Cutting it close again today, but I have a short thought.
As I follow the fights of schools to legislate digital resources out of the hands of young people, and as I follow our Congress trying to allow the music and motion picture industries censor access to websites under the pretext of piracy, I sometimes wonder how many of these rules, laws and controls will be summarily repealed by the next generation.
I think it’s healthy to remember that these battles over digital issues are going to be reconsidered by the generation that has always been surrounded by technology and lived with social media. I think that very different decisions will be made regarding access people who have always carried smartphones. I also think that there will be very different attitudes regarding privacy, by people who have always lived on Facebook.
