Search Exercise + Video Observations

Search Engine Exercise: #11-
As always I started my search using Google. I searched the words "hiking 60 miles around Austin." With about 453,000 results coming up, the link I clicked on (60 Hikes within 60 Miles: San Antonio & Austin Guide Book
) turned out to be just what I needed. Three of the top five trails are located right here in Austin! They are Sculpture Falls at Barton Creek, Bull Creek Trail and the Lower Barton Greenbelt.

It's interesting to see how far technology as a whole has come along. Back in the late 60s, the idea of linking multiple computers to one network was unimaginable. To think that decades ago people were using Morse code and room-sized computers is mind absolutely mind boggling. Today, the world would not be able to survive without it. From the Blackberry to the iPhone, we walk around knowing that we have the world at our fingertips. It's a beautiful thing.
