Cyberliterature: The Next Generation…

In an attempt to catch up on some cyberlaw reading, one issue has caught my attention about a number of recent publications.  More and more authors are now focusing their work squarely on the new generation of “digital natives” and their experiences of the Internet and associated technology.  Examples of this are Lawrence Lessig’s “Remix“, Henry Jenkins’ “Convergence Culture“, and John Palfrey/Urs Gasser’s “Born Digital“.  As was pointed out last year in a number of sessions at the First Annual Privacy Law Scholars’ Conference, hosted by our blog-master, Dan Solove, this generation has very different experiences to past generations as they are the first generation to be born with – and to grow up surrounded by – all of this technology that we are now beginning to take for granted.  It is an interesting shift in the literature that some of the more prominent “digital immigrants” are now focusing their work on the “digital natives'” point of view.
