Concept Experience 2:
Why is fire hot? Why Does fire change color? and Why does fire smoke? are just a couple of the questions I asked and I asked Google a lot about fire. Google told me any and all information I could have needed to answer that question in full. The best part about this computer interaction activity is there are no stupid questions. We all know that if I wear to walk up to any individual and ask why is fire hot, I would either be laughed at, given a very strange look and ignored. Computer allow for the anonymity, it is a security procedure to Google what you are curious about. Whether it be embarrassing, simple, obvious or complex there are no fears of judgement when consulting your computer. You can feel like those five year olds that have a never ending stream of ‘but why’ questions for the closest person to listen to. Overall I think this experience can enlighten us on exactly what we depend on our computers for and what we depend on our human interactions for.
