OFFLINE READING

TEXT:

  • Reading 8-1: Further Explorations into the Culture of Computing

ASSIGNMENT

For today's class, think of something that technology will allow you to do 10-20 years from now that it does not allow you to do at present. That can mean automating something we now do only manually, or making it possible to do something we don't currently do at all. Think expansively, but realistically.

Prepare a brief written description of the purpose of the technological advance you have in mind, and speculate in general terms about how it will work. Follow guidelines for written work that appear on pages 3-4 of the course syllabus. Keep it under 200 or so words.
