Children & the Internet: The Next Generation
Whine  |   Link

During our trip to LA/OC/SD last weekend we had some interesting conversations with parents of really small kids and kids themselves about the Internet. One mother said that her 2-yr-old already understood how to navigate her favorite Disney sites and could tell when "the Internet was down." I remember hearing from another friend, "Daddy, reboot." Ok what a vocabulary for a young kid. I remember my nephew even asking his uncle about making paper airplanes. My brother told him to go Google it. Amazingly enough the 7 year old was off and running over to Google to find some paper airplane designs. I was still getting to know him and showed off my paper airplane skills and flew them a few times in the backyard. It's quite amazing and I'm still impressed about the really small ones navigating and knowing the cause of why their sites weren't working properly. I can't even imagine what it will be like for us when we have kids...we already don't watch TV so it will be quite interesting.
