Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants & Resident Aliens

By Shane Joseph, published on Dec 20, 2013

...incomes remain steady and recession-proof. The Internet is a mystery, another pesky thing that they need to stay away from for there is all that reputed scamming and pornography out there (unless one is into that kinda thing, heh, heh!).

Then there are those in the middle, the digital immigrants, who were born before the Internet but who matured during the period when cyberspace went from a mild pastime to a robust highway along which most information began to flow. Some of these people gave up desk jobs of pushing paper and started pushing buttons on their desktops instead. Some... (more)

Today in the United States, there are at least thirty "Hole in the Wall" cities that offer special protection for another brand of outlaw, "Illegal immigrants."
