Wired – Alt Text: 100-Word User Agreements for Google, Facebook and Friends

Grading

Each member may earn up to 100 points for this Assignment 2. There must be evidence on your group blog that everyone contributed equitably; you may of course divide up the work according to each other’s strengths and interests.
