Week Three Summary

This week was a little hectic for me. Not because of this class though. I actually went on a mini vacation to Universal Studios Orlando for my nieces birthday.

Though this has changed our communication for the better, I think that it has also had negative affects on us. I believe that being able to consume and send media so quickly has made us very impatient and lessened our attention span.
