As I began reading Critical Literacy in a Digital Era, I was concerned after reading about Moore's Law. Barbara Warnick wrote, "If Moore's Law continues to hold true and our technological capacity does indeed accelerate exponentially over time, then the creation of virtual environments, diminution of human-to-human contact, and relegation of work and labor entirely to computing devices appear to be logical outcomes" (Warnick 4). After reading this and giving some thought to it, I was most concerned about the prediction of taking away human-to-human contact.
Looking at my mapping project for class, I saw how often I communicate through technology (whether it be on my cell phone, texting and calling, or a laptop for emailing). I am a really big "people person"; I would much rather talk to people face-to-face, than on my cell phone. I see how technology has already reduced human-to-human contact; but, if Moore's Law is correct and diminishes human-to-human contact even more, I think people won't know how to properly communicate and interact with others face-to-face, especially the younger generation.
