AbstractProbably more words have been written about Google than about any other site, but as I was searching for a site to review in the spirit of this Net Generation special issue, it was to Google that I returned over and over, searching for "Net Generation."And it occurs to me that, if any site represents the Net Generation best, it is Google. The Net Generation, we are told, is "curious," "independent," "contrarian," "intelligent," "adaptable," "confident," "focused" and "globally conscious" (Riverdeep n.d., "Characteristic Checklist"). These are exactly the traits one would expect from someone who uses Google.
