If you look closely, there are surfers bobbing around out beyond the break.  They know what they are doing, they know the area and they are calm.  I took this picture standing on the wall above.  I would love to join the surfers, but I am just a body boarder, and there are rock in the shallows so it is no good for body boarding. Image 

This sort of sums up how I feel about networked practice and elearning.  I have a few low level skills and lots of enthusiasm, but I don’t feel ready to join in with the big boys and girls yet.
