Being electrate means being technology literate. We live in a world where 70% of communication were done through the use of technology, for instance, cellphones and the internet. The overall interaction between human beings depend largely on technology, I can’t imagine what the world would be like without it as we are so immersed in such an electrate environment. Being electrate also means that we understood the use of technology and both the positive and negative effects that it could cause because now that we see an clear overdose and unreasonable reliance on technology. Personally I’m starting to see an interesting trend as we are moving along through time, people often find it funny nowadays to actually purchase physical books from the bookstore, because they got so used to the whole google search and online information websites that they no longer feel the need for actual books. We came to see a lot of disintegration and disappearance of everyday things that have accompanied us since the beginning of time due to the easy access of technology. To become electrate is to understand and be able to survive in this electronical world that buzzes from morning til night.
