In this, the next installment of my Technology Literacy Narrative, I dive in right where my past left off. As I became more acquainted with computers, a transition occurred as I started to explore my own interests and to complete required tasks for school. This narrative was a bit more challenging, since in a lot of ways the ‘present’ really refers to a much larger time period than just this very moment. Trying to tie in my past and my present made me look for connections between prior experiences and the way in which I perceive and take advantage of the technological resources available to me now. Full disclosure, that isn’t the easiest path to retrace. From Microsoft Office to black holes, this diverse installment looks into the reasoning behind my behavior and skill set as a participant in today’s technological universe.
