Kelleher, Kevin. “How the Internet Changed Writing in the 2000s.” January 3, 2010. Web. September 19, 2013.
This article discussed how writing has evolved because of the Internet. The author writes about how people are now writing more and how as a result, writing becomes less strenuous. Important points that were made were that people’s brains react differently to what they’re reading on the Internet verses when they read tangible script—the internet form of reading is essentially skimming, which thus involves a different type of writing to successfully communicate with Internet readers. The author thus argues that the less formal form of writing on the Internet cannot be substituted for more traditional forms of writing because they are two different things. This is exactly what my thesis is about. In addition, the author uses examples and various studies that are helpful to my argument.
