dig·it·al im·mi·grant

A person born or brought up before the widespread use of digital technology.

Chances are that if you are reading this, you are not a digital native. Think three-year old with iPad. Being an early adopter of technology back in 1976, my experience grew from mainframe computers (IBM, Burroughs) to some of the first microcomputers (Altair, Commodore, Radio Shack, and Apple). Back in the late 70's, I came across a book, Computer Power and Human Reason,  written by  MIT professor, Joseph Weisenbaum.  What made this a landmark book and still relevant today, was its examination about the relationship of human beings to technology. Here is an interesting comparison of then and now and invites where we might be headed and its impact on our lives.  A Warning for the Post-Augmented Age.
