I found “The Difference Slavery Made: A Close Analysis of Two American Communities” to be extremely interesting, especially now that I understand what XML is. I was also interested in the use of Geographic Information Systems to understand the spatial orientation of the areas in question. It was fascinating to read through the “points of analysis” section on the difference slavery made in the two counties. The way that the authors posed their arguments and then addressed them using visual aids (maps, etc) made for an easy and informative read. I had been unsure of how to pose arguments with a webpage for my final project, but the approach used in this website has given me a lot of ideas

I use google docs and google maps all the time. Before I was able to afford Microsoft Word on my new laptop, I used google docs to complete all of my papers and school work. I also appreciate the fact that I can now store all of my important documents on my google drive. I prefer google maps to any other (mapquest, yahoo, etc) direction site. I personally feel that google offers the best email (gmail) system. I can click a tap and get to my documents, calendar, etc.
