The Quote of the Week
“Advances in computer technology and the Internet have changed the way America works, learns, and communicates. The Internet has become an integral part of America's economic, political, and social life.” - Bill Clinton
This week’s quote comes from Mr. Bill Clinton and it sums up how technology, specifically, the Internet is shaped up today. I chose this quote for the week because we all should think about how we use the Internet and other technology in our daily lives in every aspect. It is true, too. You know some people leave the house without their phone and they will say that they feel naked without because they are always talking on the phone or texting. Most people do not know the first thing about computers everything else that is becoming popular among teenagers and young people. I read another quote that stated that the Internet is used to send out mass information and news to people since most people spend most of the day online playing games, looking at their stocks, reading blogs about the next presidential election, or just having fun the different social networks and websites that are out there. We can jump online to buy the latest Apple products, ladies can buy a new outfit and shoes, iTunes is the destination to have the ability to buy one song off an artist’s album without buying the CD for that particular song. I’m thankful for that LOL.
Some college applications and other paper items are going digital. Instead of printing and wasting paper, they want you to learn how to read online….although spending too much time the computer will mess your eyes up. The point of this quote is to think about the technology and how the internet plays a role in your daily routine. Think on how things would be like without the computer and Internet. I know I would go crazy! Communication goes beyond just talking on the phone. We can input a little about of information and let the computer and other machines and spits out everything that we need.
As you go on with your week think about the role of computers, cell phone, Internet, and any other technology, and how you use it in your daily routine including getting the latest news, socializing with family and friends to shopping online.
