<nettime> Growing Up Digital: review

At the Feb 98 Connecting All Americans conference one of the better speakers
was Don Tapscott, a Canadian who heads a think tank/market research firm
called Alliance for Converging Technology. His most recent book is Growing
Up Digital: The Rise of the Net Generation. It describes the characteristics
of youth who are coming of age at the end of the century. He lets the kids
to a lot of the talking.

I reviewed the book in the April edition of FirstMonday, a peer reviewed
Internet journal. Though I found some of it quite compelling, I was also
somewhat critical about other parts. You can read the review at:
