Fred Wilson despre noua generatie

Am găsit acest citat în cartea ’What Would Google Do?’ a lui Jeff Jarvis și vreau neapărat să-l împărtășesc cu voi:

It is incredibly hard to think of new paradigms when you’ve grown up reading the newspaper every morning.

But we have a generation coming of age right now that has never relied on newspapers, TV, and magazines for their information and entertainment. They are the net natives. They grew up in AOL chatrooms, IMing with their friends for hours after dinner, and went to school with a Facebook login.

The Internet is their medium and they are showing us how it needs to be used.
