Don Tapscott gets it all wrong about the "Net Generation":
[T]he new generation is turning into a political juggernaut that will dominate and change U.S. politics in the future. .. They have at their fingertips the most powerful tool for informing, organizing and mobilizing. What's more, they know how to use it effectively, by communicating directly with each other, instead of waiting for orders from campaign headquarters.
And they won't settle for politics as usual. Having grown up digital, they will want to be involved in the act of governing by contributing ideas before decisions are made. What's more, they'll insist on integrity from politicians; if politicians say one thing and do another, they'll use their digital tools to find out, and spread the news.
Along with possibly being a decisive factor on Nov. 4, afterward they'll shake up the business of government. No matter who wins, the new president will have a tiger by the tail.
Lots of young people are voting for Obama & Young people use the Internet => The Net is giving rise to a new era of participation and blah blah blah.
