3 - I learned three things I need to remember today. First, I found out that culture is created. Second, I learned that Apple using secrecy as a key to creating their culture and lastly, I learned that to keep a culture going each member of the culture must have a role. At Apple each employee has a specific role like in the army.

2 - Two things I need to do next class are find at lease five keys to Google, five keys to Zappos and find out five aspects of my culture.

1- One question I have is what are we going to do with this information?

For my finals I did many tasks. In info tech I did all 6 of them. I am on the typing game now.
2.My role in the 1st news cast for BCHS News was the reality show producer. I enjoyed this role very much because it was you, a camera and a world full of free footage that could on any day help you in your project. For the next project I want to be a lead anchor. I think this job looks... interesting. I saw what they do and all the camera effects and it looks really cool.In conclusion
6. I would have done my project differently as in a different order. I don't like how I did the order of the footage I took. I also would've added more footage so that the viewer gets better information. This wouldmean it would be more emotional. In conclusion I would like to go back and re-edit some of my project.
