In the article, "The New Literacy, " by Clive Thompson, he talks about how technology is helping our society. The main topic of the article was how the Internet is making our generation more literate, not less literate as many (older) people assume. Basically, the author maintains that just going on the Internet to different Web sites and reading plus using social networking sites such as FaceBook, where people interact and correspond through words, gives people more exposure to literacy than in pre-Internet days. The only drawback to things like texting and Twitter is that you "aint" learn how to spell "rite."
