Tech creates a bubble for kids - Yahoo! News

Raised by parents who stressed individualism and informality, these young people grew up in a society that is more open and offers more choices than in their parents' youth, says child and adolescent psychologist Dave Verhaagen of Charlotte.

I'd like to end things with a roll-up of all this year's Web 2.0 discussions and explanation.
