The Revolution will be Twittered

There are those who say that the death of newspapers and reading in general, is an ominous sign of a thinly educated populace, unable to grasp complex issues, and that cities without real journalists will suffer for not having shoe-leather on the street. I am not sure. This generation takes in small doses of information, but does so all the time. It relies heavily on the body of knowledge assembled for them, on Wikipedia, and Google. It moves quickly, but is constantly evaluating every piece of knowledge that it receives.

It could be that we are raising the most informed decision makers ever produced.
