For your second essay, you will explore the many ways in which technological innovation shapes society. Read the instructions and guidelines below carefully and review the grading rubric before submitting your work.

It does not include sources like Wikipedia, eHow, dictionaries, academic journals, or other information websites.)
Write a minimum 300 word essay that answers the following questions:
Based on the article you chose, how is the technological innovation described?
According to the article, what is the impact of the technological innovation on human society and culture? How is this similar to previous technological innovations discussed in the book?
How do you imagine the technology discussed will develop in the future, i.e. what do think the long-term impact will be?
Your essay should:
be a total of 300 words or more.
The 300 word limit DOES NOT include the questions, names, titles, and references.
It also does not include meaningless filler statements
