I've been slacking on the posts, which I'll blame on the job hunt, but I'll try to catch up a bit. It's a bit tough to find journal articles on technology and language, because I keep getting computer speech technology. I'll keep looking using other keywords though. I do think examining media as a how-to for new technology will be easier than examining language, so I'll delve deeper into that.

After doing some thinking on my topic, I think my paper would be much easier and much better if I focus on news media's role as an educator during the technology boom that's occurred in the past 10 years. I'll examine news stories that talk about the Internet, such as chat rooms, bandwidth, viruses, etc. Many articles explain what new technologies are, how they work, and how we can all use them. Hopefully, I'll find that earlier articles talk more about new innovations that are fairly focused on a narrow group of users, and that more recent articles give more general information about more widely used technologies.
