The kids are alright

"Mr Tapscott identifies eight norms that define Net Geners, which he believes everyone should take on board to avoid being swept away by the sort of generational tsunami that helped Barack Obama beat John McCain. Net Geners value freedom and choice in everything they do. They love to customise and personalise. They scrutinise everything. They demand integrity and openness, including when deciding what to buy and where to work. They want entertainment and play in their work and education, as well as their social life. They love to collaborate. They expect everything to happen fast. And they expect constant innovation."

every single one is true. speed being the most important. i want something faster than instant. ie wiki knowledge.

one thing i will say is it's a shame so many writers/journalists are losing jobs. good writing is extremely hard to do. the process is far from instant and should be paid well as such.
