Learn about the myriad of self-help resources out there and the many ways the Internet can enhance the quality of everyday life.

Learn about the many pros and cons of telecommuting and some of the basics you need to know in order to be successful in working from home.
Writing for the Net: Have you always dreamed of writing success? Or do you simply want to try your hand at writing in this new medium?

Learn how to master this medium and acquire the techniques needed for successful online writing and publication.
Break-Out and Workshop Sessions:
You know that the information you need is out there somewhere, but finding it online is not always easy. Finding the professional level information you need is another story altogether. This session on Deep Web Search Skills can be geared (as needed) to online newbies or to the professionals in your field. Access to a computer room is ideal, but not necessary for this session.
To make arrangements:
