This essay was prepared as a group project for OMDE
605, New Media, by Ellen Blackmun, Donald Bunis, Annmarie Clattenburg,
Josephine Deguara, and Sheryl DiStefano. It is this author's best
experience in a collaborative project in the MDE program. The reasons
for this are that everyone on the team contributed to the outcome,
there was a high level of cooperation among group members, and the
result was better than the sum of its parts.
