"hank #od $or "echnology %hen & 'as gro'ing up & used to go to 'ork 'ith my parents because they both 'orked $or the same company, the company 'as o'ned by my grand$ather. (o'e)er, & remember computers and technology back then being big bulky computers that had a black screen and green lettering and you 'ould input data. "hese computers 'ere smaller then 'hat my mother had as a high school student and a college student, she said they had computers that 'ere the si*e o$ rooms and there 'ould be one screen and it 'ould take $ore)er to do an application. "echnology today has shaped my literacy narrati)e because & am a terrible speller and 'ith the ad)ancements o$ Microso$t %ord & am able to type a document and ha)e the ability to check my spelling at the end. %here as back in the day, they had type'riters and i$ you made a mistake it 'as a huge problem to $i+, i$ you could $i+ it at all. "he ne' 'ays o$ communicating such as te+t messages, e,mail and instant messages ha)e created a ne' language, a more abbre)iated languages ho'e)er 'ith phones coming out 'ith $ull keyboards and the ability to te+t and reply )ery easily the language has )astly reduced in abbre)iations. -s a young teenager your $irst phone, 'here & came $rom, 'as a ra*or $lip phone and $or you to send a te+t message you 'ould ha)e to hit a digit multiple times to get to the letter you 'anted, so there$ore there 'ere many abbre)iations $or 'ords or phrases so it could cut time do'n on responses but that is not the case anymore.
