My topic being about how the world is shaped by technology and screens, the site listed above is relevant because the author briefly discusses the historical changes from machines that was the drive of the Industrial Revolution. Throughout his essay, he dwells into how our devices that may be invented in the future with shape our lives, similar to what our current technology has done. It is a credible source because the author has correctly identified himself as being part of a educational institution thus using a domain of edu. There is a use of clear and academic language that would also allow the reader to better trust this content.

The video is relevant to my topic of technology shaping our lives as dicussed by Nicholas Mizoeff in How to See the World. This is because Sherry Turkle, a Cultural Analyst and Professor at MIT University in the United States talks about how our cell phones in our everyday lives alters our connection with the world and with others. This source is reliable because it is from the certified and well known website, TED Talk as well as being well qualified to the topic speaker.
