In or Of the Digital World: Some Implications of the Generational Difference

For Millennials and their younger siblings, the Web is not a tool to accomplish other things; it is a mode of existence that has distinctive characteristics, including decentralized authority, breadth and interconnectivity rather than depth of relationship; active rather than passive consumption; and a blending of virtual and live communities through continuous connectivity. The difference in orientation between younger and older Internet users may indicate why an experiment by Omaha-based Countryside Community Church, intended to spark a new Christian Reformation by providing digital resources, has attracted fairly few followers, and why those are primarily between 40 and 60 year of age. In an essay and case study report prepared for the New Media Project at Christian Theological Seminary, an online project to help religious leaders become theologically savvy about technology, Kathryn Reklis explored the animating vision of Countryside’s Darkwood Brew experiment, the competing visions for the program offered by its support staff, and the impact the virtual community is having (and not having) in the digital world
