In the article "Be a TED Fellow" by David Warlick, he talks about a program to find new ideas from people around the world and help them expand there ideas. They could be based on technology, art, architecture, music, film, science, literature, and many more. I think this is a great idea to possibly help our economy and maybe the world. I think that there are many great minds out there that could be opened up by this program.

In the article “The New Literacy” by Clive Thompson, he explains how technology is a new form of writing. He says “Before the internet, most Americans never wrote anything… Unless they got a job that required producing text, they’d leave school and virtually never construct a paragraph again.” Every day more people are using technology to construct paragraphs. This article relates to Dr. Wesch’s video “The Machines are using us” and Mr. Fisch’s video “Did You Know?” because of how they all talk about people and technology. Dr. Wecsh explains how technology is a very big part of society, Mr. Fisch explains how the world uses technology to communicate, and Clive Thompson explains how we us technology as a new form of writing.
Overall, Clive Thompson explains how technology is a new form of writing.
