CIBER: Youngsters View Rather than Read the Internet

Consequences of being involved in a hoax like the Psystar one, are events that must be avoid at all costs by bloggers and professional writers. We think that's one of the reason why the life of the professional blogger isn't as easy as much may be suspecting.

And now that we are talking about professionals, do you remember you've been told many times the Gen X. are all literate about the Internets? Well, don't fall for everything you hear, particularly on the Internet. A recent study shows that this same generation are only capable of viewing but not technically reading, they rely too much on search machines and don't exercise what in the American schools is called critical thinking.

...Research-behaviour traits that are commonly associated with younger users – impatience in search and navigation, and zero tolerance for any delay in satisfying their information needs – are now becoming the norm for all age-groups, from younger pupils and undergraduates through to professors.

I am ashamed how these conclusions can be applied to big cities where broad band is accessible. My question is, what about those other cities where they don't even have dial-up. Latin America, for example has a very low Internet coverage and I don't want to quote what's happening on other regions where this service is still a luxury and they have to spotlight through radio waves.
