As our Midterm exam approaches in COM 435 I get online to check my wikki and am suprised how useful it is as a study guide. Before this class I had only heard of the idea of wikkis, now I am starting to understand some of the uses. Wikkis are extremely powerful and important modern communication tools. The most powerful aspect of the wikki is being able to widely broadcast large ammounts of information, pictures, videos, and other mediums to whoever you want. Another aspect is that you do not have to store any of the information on your computer. Once you put information on the internet it is there to stay, and to be viewed, unless you or someone else deletes, corrects, or updates the post. As the semester goes on I find myself going from an internet technology skeptic to one who is using these tools to my advantage.
