Trends: Born Digital

In Trends on December 7, 2009 at 12:55 pm

OUT WITH THE OLD and in with the new–Born Digital is a great read as we leave behind the first decade of the 21st century and look ahead to what’s next, although it’s not that hard to see if you closely examine the generation of young people who were born into and raised in the digital world, as authors John Palfrey and Urs Gasser have done. The “digital natives” are now coming of age and our economy, politics and culture will be transformed. Whether you are a digital native, teach or raise digital natives, or work with them–get to know your future in this at once philosophical and hands-on book. Er, wiki. And facebook page. Also, there’s a YouTube channel. And don’t forget MySpace and Del.icio.us. But mostly it’s a good, old-fashioned book. Actually pick up your copy ($18.68) through Amazon, or virtually begin to understand this new generation at the Born Digital website.
