"Sorry, Boys, This Is Our Domain" is the headline on today's New York Times piece smashing yet another set of assumptions about who really does what on the Internet. "Research shows that among the youngest Internet users, the primary creators of Web content (blogs, graphics, photographs, Web sites) are not misfits resembling the Lone Gunmen of 'The X Files.' On the contrary, the cyberpioneers of the moment are digitally effusive teenage girls."
I can attest to that. Not only do my girls have their own websites (Middle Daughter has posted more than 15,000 photos) but they hacked around the Myspace block that I had put on my network.
If you're in the media biz, don't take this lightly. Teen girls have embraced the Internet and they're not letting go. Project that forward ten years and think about it.
