Reading the packet on chapter one was very interesting because I never realised how many different forms of technology there were let alone how it all changed. Reading the packet was very eye opening. Its crazy how not very long ago we didnt even have cell phones, and now adays most people wouldnt know what to do without texting their friends or family. Before when cell phones just started coming out only adult had them or got them, and now kids as young as eight years old are getting them. It used to be that if you wanted to talk to your friends you would just ride your bike to their house and talk but now kids are calling, texting, face timing, and skyping with their friends.
in a few years kids that are our age now are going to be reading this same thing only including our time and they will be thinking about how bad it must have been to be us. We think we are so lucky right now, but their will be so much more technology in a few years that we dont have any idea about. Chapter one showed and taught me a lot more than i really knew about the past technologies and how they were referred too. i believe it was very helpful to read the packey on chapter one.
