Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
according to this article the idea that all young people are "digital natives" doesn't hold that much water
"We found no evidence for any discontinuity in technology use around the age of 30 as would be predicted by the Net Generation and Digital Natives hypothesis," says the report.

"The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists..

I am very odd. One day I will one-up myself and get even.
I am an emergent phenomenon of the universe and merely a life changing speck in the nearly infinite cosmos. This is what you are, too. Only your place is different -- and due to chaos, you are something entirely different. What we have in common is that we are both examples of emergent properties of the universe, entropic epiphenomena. To me, that makes us very special!
