  About The Book

The first generation of “Digital Natives”—children who were born into and raised in the digital world—are coming of age and reshaping the world in their image. Our economy, our politics, our culture, and even the shape of our family life are being forever transformed. But who are these Digital Natives? And what is the world they're creating going to look like?

In this revised and updated edition of Born Digital, leading Internet and technology experts John Palfrey and Urs Gasser offer a cutting-edge 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—privacy concerns, the psychological effects of information overload, and larger ethical issues raised by the fact that young people's social interactions, friendships, and civic activities are now mediated by digital technologies—this new edition of 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.
