I really enjoyed working on this project. I feel that it allowed me a chance to do something that can be seen by many people to come.<br />Thought this project was an opportunity for us to become more familiar with web-based resources and more importantly contribute to them.<br />I really enjoyed the process and think it's very neat, that my classmates and I have something useful and public.<br />I felt it was a great experience for learning how to contribute to our profession in a very accessible way.<br />
