Growing Up Online

So tonight I watched a PBS special about growing up online. They were looking at our kids' generation and how they are the first generation to have so much online time and all that brings into thier world. They talked about the impact of myspace and facebook, IM'ing, cyber bullying, and schools needing to broach the cyber world to be able to reach them. All and all, an interesting special. You can click here to go to the PBS page and check it out for yourself.

You know, I've been thinking just the same thing. Remember the old World Book Encyclopaedias when we were at school, all lined up along the shelf from A to Z? That sort of thing has become obsolete already for the new generation with so much cyber-knowledge at their fingertips.
