Egypt, my daughter, and the news

by , posted on Friday, February 4th, 2011 at 10:01 am

My daughter posted this link on her facebook the other day, along with a note that says “who needs the news?”

She then promptly followed that up with a couple of facebook posts complaining about the attacks on “her” Anderson Cooper, so apparently she does still feel the need for traditional media sources. And I know for a fact that she is relentlessly checking in with DailyKos, Huffington Post and CNN and MSNBC websites for news about what’s going on in Egypt.

Still, I think the fact that she’s following all these sources – mostly from her version of the device formerly known as a “cell phone” – is an interesting take on how information is assimilated by your average member of the generation now in their 30’s.

Multiple streams, constantly streaming.
