The Evolution of Communication
I found this picture on stumbleupon last night and immediately thought of this class. It's basically a summary of what we've been talking about thus far and supports the article "Is Google Making Us Stupid?" It seems to be saying that we've reached our maximum potential and Twitter is going to be our downfall. I can see how this makes sense, but on the other hand, I can see this as a good thing. Fewer characters could be representative of our limited knowledge. OR it could just mean we are being challenged to say what we need to in fewer words. We have to get to the point instead of adding fluff and stuff. Of course, this potential for intelligence is negated when ppl tlk like this 2 make thr pt n lmtd chrctrs. (Oh WOW that was hard to do! How do people write like this voluntarily?????)
What do you think? Do you see another message in this comic?
