Technical communication is an integral part of my professional and personal life. It is technical and specialized hence conveys on a diverse and global spectrum to specific, varying levels of understandings. As a student, I am a provider as well as the audience of this type of communication. Instuctions for class assignment or the slides used by my professors during lecture are a form technical communication I often encountered and utilize daily. My assignments, lab reports and even my words here in openlab in turn provides technical communication to an immediate audience.


2. How can a technical communications perspective help you understand how you are connected to others through both technology and culture.

Technical communication communicates on a global scale and connects people from various ethnicities and backgrounds. My smart phone and computer keeps me connected to the world. As a fairly regular participant of social media, such as instagram and facebook, I am connected to many kinds of people from various types of backgrounds, more so now, than I have ever been in the past. Art music, fashion,  creative writing and humanitarianism are a few of the many things I enjoy as a result og technical communication.
