PBS's new program, Digital Nation, should be required viewing for anyone old enough not to have balanced a laptop on his/her highchair tray while gumming Gerber's. For anyone younger it will merely be same old same old.
For those of my generation, it is a fascinating mix of multitasking and virtual reality that is simultaneously informative, enlightening, compelling, and just a bit disturbing.
If you've ever wondered: what's the world coming to?, this program will tell you -- vividly.
It's being streamed live at: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/digitalnation/view/ as I write, and will of course soon be repeated on one of your local PBS stations.
