Come join John Palfrey, co-author of "Born Digital: Understanding the First Generation of Digital Natives" as he talks on a broad range of topics concerning Digital Natives.

Children who were born into and raised in the digital world are coming of age, and soon our world will be reshaped in their image. Our economy, our politics, our culture and even the shape of our families will be forever transformed. John Palfrey answers the question: Who are these Digital Natives? 

John Palfrey is Henry N. Ess Professor of Law and Vice Dean for Library and Information Resources at Harvard Law School and a faculty director of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.

This lecture will be held on Friday March 11, 10:00am - 11:30am at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building of The New York Public Library, 42nd St. and 5th Ave.
