Answer : These days even 5 year olds have a facebook profile. As all age groups are regular internet users the internet becomes a critical part of everyones life. If people don't know how to work online safely then they can be victim of cyber crime any time.
One of the objectives of THN is to bring the reality of security and it's consequences to internet users. The generation you refer to in your question is coming along, but they need more education and awareness of the power and the threat of the internet.

Time for all generations, especially the generation of the 1960's that understood government needed an overhaul, to support and utilize the internet to accomplish this.
I believe this current generation can do what others could not. Without firing one shot, gathering in one public square, carrying one protest sign, we can via our computers bring down the out of control unethical behavior of government and corporations.
