Firebug

 

I used Firebug to create this little Craigslist posting the other day. I am still quite amazed with how it works as an art tool, and it is definitely a lot of fun to use.

My group’s presentation is going quite well, we have divvied up the workload so that now everyone is posting things on the page. It has made things a lot less stressful for me, as the web page was becoming wrought with content and I was not sure I could keep up with adding it in time.

I just thought I should share something before class today, but feel free to look at the page in its entirety here
