SCEN103 11/19 Group Exercise
Consider that the transistor had not been invented:
- Attempt to describe some personal events, at least one per group member,
that would have prevented
you from being here today (in class, alive) except that the transistor
was indeed invented and miniaturized so successfully.
- Next time, we will consider the "down side" of transistors in our society...
(Dan, Jill, Ron, Sam)
- Alarm clock wouldn't have gone off.
- Check e-mail for announcements.
- Check digital watch for start time of class.
- Transistors allowed hot water for shower.
- Thermostats heated our houses, so that we didn't die of cold.
(Adrienne, Allie, Bridget, Corey, Jason, Josh)

- Alarm clock wakes us up in the morning.
- Hamburger was cooked in order to prevent food poisoning
- If heat didn't work -> freeze to death.
- We couldn't access on-line syllabus so we wouldn't know when
to come to class.
- If the clothes dryer didn't work, we couldn't come to class
because our clothes would be wet.
- With no traffic lights we would have been hit by a car and killed.
