My first post on this site at the beginning of the semester was about a conversation I had had with my older brother. He complained that I was on my phone while we were sitting silently in a car, then lectured me on how the internet is changing people. I dismissed him. Two weeks later, I found myself reading Carr in this class.
For this assignment I recreated the original conversation with my brother by writing a dialogue and performing it with a voice actor I know (unfortunately, Skype didn’t pick up his audio too well and its fuzzy and echoes).
I chose to do this because I wanted to revisit the first thing I did in this class. I think I was a little hasty back then to buy into Carr’s doom and gloom, and wanted to have another chance to present what I was thinking back then.
