    As I read Engelbart and English’s essay I was thinking about how important of a tool the computer is to us. Not only is the computer a tool, but there are thousands of tools within the computer and internet.  All of these tools made to make some task simpler and more efficient Everywhere around us there are tools to make our lives easier, better and more productive. In our everyday tasks there are tools to help up finish faster and to do a better job. The tools and resources are there, but I feel like a lot of the time they aren’t used to their full potential. Tools can take something from basic too powerful. It can change a small advantage into a huge one. Whether it’s that because people choose not to, don’t know how to use them or simply don’t know they are there. Tools can be extremely useful, but if we aren’t educated on how to use them or what they even are, they are completely useless. We all now have brand new delicious accounts. When I searched delicious in delicious (recursion?) I came across a link that explains its tools and how to get the best use out of your account. I thought I would share with you the link so that we can all learn and be aware of these tools and thus use the site to our full advantage. I know for myself I am not entirely aware how to use the site and so I thought if it is useful to me, it might be useful to a few others as well 🙂
