When I hear technology and literate I think about the computer. But In Moores article I realized its a lot more than just a computer. It is everything around us. Everything is technology and would almost impossible to function without it. All of use technology everyday in our lives but we just do it, we dont think how does this work? Like in the article about the stove, when you cook you know how to set the settings and how long to cook it but do you dont understand how the heat is getting to the food and how the stove stores all the heat. Or even emailing someone. Many people have no idea what happens after they hit the send button. Some how it magically gets there.
As we get older we loss the sense of wonder. Have you ever been around a 3 or 4 yr old and you tell them something and then keep asking why or how. They are so eager to learn and understand. How come we don’t say why or how? We get the basic gist of it and move on. We feel like its unnessary to understand. We know when you hit the send button it will get to where its supposed to be with no questions asked.
Moore is saying we have to be the 3 or 4yr old again and start asking how and why to understand the technology around us.
