"My two-year-old is teaching my one-year-old to use the iPad," a Christian writer tweeted recently. As these two young 'digital natives' grow up, they will barely distinguish between online and offline, face-to-face or virtual. They will be unaware of that strange world just 20 years ago, which was almost untouched by digital media.
