Blogging, tweeting, surfing the web, updates, uploads, downloads, tagging, Facebook, Google, Flickr, Pinterest, RSS feeds, apps. Technology is everywhere and literally innervates nearly every facet of my life. Yes, I carry a cell phone, own a laptop, update my Facebook, have made a website, Prezi, screencast, and a blog. I have never particularly ridden the technology wave, more of just stood at the bottom of the tidal wave and let it wash over me as I get carried along with it.
I took an entire class dedicated to the intersection between writing and new media. Honestly, I had never really given the topic much thought before, but there is actually quite a lot to be discussed. Below you will find my own take on the interesting function of writing in a technological world as well as the blog for the class that I wrote this piece for.
