In David Warlick’s Conferences and Krispy Kream what matters is enjoyment. David and is finally home for a week and it is very enjoyable. But soon he has to attend a number of conferences around the U.S. before he leaves he take his mother-in-law and her groom, Alvin to Krispy Kream. They watch the employee pick a dozen freshly made doughnuts into a box. And they enjoy they great tasty treats. This matters to the world because, we all need to sit back and relax once in a while. Everyone needs to sit down enjoy a doughnut and a coffee, and think of all the good things that life has to offer. Enjoy the good things that you have accomplished, forget the stresses of work, family, and money. This matters to me because whenever anything goes wrong I always forget the good and all I think about is the bad. I need to learn to love and remember the good things. What I think that David wants us to take out of this is to take pleasure in your achievements and you don’t have to stress over anything.

In David Warlick’s Suggest this One to your Students — Space Diving what matters to him is fun and amazement. In 2018 it will be possible for common people to skydive in space. They are researching the technology now and that is when they are expecting the completion. It would be amazing to be able to jump out of a spacecraft and just float down to earth. They are designing a suit that would slowly draw you back to earth and land you safely somewhere. This matters to the world because when we are able to fly from space safely home. Then I couldn’t imagine the possibilities, we would play sports, and take vacations in outer space. This matters to me because I know that I will for sure want to go skydiving in space. David says so much about the advancement of the human race; our generation will create great and amazing things that people twenty years ago couldn’t dream of creating.

In David Warlick’s Big Ideas — Bring Education Back into Focus what matters to him is educational reform. He supports the idea of learning with technology. There is a new system called the Big Ideas 4 Education in which is an idea of a whole different kind of education. There is only for easy steps to help reform the educational system in America. He showed his support by adding an html code at the bottom of the post; this is for other bloggers to post on their blog to show their support as well. David believes that when the educational system is changed students will learn better. This will matter to the world because when you learn more, schools produce smarter people, which intern make the smarter people think of smart ideas, and then eventually we will have a much more productive world. If I learn more I think that I can be a much bigger contribution to the world, than if I hadn’t learned as much. David proves a vital point when he shows his support for the Big Ideas 4 Education that defiantly needs to be proven.

In Will Richardson It’s the Parents’ Fault. Not., what matters is realization. In this entry Will is interviewing a principle of a school about his students MySpace pages. The principle thinks that it is the parent’s fault that the children don’t know how to use these sights properly. Will on the other hand thinks that it is the principles fault; he thinks that if they would teach the children at an early age why those things are wrong, then they will know in the future not to do it. I think that it matters to me because, I think my parents have taught me well enough to know what to do and what not to do with my page. But the world on the other hand, doesn’t quite grasp the concept of reality. In the real world, when you want to get hired, they owner will now look at your MySpace/Facebook page. If you have anything inappropriate or unnecessary on your page you will not be hire. As soon as the world realizes that they are being watch with everything they do, then they will stop doing the wrong thing. I don’t think that it is the parents or the principle fault. I think that the kids (the ones that are going to end up doing those bad things) are going to do whatever they want no matter what their respective elders tell them. I think that those kids have to learn from experience. Once they continuously are being rejected for jobs. They eventually will learn why and they will have no choice but to change.
In It’s a New Day by Will Richardson what matters is pride. The day that President Obama was elected, was a great day for America. Not only for the African-American population but for the entire country, David says “we elected a man, who, when and where I grew up, would not have been allowed to drink from the same water fountain as I”. That is a huge step for America, because when we have finally realized that there is no difference between races, religions, or looks. We listen to the person and hear what they have to say. No matter how different they are. It matters to me because I love change and I think that Obama is biringing great divercity to the country.David show how proud he is and that is how proud I am

In David Warlick's Levelhead what matters to him is gaming and having fun. The Levelhead is a game witch you have to push a 3-D man through a series of 3-D rooms. You have push the man through the door in the room. Only one of the doors leads him to the next room, all the others make you start over. This matters to the world because we have come so far with technology, form Tetris to Halo, form pong to virtual reality Wii, and form Nintendo Revolution to Xbox 360. We have become so much more creative and advanced with our ideas. It matters to me because it is just another game to have fun wasting my time with on the weekends. This game will help kids find something constructive to do on their free time. They will now be using their brain, to find solutions to problems without even knowing it. With the Levelhead you will no longer poison your mind with war games you will now constructively build your mind. I can tell David loves having fun with any time that he can get his hands on, that is why he wrote this article about the newest game.

In David Warlick’s, Graphic Display of Web Lists… what matters to him is ease. Sense the invention of the internet, access to almost anything is extremely easy. You can find almost anything at any time. David shares the advice of using a new search engine called SearchMe. It works like Google but displays images of the web pages in a Mac file style, which is helpful when you are looking for based on what it looks like. When the world can see what someone else is doing across the world, it was unthinkable forty years ago. Now I can talk to my friend Will (who lives in California) like he was two miles away by the click of a button; by using the internet or cell phones. I love the accessibility of contacting my friends from so far away. David show us the vital importance of conversation with old friends, colleges, and distant family.

In David Warlick’s RDU New, what matters to him is being aware of the changing society. When he was at the RDU airport he noticed that the terminal seats were equipped with outlet plugs, USB inputs, and WiFi. David remembered that things are changing at an alarming pace. Soon things will be completely different then they were twenty years ago. From gas to gas free, from stores to the internet and from war to peace. Everything will progress. But sometimes change can be bad, when machine guns were invented, millions more people died. When the world realizes change it always seems to be a little frightened. This year we could have our first African American president, and most Americans are scared (for different reasons). I have always embraced change; it has enhanced my intelligence, improved my talents, and developed my social skills. Even though there can be disadvantages to change most of it will result it improvement in society, that is what David wants us to understand, be aware of change and try to comprehend the improvements it might make.
