In the mid-1990s, I began studying the behaviours of kids when I noticed how my 10-year-old daughter was effortlessly able to use sophisticated technologies. At first, I thought, “She’s a prodigy!!!” but then I noticed all her friends were like that too, so I decided that was a bad theory.
I began to theorize instead that this was the first time in history when children were an authority on something really important. (I was an authority on model trains when I was a kid.) Today, the 11-year-old at the table is an authority on revolution changing business and society.
