Print: Dead or Alive?

Jessica's World

In my English 1101 class, my class topic covered Media and Technology. We discussed the idea of print media dying with the vast wave of media in other forms such as eBooks, internet, etc. I wanted to continue a few of my thoughts on this particular topic.

After reading a few blogs on the subject of print versus media, I couldn’t help but wonder how print media will survive in the vast, growing world of technology.

I instantly get frustrated, and don’t feel like doing it, simply because I feel like if I am to be doing something, it SHOULD be some of my school work that I am procrastinating on.
