From the Paper:"Through the use of media manipulation we have perpetuated the media equation theory. As technology continues to advance we find our media tools taking on more humanistic type qualities. Studies are showing that people around the world are assigning human like emotions to the interaction they receive through media tools today. As we move further into the future we will most likely continue to "humanize computers" and other media methods of communication. The media equation theory seems to be evolving as the actual behavior of humans evolves. The theory is a sound theory though rather curious as to what the future will hold."
