Digital Resurrection

by Castilino  

Today in my reading of some text, I came across this phrase 'born digital'... it is about young people today who are born and grow up playing with the latest of media technology and gadgets. By the time they start speaking and reasoning, they are experts in the use of these media, much much better than some elders who may still be stuggling to know or find out the very idea of them. This has special significance for us Salesians since the younger generations that are coming up are only progressive - though not all - and if we are to make an impact in their lives, we too need to be familiar with their world. Therefore, if not born digital, we need to at least have a digital resurrection!!

At an Apple store today I observed a young boy about the age of 3 playing at a large monitor on a low table, obviously set up for children’s play while parents were occupied. He was totally engaged. A few minutes later, to my surprise, there were not just one but two young boys playing - the other at his own monitor, same age, same clothes - identical twins. I could pick the father out in the store because of the disproportionately small backpack hanging from his shoulders. He would check in a few moments and then be off, leaving his digital babies to play.

Wow!, this was a real quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too - taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I keep putting it off and never seem to get something done

All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.
