My husband is one of those people who regularly pulls out the old “back in my day” stories whenever the conversation revolves around technology, or books or music or. . . just about anything. My son is on the other side consuming the same quantity of words and music and information as we did just in a different way.
Facebook just posted a heartfelt video that illustrates this point beautifully as part of their “Coming of Age on Screens” study. Mom talks about passing notes in school, daughter talks about sending texts. Then the parents and kids share bits of their lives with each other; hardcopy verses digital. No kidding, I was crying by the end.
Excuse me a moment while I wipe away the tears, then we can talk business.
