Born To Surf

A short article by the father of a 3-year-old boy explains how quickly his son figured out how the internet works, and became addicted to it. In fact, he’s already complaining that the computer he gets to use (an older machine) is not as fast as the machine his parents get to use. At first (as most parents do), the father wanted to believe that his child had special abilities – but other parents tell the same basic story. Kids seem to be able to understand the basics of the internet somewhere around the age of three. Yet more evidence that the next generation will truly be an internet generation.
