Chris-- this is why I love RTH-- dialogue, dialogue, dialogue! I find that, as a parent (and two of our kids are also at Mac), I tend to be sympathetic to the hopes and dreams of the young people I encounter, yourself included-- and I mean that with no condescension at all, but actually with a certain degree of deference to their greater energy and in some areas more up-to-date knowledge than my own. The young people I know through our own kids are all hard-working, with very definite ideas of the kind of world they'd like to live in. Sure, they've got their faults, some borne of their relative youth, but don't we all have our faults, some borne of our own stages in life?

What differs is that we have amazingly extensive access to technology, whereas past generations were severely limited in their ways to connect.

It's true that technology is an amazing tool in many ways. However, it, too, has its own severe limitations as a way to connect with others. I would call it simply one way among many that can be very efficient depending on your needs.
