, Music, Electronics and Martial Arts.

More to come later.
