After reading the article, I agree that due to the internet and technology I have been inclined to write a great amount more than those did before me. ¬†Until this article, I had never really thought about how much I actually am forced to write due to the constant use of technology and social media. Email and facebook alone have led me to write infinitely more than I have written for any other reason. These same things have also allowed me to access ideas and thoughts faster, probably influencing the way I have grown up and my personal beliefs. ¬†Television doesn’t interest me. Nor does newspaper. My only interaction with outside stories, opinions, or ideas comes directly from my contact with people in real life, and my contact with the internet.
