Digital Native or Digital Dinosaur?

My latest piece for the Sydney Morning Herald, published today,  was inspired when I overheard a conversation between a grandmother and her four year old grandson outside out local library.  The little boy was tugging at his grandmother’s hand, begging to be allowed to go into the library and choose a book.  The old lady turned to the little boy, smiled sweetly and said, “We don’t need to go to the library today, Granny’s got a Kindle.”  It made me feel sad and old!  Click on the link if you want to find out why.
