Staying up-to-date

I was going through my RSS feeds this morning and one of them is for CNN news. They just released results of a poll that says that “Teens use IM’s to avoid OMG moments.” I’m sitting here thinking about this and I’m like WTF?!? Doesn’t everyone already know this? I mean, this is not something new to probably 70%+ of the population (I just made up that number, I don’t have any idea actually what percentage it would be).

It reminded me of how at the conference I just got back from, people asked some of us more “techie” people what websites we use to get our information from. It struck me odd at first because I was thinking, google, blogs, facebook, rss feeds, etc, all the sites that I’ve grown up with and are natural to me. After reading this, I’m thinking this is why people are so behind. They rely on “reputable” sites like CNN for their up-to-date information because they don’t really know any better. I don’t mean to sound mean or like I’m talking anyone down or anything, I just think it’s interesting that CNN is publishing something NOW that many people have known for a long time.
