Grown Up Digital: How the Net Generation is Changing the World by Don Tapscott
Very interesting book if you are older than 31 to help you understand the reasons why the Net Generation is always connected and online. Full of positive opinions about the generation now 11 - 31 years old and the powerful voices they are developing to use Web 2.0 to influence companies, governments, schools and institutions to be transparent, forthright, accountable and demonstrate a concern for people and the world. Held my interest and helped me understand, as an individual just older than this group, the perspective of many in this age group. I would suggest that not all children, teens and young adults are as attached to the internet, creating information, and holding organizations accountable, but there is a large number who are. Great read!
