Write an essay of 750-1000 words detailing a technological development and some of the hopes and fears associated with it. What are the
social and political implications of that technology to date, and what might be further ramifications in the future?
One way to approach the assignment might be to “map” out the impact of a particular development (where did it originate, how/where did it
spread its influence over time?) Non-text-based components for such would be welcome for additional credit, though should be accompanied
by a written legend or “rationale.” You must substantially reference at least one written text from the readings we have done in class.
*** You should choose something simple topic — a piece of technology that has a history, and that you think will continue to change in
the future (For example, like a car…but not smartphones or film/video). ***
*** If you use any material from sources, you need to credit it.(IMPORTANT!!) ****
** You must substantially reference at least one written text from the readings
