Is the information revolution polarising western society?
The definitions and ideas appliedto information and communication technologies and the modern media culture are examined in the beginning of this chapter. The characterizations of media culture are then explored from the perspective of young people, and the links between youth and ICT are investigated. The dominant cultural logic with regard to ICT is outlined, and different forms of the digital divide are presented. Some global aspects of ICT use among youth are reviewed, using both primary and secondary sources. New forms of youth socialization brought about by the emergence of ICT are examined, and the chapter concludes with a set of recommendations.

What is your source of Inspiration ?
Yeah ... the same is the condition with the Media of India ! What Inspires me is not any particular thing which I can show or tell ! Inspiration is what I feel can be taken from anywhere ... may it be Nature or Technology ! If we go at the basics ... we can even be inspired from other living creatures which we often ignore !
