similarities of community memory and bulletin board system:

The community memory was there to share stories to each other record them. Also, The bulletin board system is there to share things to each other.So, I think the idea of sharing stories didn't change. I think this Sharing them with each other and saving it has continued till now. Secondly, you can leave messages and it still happens in BBS.


1. They had to record them and save them for others to hear but BBS doesn't need recording, you can post pictures, keywords and everything.

2. It is also different that they needed a computer to record things so that they need computer but BBS can be used also in phone.


Similarities and differences with the big idea of Tradition, and explain why do you think that those characteristics from the past are still part of the devices in the present or why are they different:

I think that those characteristics from the past are still part and they are different because through the history a lot of things developed and we can know what is beneficial to us and what is now. So, that's why I think there is still same things and different things.
