How was technology affected society is a good area of discussion

- Talk about how MP3 has affected retail stores such as HMV, Zavvi etc.
- Advancement of medical research
- Technology blurring work and home life (Talk about productivity due to technology in office)

Always give both sides so for MP3s ease of obtaining music and technology in office blurring work and home life talk about access to emails whilst away from office also psychological impact (Stress).

Easily find some stats on that to give credence to your arguments.

Just don't know how you'll be able to fit that into 500 words

A quick google of the title should give you an idea. Always look up some books (Google books is always a good place to start) although the library is always best Roll Eyes for other people's thoughts on the issue.

But yeah, also try and bring about the fact that although technological advancement is key to economic progression, people are slowly becoming redundant as machines begin to takeover their roles.

Something along those lines.

Can go deeper into the MP3 issue, by addressing legal issues too and how that's affected society.

don't bother. go out and get drunk, shag some birds, blow your student loan on clothes and start your reading in the second year.

Find eight authors that you want to study. Read everything by them. Don't bother with anything else.

Actually fuck it, you only need six for your first term as they'll give you a reading week or two.

Obviously, doing Dickens, Hardy or George Eliot is a dick move in your first term, choose poetry.

Yeah you're pretty fucked then. At least keep in mind that you'll only need to do 3, maybe four decent essays for prep for your end of year exams. You doing middle or old english?

Could anyone do me a favour and check to see if their uni has a subscription to the journal Culture and Religion, in particular I need the article 'Two turntables and a microphone: Turntablism, ritual and implicit religion' I'd really appreciate it.
