Grown Up Digital: How the Net Generation is Changing Your World - Don Tapscott I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it. Even though I already knew a lot about the info in the book, I did still pick up some interesting new stuff!

I didn't grow up with computers and video games. My childhood was mostly spent outside, playing with my friends. How times have changed. Tapscott calls the parents of today "helicopter parents" as they hover over their children and are afraid to let them go outside to play. So, rather than wanting to get out of the nest asap, the kids have been able to find their independence inside their parents homes via the net. Most of those parents have no clue what their kids are actually doing while they are online. Many will call them stupid, as they are not sitting around reading the classics and the like, but I totally disagree. I think the new generation has a lot more smarts than anyone wants to give them credit for....
