The tools of digital media is expanding our knowledge but it comes with a price. Depending on who you ask, communication isn’t what once was and probably won’t be the same. With everything almost exclusively online as far as shopping, gathering information and communicating with people, it’s just different. It’s almost hard for us to communicate in person because of how prevalent technology has become.
Another example is, what we’re using technology for. Free speech might be free but comes with a price, same goes for the internet. To feel like the government has somewhat of control over what we’re doing, it is a way they do so. “Most of us don’t have access to the databases, software, or computing power of the NSA, FBI, and other government agencies.” Which goes to show how not so safe the internet can be. The government is always watching even when we don’t think they are.
