It's the greatest time to be alive / by Dan Weingrod

That's what my son said to me yesterday on the way home from the airport. "Wikileaks is changing the shape of information and openness, we could have a cure for AIDS and NASA proved that life can develop in a whole new way. What a great time to be alive!"

I have faith in this generation to figure it out. When I hear people complaining about how they spend too much time on computers, too much time scanning instead of reading, too much time in unfocused activity I always retreat to a core belief that somehow they will make it work and prove us wrong.

And I'm happy when that belief is confirmed.
