Since the start of the well known existence of the “WEB”, the reading questions whether or not is it good for the economy and for the writers themselves and how it affects the world. As we know today, publishers have always been tough on what type of materials they want to help publish because of the word money. With the WEB now, it is easier for new writers and those who want to share their thoughts express themselves freely and easier since at this time, technology is booming worldwide.
Because of this existence, it is true the writing community might not like all these “unsupervised” expressions on thoughts yet without the WEB, we see that there was always a limit to where the writings of today and of the past ends up. One important thing in the WEB is just like what we use in class which is this very Blog. In this blog, we as students can share our thoughts and ideas throughout the world and read the thoughts of others. Of course there are problems with the WEB from glitches to bugs that exist daily, but this doesn’t mean that we will abandon every other ways to transfer out thoughts and creations. Just because of the WEB, we as humans aren’t going to give up writing on paper and pens so that in the future if anything happens to the WEB, we won’t depend fully on it. It is always better to have a extra “hard/physical” draft or everything we post online or on paper.

We live in a society where technology is constantly growing and shifting. Everyday new technologies present new and efficient ways for journalists and other media professionals. A constant growth of technology has many benefits in four areas as Pavlik states in the passage.
- First, as we all know new technologies often present new and more productive ways for journalists and other media professionals to do their work. Current hand-held gadgets can provide low-cost digital photography and efficient access to navigational services.
- Next, new technologies can turn over the nature of storytelling and media content in potentially positive and engaging ways. In Columbia University, an innovation called the “Situated Documentary” permits news consumers to visit sites of distant past or recent news.
- Third, new technologies have a large significance for the management, structure, and culture of media organizations. A news organization can explore the choice of the “virtual newsroom” which is a newsroom without walls. Pavik described, “It can be established in nearly any community using high- speed wireless Internet access and mobile media.” The virtual newsroom can be a representation of a cost-saving innovation in news coverage.
- Finally, the most important opportunity that new technologies can bring forward is the conversion of relationships between news organizations and their audiences, views, regulators, sources, and competitors.
New technology is an ever growing expansion and now that we are in the 21st century, journalism and media will be undergoing a lot of changes. Of course when there a lot of positive factors; there are also negative factors but Everyone at any age group, class or status will be or are already in a special position because as technology is growing, our lives are becoming more simple but also sophisticated. Life is made easier with technology.
