“The New Literacy” by Clive Thomson is similar to, “Did You Know”, and “The Machine is Us/ing Us” which are all based on the same principle that technology and the world are growing rapidly. This connects to “Did You Know” because how can we prepare kids for future jobs we do not know about yet if their writing has deteriorated? This connects to “The Machine is Us/ing Us” because kids are using facebook and texting a lot these days and abbreviate and don’t need to write a lot. This matters to me because according to “The New Literacy” kids writing quality has fallen because of texting, facebook, and not having to write as much which means that I need to step it up in my writing and not let it get bad.
