‘It’s Complicated,’ by Danah Boyd [NYTimes.com]
Since the word “teenager” was coined 70 years ago, adults have defined adolescents by one extreme or another. They are rebels without causes or activist leaders, mindless consumers or cultural kingpins, digital natives or naïfs. Enter Danah Boyd, a principal researcher at Microsoft Research and a research assistant professor at New York University. In life, Boyd retains the spirit of a youthful rebel, with her pierced tongue and name spelled in anti-Establishment lowercase. And perhaps in part thanks to its author’s identification with youth, “It’s Complicated” avoids many of the typical either-or clichés about adolescence. Boyd’s new book is layered and smart.
