A Bit of Everything

Quite often, while reading or searching the web I come across great material I think could come in handy for different courses or projects.

Many times I´ve saved articles, webpages, etc to different apps and tools; the truth is it ended up lost or totally forgotten.

This time I´m using Prezi, so far I find it really useful. I can link topics as I like or need and have it close at hand ever time I open my account.
