*** Net Generation is the Smartest Generation Ever
[link to orweblog.oclc.org]

Contrary to the claims that video games, Facebook and constant text-messaging have robbed today’s young of the ability to think, Mr Tapscott believes that “Net Geners” are the “smartest generation ever”. The experience of parents who grew up watching television is misleading when it comes to judging the 20,000 hours on the internet and 10,000 hours playing video games already spent by a typical 20-year-old American today. “The Net Generation is in many ways the antithesis of the TV generation,” he argues. One-way broadcasting via television created passive couch potatoes, whereas the net is interactive, and, he says, stimulates and improves the brain ...
... Mr Tapscott identifies eight norms that define Net Geners, which he believes everyone should take on board to avoid being swept away by the sort of generational tsunami that helped Barack Obama beat John McCain.
Net Geners value freedom and choice in everything they do.
They love to customise and personalise. They scrutinise everything.
They demand integrity and openness, including when deciding what to buy and where to work.
They want entertainment and play in their work and education, as well as their social life.
They love to collaborate.
They expect everything to happen fast.
And they expect constant innovation

They may be the "most informed" but not sure if they the smartest.

Nope. Barring gains from better nutrition, each generation is slightly dumber than the one before it. Gains in accumulated knowledge have been disguising that fact.

BTW, I'm 26, and consider myself an intellectual throwback. 5a
It's good to be open-minded, just don't let your brain fall out.

They may be the "most informed" but not sure if they the smartest.
 Quoting: acolyte



They have access to more information than ever before. Not that they ever make use of it other that reddit or digg.

The downside to that is they don't have to use their own minds. Someone has done the thinking for them.

They might indeed be the most informed, however, from what I've seen, they're hardly the smartest.

If anything, they're among the laziest generation ever. Just try to separate them from their video games to do something physical in the "real" world that doesn't involve going to the Mall.

Good luck with that.
