Put forth our best writing selves

In the article "Put forth our best writhing selves" by Douglas Hesse is about ways that technology has destroyed writing. Douglas tells how technology is so much more advanced from twenty years ago. He says things such as sending pictures to a relative in Afghanistan is no problem and you can make a thirty minute slide show very quickly. This relates to Clive Thompson's article "The New Literacy" and Karl Fisch's video "Did You Know?" because they both explain ways that technology is taking over society and how people write. I believe that technology that allows you to chat should have a program similar to word to force people to write better.

  1. I agree. If there was an automatic spell and grammar check on the computer for everything that was typed, it could help improve the writing. But as much as I think technology is very beneficial to society, I think that it does affect our writing skills. Many people could just ignore spell check or simply turn it off.
