Email is for Old People

A few years ago, my then-teenaged daughter announced to me that "email was for old people." Apparently, researchers are now proving this. A NYT article, The Children of Cyberspace, points out some interesting new research.

Here is a fascinating excerpt:
"One obvious result is that younger generations are going to have some very peculiar and unique expectations about the world. My friend’s 3-year-old, for example, has become so accustomed to her father’s multitouch iPhone screen that she approaches laptops by swiping her fingers across the screen, expecting a reaction."
