Update On Google Generation Myth Report

This is an update to the January 17, 2008 Library Boy post entitled British Library Study Shows Google Generation A Myth.

That post described a study commissioned by the British Library that poked big holes in the widely disseminated idea that younger people, a "born digital" generation, are somehow naturally info-experts, having bathed in a Web environment for their entire lives.

One can listen to the British Library press conference podcast of January 16, 2008.

The list of speakers includes:

  • Lord Triesman, Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Department for Innovation, Universities, and Skills of the UK
  • Ian Rowlands and Professor David Nicholas, authors of the report
  • Dr Malcolm Read, Executive Secretary, Joint Information Systems Committee, co-sponsor of the report
  • Dame Lynne Brindley, Chief Executive British Library
