I'm always torn between the two viewpoints that swing from:
a) Today's kids are zombie idiots that can't read and are dooming us to an Idiocracy type scenario.
b) Today's kids are brilliant with more savvy in more ways than older generations could ever realize.
Seeing stuff like this makes me swing toward b).
Obviously it's both, with a bit too much a) and a lot in between. I don't think that the extremes have really changed all that much since I was a kid, but the "average" seems to have dropped a bit.
