Week 8

It is inevitable that our society is advancing and becoming more dependent upon technology. Computer software and web-based technology is one the most important uses of furthering ideas and connecting with people. Sometimes we'd rather believe that being an artist does no require computers and that we can do it 'the old fashion way', but these new technologies are only helping us grow and find new ideas using new medias. Fashion Design is not commonly thought of to use computers, the basics of fashion require drawing, draping, sewing, etc. But computers are helpful to every occupation. One great thing about the internet is that it's getting our ideas on a system that anyone anywhere in the world can look at. Etsys are great for selling product, deviantArt is a perfect place to display your art to the world, and blogs (much like this one) are perfect to share your thoughts, ideas, opinions, reviews, etc. Information technology is not only our future, it's our present.
