100 Things Kids May Never Know About

i recently came across this post in wired magazine’s geek dad section – the title of the post is: “100 things your kids may never know about.” i love how telling this is – and how much it reveals about this digital generation.

these are a few of my favorites:

  • Shopping only during the day, Monday to Saturday.
  • Phone books and Yellow Pages.
  • Newspapers and magazines made from dead trees.
  • Not knowing exactly what all of your friends are doing and thinking at every moment.
  • Privacy.
  • Waiting several minutes (or even hours!) to download something.
  • Getting lost. With GPS coming to more and more phones, your location is only a click away.
  • Answering machines.
  • Phones with actual bells in them.
  • Fax machines.
  • Vacuum cleaners with bags in them.
  • Cash.
  • Libraries as a place to get books rather than a place to use the internet.
  • Watching TV when the networks say you should. Tivo and Sky+ are slowing killing this one.
  • Recording a song in a studio.
