Reactions and comments from my fourth hour Honors American Literature class.


My favorite place in the world to be is underwater. My second favorite place is the front of a classroom.

Convenience, Meaning, Technology

Mr. Fisch posted the following link on our technology team's blog, and I immediately wanted to spread it to everyone I know. If you have 8 minutes, watch this short film and post your reactions. http://www.robinsloan.com/epic/

That touched on some interesting topics, the idea that our greatest desire is to run our lives from our computer, basically doing away with all human contact. The idea that all information online will be a compilation of big businesses brings up the idea of propaganda, if we only rely upon the internet, or one source we can easily succomb to other's ideas and in this case, plans for domination of everything! My favorite part was the idea of the New York Times only appealing to the "elite and elderly". Isn't it terrible how we exclude older people from our web of technology? Is that because we want to have a club and not invite those born before the era of computers?or do we just not realize what we have done?
