"Digital Natives are young people who have grown up around digital technologies and seem to instinctively understand the technology.  Digital Immigrants (the rest of us), on the other hand, may be fascinated by and may have adopted many aspects of the new technologies, but because they have not grown up with these digital tools, they don’t use them as instinctively as the natives."    ~ Mark Prensky, 2001
