As I read through the twitter from last night around 11PM  through until 2PM today, I am shocked and dismayed that another tool has been discovered and shared, that of WIZIQ.  Several of my twitter friends have already played around and experienced it, and yes I did say “played.”  One of my virtual friends has […]
