First ever Blogging course approved for Con Ed in the United States!
Ann Arbor, MI was the location of a much anticipated blogging event hosted by the Ann Arbor Area Board of Realtors. They were two back to back blog courses given by noted Blogger Lola Audu. Ms. Audu taught the lively group about the development of social networking.
She dealt with the conceptual aspects as well as the nuts and bolts. She touched on where society is moving as a whole and what the Gen X & Y members would expect.
Ms. Audu suggested some of her favorite books. One is about Survival techniques-
“Mere Survival today depends on being able to do something that overseas workers can’t do cheaper, that powerful computers can’t do faster, and that satisfies one of the nonmaterial, transcendent desires of an abundant age”

Grown Up Digital by Don Tapscott How the young movers think.
