She speaks much more succinctly about her concept of the “Goldilocks effect” and on the irony that, contrary to popular thinking, teenagers are expressing a “nostalgia” for face-to-face interaction with thier parents and peers. Are we making too many assumptions about the present generation, who never knew a world without computer-mediated-communication (CMC)?
