As compare to Deborah Tannen in her essay, Gender Gap in Cyberspace has expressed her way of using and benefiting from the usage of technology and more specifically, the use of computers and internet. In this essay Deborah Tannen has highlighted that difference in communication between males and females. She explains her experience that how she found out men being more interested in communicating through e-mails as compare to women who spend more of their time talking on phone. Both the essays clearly highlight the way the technology and its usage is perceived by the two genders and most specifically, how women react to technology.
I enjoyed reading Merrill Markoe experiences more than Deborah Tannen because of the fact that many women or many men, or both of them; spend a lot of time on internet taking different quizzes. One writer used the technology as a way to explore her inner side which I believe every person does it and the other writer explores the world of technology as a tool to communicate effectively with her male counterparts and to enhance her writing skills.
