PLN 10

In the article “Is Starbucks Killing Community?” by David Warlick, explains about the usage of Starbucks to the community. The once most socialized coffee shop has been corrupted by technology. Most people only come to Starbucks for a treat and WiFi. In my opinion, this is a very true statement because in all the years that I have gone to a local Starbucks, the environment has been peaceful and filled with laptops. This article can relate to Mr. Fisch's video called “Did You Know”. This article talks about the use of technology for things such as communication and how technology is slowly beginning to take over the world. Overall, this article explains the usage of technology in Starbucks and how it destroys communities.

  1. Hi, I'm one of your mentors, Danielle. That's almost a scary thought. We're creating technology so advances for our way of life, that it's possible that we will make things more intelligent that humans. How long will it be before we lose control of our own creations?
