不知从什么时候开始,我们的生活中到处都充斥着各种各样的屏幕,电脑屏幕、电视机屏幕、游戏机屏幕、还有手机屏幕,似乎离开了这些屏幕我们的生活就无法正常进行。于是,就有了这么一类人——screenager

Screenagers are techno-savvy young people, reared on television and computers. The term was coined in 1997 by Douglas Rushkoff in his book Playing the Future. He argues that young people who have used computers and other microchipped devices since infancy will have effortless advantages over their elders in processing information and coping with change when they reach adulthood.

屏幕少年指的是那些经常坐在电视机和电脑前,对各类技术信息领悟能力较强的年轻人。这个说法最初见于道格拉斯•洛西科夫所著名为《游戏未来》的一本书。他指出,从小接触和使用电脑以及其他微芯片装置设备的年轻人成年后在处理信息以及应对变化方面会比他们的上一辈展现明显优势。

It’s as if they come into this world with a game controller in one hand and a mouse in the other. They’re referred to as generation wired, cyber tots, digital kids and screenagers.

他们好像是一手拿着游戏机控制板,一手拿着鼠标来到这个世界的。他们被称为有线的一代、网络儿童、数码儿童、以及屏幕少年。
