After reading the first three chapters in our book, "Here Comes Everybody," it left me with a few thoughts to ponder. One point that intrigued me was reading about how professionals of any kind are valuable during ordinary times, but become invaluable during revolutionary times (p. 69) because professionals are always concerned with threats to the profession. The book discussed scribes vs. the printing press. I had never really contemplated that the technology of the printing press completely left us without the need for scribes. Then I got to thinking about how all the industrial machines invented replaced factory workers, and how that is continuing to happen in our world daily. The internet is replacing the need of a wide range of professionals. Music corporations and newspapers must be seeing a dramatic drop in their sales these past few years. With all of these new inventions in this "technological age" we are in, I wonder what will be the next profession to be unnecessary anymore? Although this technology is good for the general public, I can't help to think about all the professionals it is putting out of business, leaving them to find new specialties. It scares me to even think if someday in the future, computers or newer technology will replace the need for teachers! I know this is a random thought to ponder, and not relevant to the education field immediately; it was just a thought going through my head as I read Ch. 3.
