Composition 4  Short Paper Assignment Prof. Sommers Due Date: Monday, September 26th **You must bring a hard copy of this assignment with you to class. Please make  sure your paper follows the formatting guidelines as outlined in the syllabus.** In Phaedrus, the character Socrates criticizes writing, which, at the time, was a new form  of technology. Choose a specific form of technology (this can be very broad, anything  from the internet to an app to a website to an electronic device to a social media platform  to an electric pencil sharpener). In a cohesive, three­paragraph essay of 400­500 words, ­first, describe the advantages/positive aspects of this technology (e.g. how it improves  on what was there before, how it allows you to do new things, etc.) ­then, describe the disadvantages/negative aspects of this technology (e.g. what are its  problems, what the old way of doing things did better, what was lost, etc.) ­finally, consider how one can combat the potential downsides of this technology. Patricia Pouso Comp II 9/26/2016 Prof. Sommers The Age of the Internet  Write an intro: The internet has many pros, including increasing connectivity and  interaction across borders, however there are also negative aspects to the internet  mostly because of the loss of physical social connection and human interaction in  person… these can be dealt with through using the medium of the internet with  moderation blah blah blah.  present broad argument, introduce topic 1, topic 2,  introduce conclusion topic 3.   Remove is & be verbs if possible to cut down on word count   Remove the “even” in most of the sentences  The Internet has expanded human understanding in ways comparable to what  writing did during Plato’s era. Discussing and presenting ideas became more convenient  because of the rise of a new medium for human thought. The newfound tangibility of  ideas via paper and now webpages has allowed them to spread further. There is a new  space to document the past and present. People are more informed and able to connect  with people from all around world, closing the gap between varying cultural perspectives. Globalization results from this network of communication. Not only is this open­ mindedness applicable to cultural understanding but also to the interpretation of  information. Within seconds, we have access to practically any piece of intellectual  property to exist. Besides its social implications, the internet has changed business, it’s  added a new dimension to marketing as well as made it even more convenient to  exchange goods and services. The internet has even changed how we view politics  because the information we receive is less regulated with various media outlets  presenting things differently. Although the internet establishes a human connection, it is a specific form that  lacks any physical bonds. Arguably, the internet is just another means of distraction. Due  to its escapist qualities, people may feel disconnected from their surroundings and live  vicariously through a screen without actually interacting with real people. The  psychological consequences of the internet also include how vulnerable we are to the  type of information we receive. It is very easy to be exposed to traumatic images and to  have our anxieties preyed on because of how overwhelming the internet can be. The  internet also compromises our privacy because all the personal information we put on it. I grew up on the brink of the information age, I got to spend my early childhood  going outside because in the early 2000’s, it was easier to avoid being attached to a  laptop 24/7. People need to be less addicted to being constantly plugged in. There needs  to be a balance between the realm of the internet and the real world. We need to  distinguish between the information we’re receiving and the truth. Handling the internet  requires responsibility and self­control that can be accomplished by the little things, such  as turning off our phones at dinner or not looking at them during a conversation. The  internet has bonded us to technology so we simply need to regain some of our humanity.
