Another time to reflect on what everyone else has done, catching up from last week!
Stefan talks about the integration between technology and culture through technological determinism.
Kiralee talks about the idea that authors loose control over their work when they move it to an electronic platform in terms of story order.
Carli talks about how vulnerable are large infrastructure networks like the power grid of the internet to random failures or deliberate attacks and gives an article about ‘Four Ways The Internet Could Go Down’.
Rachel goes on to discuss whether or not we are becoming mindless users of technology, with multiple examples, one being The Candy Crush Saga.
And last but not least, Jamie talks about the Week 8 Reading by saying we have become accustomed to a certain level of comfort, and noticing that we are talking about electricity and the author’s last name is Watts.
