More on "These Kids Today"

My friend writer/producer/visionary R.S. Field (who deserves his own wing in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, if for nothing else writing "Miss Missy from Old Hong Kong") alerted me to a book which examines themes similar to what I wrote about in my last post. The book "Born Digital: Understanding the First Generation of Digital Natives" by John Palfrey and Urs Gasser is reviewed here: www.alternet.org/story/109068. The review itself is very insightful. Clearly, to paraphrase, "something is happening and we don't know what it is..." but I think we are just beginning to understand the implications for intellectual property rights in the future.
