A lot of parents, employers and professors are angry about today’s youth. They argue that young people are net-addicted, inattentive and losing their social skills. They are also narcissistic, and a new book even calls them the “Dumbest Generation.”
My research says none of this is true. I am optimistic about the potential of young people today. I call them the Net Generation, since these older teenagers and young adults are so bathed in bits that they think the Internet is part of the natural landscape. To them, digital technology is no more intimidating than a refrigerator or toaster.
