In "Born Digital," leading Internet and technology experts John Palfrey and Urs Gasser offer a sociological portrait of these young people, who can seem, even to those merely a generation older, both extraordinarily sophisticated and strangely narrow. Exploring a broad range of issues, from the highly philosophical to the purely practical, "Born Digital" will be essential reading for parents, teachers, and the myriad of confused adults who want to understand the digital present--and shape the digital future.
