Thomas Friedman: The Internet Is Too Quiet!

You know what? I'm just not done with today's insanely irritating Thomas Friedman op-ed in the Times. (Ugh, TimesSelect, come back! Untear down this paywall!) Friedman's beef with the do-gooding college children of our age is that they're just all Facebookey. "But Generation Q may be too quiet, too online, for its own good, and for the country's own good." Really? Online equals... quiet? Dude. "Generation Quiet" is one bad little coinage that is so not going to stick around—not in a world where the youngs are so loudly overdisclosing on Facebook walls and opinionating on the blogs. I thought the olds hated the internet exactly because it was so loud?
