In the article "The New Literacy" by Clive Thompson what matters is that technology is actually helping with our writing abilities. Because writing is part of our everyday lives people are writing now more than ever. It's not a structured essay form of writing but more of a free form that includes texting, twittering, blogging etc.
In the video "Did You Know" by Karl Fisch he helps us realize that technology makes anything that it is involved in better. This can be anything from brushing our teeth to sending people into space. Fisch agrees with Thompson that technology is making our lives exceptional in many ways.
In the Youtube video, "The Machines Are Using Us" by Dr. Wesch we see that writing is much easier than it used to be. Wesch is also in agreement with Thompson about how technology is our new writing utensil.
All three of these examples are dealing with technology and how it is changing our daily routines. They all cover different areas but have the same message.
