The time of persons who only have a mobile device has already arrived. There are loads of kids who have an iPhone but no computer. Just the other week a career counsilor told me that they have to move back from online tests to paper&pencil because, kids don't have computers anymore, they only have phones. I told her to make mobile apps instead of moving back to P&P.

Nice article, like always... you got one thing wrong or at least very biased. "The difference between a child who freaks out at the slightest breeze, and a child who can confidently navigate an unfamiliar world? The parents." That's just the nurture part, but we know that there is the nature/nurture duality/interaction. Much of who we are is already determined before we're even born, including the seeds for coping strategies, etc.

Jeff, you're using the term anti-social wrongly. What you mean by anti-social is called asocial. Anti-socials are by definition people with an anti-social personality disorder. Folks like Nazis, notoric criminals, etc. From Wikipedia: In common English vernacular; anti-social is often used to describe those perceived to be excessively introverted, an incorrect though increasingly common usage. The correct term for an introverted person who is "not social" would be asocial; asocial means "avoidance of society" while antisocial means "hostile toward society".
Can it be that a guy like you hasn't heard of flu.x?
