from KMM - "Yesterday Brian presented the "DARC" acronym in the context of what he looks for in selecting members of an internet marketing team. The "D" stood for "Digital Native". The definition of a Digital Native was given as a person whose first word was "Google", not "goo-goo". How can this criterion not be seen as age discrimination?

Kate Hutchinson: "A real "Digital Native" I would say, is someone who is actively learning everything possible about the digital world and using it on a daily basis."
