Assignment 1 - Identify at least 3 technologies that you use everyday and and write a brief description about each. Brief does not mean one paragraph. Write each description in such a manner that describes that product/technology, its origin and evolution, how it is expected to evolve, and its relevance to society. Write as if you are communicating with your students. The criterion for a good write-up is, if someone reads about your description he/she should be motivated to learn more about the technology you have described. Friday, September 10th, is the deadline for all submissions.
