Within a single generation, digital media and the World Wide Web have transformed virtually every aspect of modern culture, from the way we learn and work to the ways in which we socialize and even conduct war. But is the technology moving faster than we can adapt to it? And is our 24/7 wired world causing us to lose as much as we've gained? This in-depth exploration of what it means to be human in a 21st-century digital world continues a line of investigation that began in 2008, with the FRONTLINE report "Growing Up Online." The journalists attempt to understand the implications of living in a world consumed by technology and the impact that this constant connectivity may have on future generations.

What we know about living in a digital world, circa 2010

An heroic comprehensive look, circa 2010, at what we know about the way we are living in the digital world. Unfortunately in short, our research, knowledge, and understanding of digital living, in all its complex and sundry forms, can not even keep pace with the rapid changes in digital technologies. This excellent FrontLine program attempts to parse the way we live digitally -- from the commonplace social networking to the gaming sub-culture and the seldom discussed USAF's use of drones to kill -- and on the fly probe how it might be changing us.
