      This topic of my CIS105 is fluid. There is always some breaking technology that is worthy of our attention, at this point in the semester.

      For the first part of the assignment, we start with Mindmeister using Windows, then switch to Ubuntu 10.04, to complete it.  This is so that you can experience the same task using 2 different operating systems.
      1. Access your portfolio and my portfolio from within Linux, using Chrome. 
      2. Click on the "Share" button; then Publish, making sure that "Publish" is "on". Click on "Embed" and copy the code. Close the window. 
      3. Edit your MindMaps page and click on "HTML". Paste the copied code and save. The mindmap should be embedded. 
      4. Complete all the legs of the Mindmap with a minimum of 2 strengths and weaknesses for each system.. Use phrases, not complete sentences.
