It just keeps track of the digits and makes the numbers easier to read. Beyond a million, the names of the numbers differ depending where you live.

Laying Out Your Online Experience What do you think most people want when they turn to these social technologies? If we throw away the terms for a moment, here’s what I think they want: A Sign We need a way for people to find us. A Friendly Place If your online presence is friendly, like a really clean and well-designed site, or if it has a place for you to relax and get acquainted, won’t that help the process of getting to know you? Networking Connections Building an online presence also gives you the chance to connect with people. Connecting is part of the whole social experience. A Storefront This is optional, but if one goal of your blog and your online presence is to sell something (even if that’s just YOU), make that clear. A People-Centric Mindset If you’re not building relationships, connecting with people, getting to know others on the web, and sharing, I’d say you’re doing it wrong, except I rarely believe that. That All Said… The tools change all the time. How do you think you stack up to the above?

Let's Make a Flexagon Let's Make a Flexagon Flexagons are flat models made from folded strips of paper that can be flexed to reveal a number of hidden faces. They are amusing toys that have also caught the interest of mathematicians and paper crafters alike. We will be making one of the simplest types, called a trihexaflexagon, which can reveal six unique patterns. Here is a video of the flexagon in action. To make your own flexagon, you will need to print the flexagon template (a pdf file) in colour on legal (8.5 x 11 in) paper. Crease along all the diagonals and along the centre. Turn the template over to the non coloured side. Fold the left side under to create a mountain fold between the blue and red triangles. Fold under again between the blue and red triangles. Now glue the two single layer flaps together to enclose all the uncoloured paper. Congratulations!
