Free digital copy of @zephoria’s *It’s Complicated*

I heard danah boyd (intentionally lower-case) discuss her book, It’s Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens, at the Ford Foundation yesterday. Many thanks to Gina Marcel for alerting me to the opportunity after she saw danah tweet an invite.

danah’ research has led her to understand that kids aren’t addicted to technology. Rather, they’re addicted to socializing. They’d much prefer to meet up in person, but when they can’t physically gather due to curfew restrictions or other restraints, they meet up online. danah talked about many other things I’ve heard her share before – she’s always compelling – using great anecdotes from her years of researching teens and her own experiences.

danah offers a free PDF of her book here: http://www.danah.org/books/ItsComplicated.pdf
