Conceptual Natives


Amongts all this hoo-hah about digital natives, isn’t there something more important?

For sure, we need people who are digitally comfortable. But, surely it’s more important to be conceptually native?

    One of these days I was talking to an old sociology professor of mine about “Contagious Ideas that Change the Conversation” and he indicated me a book about rumors written in 1987, long before internet brought out conversations as a subject of discussion.

    The interesting thing about the book is that, because of its age, it doesn’t get stuck into technical information about rumors over the web. It talks about how rumors are born and how they spread between people.

    I’m beginning to read it. Seems like a great book.
