Jenny’s take on the Beloit List

I blogged the Beloit list this week.
Jenny Levine, The Shifted Librarian, went further and added this list:
Their cell phones have always let them access information, not just people, wherever they are.
Video games have always been a social activity.
They have always had to narrow down search results (rather than expand them).
They have always used a different medium to communicate with their friends than with adults.
They may never write a check. (I don’t think I need the “may,” but just in case.)
They think of communication in 160-character chunks.
Their default expectation is wireless access.
They have never started a search at an “advanced” screen.
They store information and documents on keychains.
They have always copied and pasted.
“.” is pronounced “dot,” not “period.”
Great insights in her post here.
I’d add that they’ve never dialed a phone.
