Dabbler This is the primary operator of many who use the internet. A dabbler is one who uses the internet irregularly. Which in one way in my opinion is good. Today’s society is too attached to the internet. The pros of being a dabbler is having more time outside and interacting with others.
As I reviewed my Gatsby essay, I noticed that there were several strengths and weaknesses when it came to my writing and format. While I feel I did commit enough time and effort during the writing process, I probably neglected to double check for the mirror errors that resulted in my grade of a low B. My grade was satisfactory, but I know with some additional adjustments I can improve upon my writing and work towards achieving a higher grade for the next assignment. In this reflection I will discuss the strengths and weakness of my writing that resulted in the grade I received. One of my strengths on this assignment was my proficient,advanced thesis statements that shaped how I wrote and responded to the three prompts in my essay.
Nicholas Carr argues in his article, “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” that the internet is changing the way we think and work for the worst.Many people disagree with this argument, and I think the internet is changing us, for the better. The internet has become a great resource in terms of education. It has allowed for communicating across the world intercultural experiences that used to be impossible. Lastly the the younger generation has grown up with the internet and is better suited for using it. Carr’s argument that the internet is making us stupid is very easy to argue when thinking about all the resources we have today.
What is more, code can be designed to privatize intellectual property, which can be frequently seen nowadays as copyright laws. To put it more simply, it allows to take down information which violates Digital Millennium Copyright Act 1998 (DMCA) (USA). As copyright infringement is one of the most serious and common problems over the cyberspace, industry started to develop code on its own behalf and it was said by Richard Spinello (2000), that computer code can have a bigger effect and force than legal system and laws. As a specific example, YouTube faces copyright infringement everyday, therefore it has it's own Digital Rights Management (a program designed to prohibit copying or uploading copyrighted material by imposing technological
The two essays I chose to revise were my rhetorical analysis and my position essay. I chose the rhetorical analysis for the polished revision and the position essay for the strategic revision. I chose both of these works because I thought they were two that could be most improved upon and would then be my best work from this course. I think my rhetorical analysis was the most enjoyable essay for me to write, and the one I put the most effort into, although it did have some flaws. Because of this, I didn’t make any major changes to it, just a few changes to make it more sharper and flow better.
With a topic I truly care about I wish I would have done a little more with my paper than I did. Grammatically, I still need a lot of improvement. I write like I would text sometimes, and that is a bad habit that needs to be broken. But just in one semester I can see my improvements though my
Throughout the term there has been many writing assignments —big or small— that helped reflect my writing process or the process itself. In the beginning of the course I felt like I was an “ok” writer, but lacked some skills such as: organization, sentence variety, and vocabulary. Also, I did not like to write and had a feeling of dislike when forced to write. I felt like I improved on everything I wanted and was seen throughout the semester. I know how to organize my ideas, the worksheets given in class to work on sentence variety really helped, and vocabulary was built on some level.
Through my educational career, I’ve been a successful writer. I received high marks on my papers because I followed the rubrics and was eloquent. I loved complex sentences that strung my thoughts together, used adjectives to detail my stances and showcased research with commas and lists. My writing style was not conducive to public relations writing. This course required me to embrace the opposite of what I was used to and almost relearn how to write for public relations.
Technology that was unthinkable ten years ago is old news today, especially regarding the Internet. The amount of data that flows through the Internet is astounding. Much of that data is our personal and private information. The Internet makes finding information on a person or company effortless. Especially, when people volunteer their private information and thoughts on social media sites It is because of this easy access that clearly defined laws protecting ones privacy need to be set.
The Advanced Writing class will help me with anything necessary that I need help with and it’ll keep me on the right track to shoot my best score on the ACTs. Unlike any other classes, this class will benefit any person outside in the real world. Although, I haven’t taken the ACTs to receive the score that would’ve helped me improve in the future, or show where I am at, I don’t have to take it to know my strengths or weaknesses in English and Writing. One of the three strengths I have in Writing is focusing on the topic that I find interesting. I ensure to include what is important in my paper, and other details that are necessary for the readers to easily understand of the point of
By deliberating how the internet and Google interfere with concentration and memory, Carr demonstrates how Google is making people stupid. Carr argues the internet has been an excellent platform for “searching, surfing and adding information to the databases of the internet” (Carr 1). Carr points out that while having immediate access to a rich source of information can have many benefits,
