I’m endlessly fascinated by watching children play with technology. It all started when I saw a 4-year-old child swipe her hand across a television screen in frustration. What makes revolutionary touch and swipe technology so biologically natural?
Good grief. If “revolutionary touch and swipe technology” were “biologically natural,” children would have been swiping at TV screens for the past sixty years, and at magazines for more than a century. Yet somehow we failed to notice this behavior. Could it be that children who are swiping at screens and pages have been taught to do so by iPad-wielding parents? How absurd.
