Robert Crescenzi HUM.101.025 12/7/10 End of Semester Prompt D Some say that computer technology gives an unfair advantage to a privileged few. I agree with this theory.

A student can have complete knowledge of the topic, but get a failing grade on a computer-based exam if he or she is not a frequent computer user. Even right now as i type these very words, I find myself misspelling words that I would never have misspelled if I were to be handwriting them on a sheet of paper. In fact, I can promise the reader that I have forgotten to capitalize at least one "I" throughout this passage while referring to myself or forgotten to capitalize the first letter of the first word of a sentence. This is merely an example of un-natural selection, where technology advances and those who do not adapt will wither away along with the pencil and paper....
