There are people who grew up in with the Internet, videogames, instant messaging, phones in their pockets, downloaded music and a library on their laptops. They are "digital natives." They've been networked most or all of their lives. There are people who grew up before this. They didn't have the Internet or cell phones or social networking, etc. They're quite comfortable with technology but they didn't grow with it. They are "digital immigrants." There are also people who grew up somewhere in-between.
How important do you see the differences being between people who grew up in these different eras? How does it impact how people think, learn, work and play? Are there barriers to understanding each other?
