My daughter is seven going on twenty-seven (at least in her mind). I’m fascinated at how she views the world. For example, so much of her media is on demand that she doesn’t ask me to turn off the radio, she asks me to “pause” it. Apparently I’m not the only one experiencing these sorts of shifts through the eyes of the young. Check out this article by Brad Stone in the New York Times called “The Children of Cyberspace: Old Fogies by Their 20s.”
As I learn to type with my thumbs on my new Droid, I wonder how much I don’t grasp about what technology can do for me (or to me?). What will be my equivalent of keeping all my information on business cards because it’s always been good enough?
