In Mr. Fisch's video "2020" what matters is that technology is transforming the world. It will effect education because the technology will be so advanced that we will not need school any more, because the internet will have everything there is to know and students could just cheat on every assignment they have.This is like Mr. Fisch's video "Did you Know" when he talks about how there will be laptops that will be smarter than the human race someday.

In the article "Solar Power Plant is Coming to Brush" by an anonymous of the Denver Post what matters is that Colorado is making solar energy plant, which will provide jobs. This is very important that Colorado has done this becasue it will create more enregy for a lot of Colorado and also provide over 380 jobs and in this economy that is very good for people who have not been able to find jobs. When people get jobs they can have money and then when more people get jobs it makes the economy better.

In the article " Boulder filmmaker sues over use of Warren Miller" by Jason Blevin what matters is that people are getting their name put out to the world without their consent. This could be very dangerous becasue someone could have their name out in the world and not know it. This could lead to geeting their identity stolen. Then they will not know how it happened and be in alot of trouble because of their name being put out into the world without your consent.

In the movie "A VIsion of Students Today" by Dr. Wesch, what matters is that most collage students do not pay attention in class or do all of their homework. It is very important that all collage students do their homework becasue they are wasting there money and time. Also if they have a scholarship and theyare not doing their homework or classwork they can lose their scholarship. I can relate this to myself because homework in highschool is a very large percentage of your grade so it is important to do.

In the article "Boulder homeless man set ablaze by fellow transient" by an anonymous author of The Denver Post, what matters is that people in the world are resorting to violence for no reason. This is kind of like murder. Why do people kill other living human beings? They do not even care. All they are doing is taking someone away from their family because they felt like killing someone. Also what matters is that people are so angry at their life that they do this kind of thing; instead, they could go get help.

In the article "CU flu cases seem to be leveling off" by The Assicated Press what matters is that the H1N1 flu cases at CU has gone gone down by 60. This is important becasue it is showing that a very dangerous flu has gone down in the size of cases. Also what matters is that students at CU can go back and learn and get a education to suceed in life. The school says that they will not test unless they are very sick which is very bad those students could have H1N1 and can spread it around the whole school and take many kids out of school.

In the article "The New Literacy" by Clive Thompson what matters is that technology is making our world full of slangs and horible English. This is making the world having more problems with comunication. I can relate this to the movie "The Machines Are Using Us" by Dr. Wesch he states that the machines of the world are learning from us with everything we do on them. So this articleand movie both talk about things that technology does to us. Also in another movie we wacthed was "Did You Know" by Karl Fisch he said that texting is very popular and there are millions of texts sent everyday. This brings back the fact that texting is making the English language sloppy.

In the video "The Machines are using us" by Micheal Wesch what matters is that every time we do something on a computer we teach it something. When we teach the computer something which is almost every day we make the computer smarter. It matters to the world because we are all making and teaching machines that might become smarter than us. I can realate this video to Karl Fisch's video "Did you know" in his movie he stated that by 2013 there will be computer than will exceed the human brain in knowledge. One moret hing that matters is what this will do to education when students go home and do homework on the computer they are teaching it and soon all those computers will be smarter than the student.

In the article "Health advisory issued as smoke flows into Colorado" by Howard Pankratz what matters is that a there is a health concern in Colorado because of fires thousands of miles away. This has a big impact on many people that have lung problems I have asthama and it the haze has made my asthma alot worse when I have football practice. Also this haze can worsen some peoples conditions which is not good. The haze may go away but until then there is still a major health concern for Colorado.
