Wednesday Web Picks ~ Popular "Net Gen" Websites

Business week ran an article back in December 2008 entitled "The Net Generation Takes the Lead". Their subtitle states "Enabled by the Web and digital Technology, the Net Generation is transforming media, politics and culture. Will older generations stand in the way?"

Let's hope not. Hopefully there is much to learn from these capable, multi-taskers. Here are a few web sites, not in any order, that are apparently some of the most popular among this new generation of "Net capable" thinkers. And oh, let's remember to give them their opportunity to transform the world for their future. Better yet - let's adapt, learn, engage in dialog and join in creating a world "transformed"! Click on the title to be taken to the website.
