Thank you so much. I had been involved in the digital humanities academia scene at a fairly young age, and was the 'Token Native' in a lot of respects. I had my failings with the word, and told them that if they wanted a real opinion on how "Digitally Native" my generation was, that they should spend half an hour in a Campus Computer Lab Help desk. A lot of people today understand computers and the internet in the same way that I understand my car: I press a button, it goes, I turn a wheel, it moves. Anything beyond that is a mystical voodoo. 

There is, of course, another significantly more subtle use of the term 'digital native', one that imparts no unique skill upon the generation, but rather demarcates a time where people lived with revolutionary tools like, say, Hypertext. This is a far more interesting idea to me: studying out the underlying effects of digital nativity (A generation growing up with the ability to message anyone they know at any time, and take a picture of anything  they want, all from a device in their pocket) rather then the idea that people born after 1980 are just real whizbangs with the computermatron.

Hey Guys. A script for a comic that, with luck, will be appearing in an upcoming publication focused on Boston Superheroes. Read, critique, enjoy. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jdOjh8I0_Hu8Wt1dJrXV23nwObobXbbQU-F0X5xN5Dg/edit

There are two paw prints on my computer screen at a really impossible angle that make me think that cats believe you operate a computer by jumping on it and smacking wildly. Kitty wants to google. Kitty don't know how.
