"Of course young people are using technology: their parents are paying for it! That's like saying I took my children to a buffet and they ate themselves silly.

They're the fastest-growing groups on Facebook. They're the biggest users of online dating. Unsurprisingly, they're the biggest users of online financial services, online medical-information sites, and e-readers. All of which are kind of hot things at the moment." -- Genevieve Bell
