Don Tapscott: more on growing up digital

This is a short interview of author Don Tapscott (Grown Up Digital) and family talking about growing up in the digital world.

Interesting that when discussing multi-tasking. He describes the difference between the young and those older.  The Read/Write web also posted something about the topic of Multi-tasking, The Older You Are, the Better You Multi-Task (If You’re a Woman).

In new data, released by Integrated Media Measurement Inc. (IMMI), it claims to give us insight into how men and women engage in “simultaneous media use.”  According to the study, it’s more common for women to watch TV and use the computer than it is for men. What’s more, women supposedly get better at this multi-tasking as they age. I always though that it was a given that women were better at multi-tasking, and not just in a digital sense, because they have been doing it in all sorts of areas for years. This study just adds more weight to my long held beliefs.
