TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED 2 In this essay, I am first going to state that I do not agree with Wendell Berry and his refusal to never purchase a computer. Computers are possibly the best advance in technology…ever. I do not see how one could live without a computer. Computers are used in almost every field even where it is most unexpected.

Teaching a child the proper use of the internet will help them to use the internet safely. Berry does not understand the importance and all of the advantages of a computer.
