The first generation of "Digital Natives"--children who were born into and raised in the digital world--are coming of age, and soon our world will be reshaped in their image. Our economy, our politics, our culture, and even the shape of our family life will be forever transformed. But who are these Digital Natives? And what is the world they're creating going to look like?

In Born Digital, leading Internet and technology experts John Palfrey and Urs Gasser offer a sociological portrait of these young people, who can seem, even to those merely a generation older, both extraordinarily sophisticated and strangely narrow. Exploring a broad range of issues, from the highly philosophical to the purely practical, Born Digital will be essential reading for parents, teachers, and the myriad of confused adults who want to understand the digital present--and shape the digital future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Nicholas Negroponte, author of "Being Digital"
""Born Digital" offers an excellent primer on what it means to live digitally. It should be required reading for adults trying to understand the next generation."

Howard Gardner, author of "Five Minds for the Future" and "Multiple Intelligences"
From now on, any attempt to understand what it is like to grow up or to live one's life in a digital world must begin with this outstanding, original synthesis."

Lawrence Lessig, author of "Code" and "Free Culture"
"Digital technologies are changing our kids in ways we don't yet understand. This beautifully written book will set the framework for a field that will change that. It is required reading for parents, educators, and anyone who cares about the future."
