Technology is a constantly evolving industry, but with evolution requires understanding of its fundamentals. In the modern era, a mass majority of the population spends countless hours staring at a computer or smartphone screen with little to no grasp on how it actually functions. Characters and industry experts in the Robert Harris novel, Enigma, Steve Lohr’s New York Times article “Where Non-Techies Can Get With Programming” , and the Natasha Singer New York Times article “How Silicon Valley Pushed Coding Into American Classrooms” voiced their unique opinions on why knowing basic computer coding languages are so important. Everyone should have access to computer science education. Considering teens spend an average of nearly nine hours glued to a screen every day, according to The Washington Post, they should understand how their messages arrive before their eyes.
Being inspired by another person's work can help and guide you to build your own ideas, but simply taking their work and claiming it as yours is not permitted. The third and last point Gladwell brought up about plagiarism is that writers evolve as time continues and from that, they must have some point of inspiration when writing. Writing can almost be impossible to create a piece that is original or using words that have not been used before which in turn makes it hard for people to not use others work as a foundation for what they are trying to bring to the reader. Plagiarism is a topic in all schools that are discussed among students that it is never all right to use someone else’s work as your own. It sounds simple enough but, it can be hard to write on a topic that is an original piece.

Evidence shows that ordinary people are struggling with an addiction to their status online, which causes them to be distracted from the relationships around them. Along with this, depression has taken a presence among the social media population due to the pressure and comparison that comes from the public eye. Another startling aspect of social media is the permanent consequence that can come from controversial decisions, such as tweeting about transgender agendas or sending nude photos. While some people view the aspects of connectivity and business expansion that social media present as crucial to society, they are really not as important as commonly understood. Along with this, online networking provides a tendency for users to present themselves to man and not to God, which goes against what scripture teaches.

If one word could describe a person’s life, the word would be “busy.” People are constantly engrossed in one task or another, or they need to fulfill obligations out of compulsion. Either way, there never seems to be a moment when people find free time. Or so it seems. Nowadays, busyness has become an excuse for people to avoid honoring their obligations.

Rather than communicate on the telephone by speaking, we text or rely on social media to do the talking for us. We are so concerned with impressing other people and worrying what they will think, that we ourselves, stop communicating. We tell people what we believe they want to hear, or what we believe will make us more appealing to that person or that group of people, rather than say what needs to be said or say what we feel is important. We are constantly checking the number of “followers” or “subscribers” or “friends” that we have across various platforms. When we notice that someone has more than us, it causes us to feel less important or more insignificant.
It seems that being perpetually distracted had become the norm, and that in order to be truly and fully present, intentional effort must be made. For example, many people use phones as a way to make plans with other people, or to explore future possibilities. While this is positive, it shouldn 't be allowed to get in the way of what is going on right now. Technology should by all meany be used to make plans, but one the plans are set in motion the phone should be set down so that you can actually enjoy what you 're doing. Living in the future may seem appealing, with its infinite options, but n reality it can 't hold a candle to existing in the moment and being involved with those around you.
