Wright’s essay compares today’s social media interactions with ancient tribal customs and realizes there are many more similarities than one might realize.
Can you think of another social activity in which an enormous change in technology has occurred, but some of the original experience remains?
Compare a particular activity that people engage in with how it worked both before/after a specific tech change and come to a conclusion about the results. For instance, travel directions before/after GPS, shopping before/after internet, communication before/after the mobile phone, etc.
Note: To succeed at this specific assignment, choose a specific tech development and compare before/after it. Don’t write a history of tech advancement, for instance how gaming has advanced from the Nintendo 64 to today’s smart phone!
