Digital Native Map Changing with technology.
A Generation on Fast Forward
Meet Wen-Jay, 24, and her dog, Wuji. They live in Brooklyn, New York and are part of a generation called Digital Natives, or NetGeners.

This linking, in creating a buy-and-sell environment – whether in a physical, or virtual (cyber) way – has always been about reducing friction to facilitate greater commerce. Once a market is established, its value, whether recognized or not, becomes ingrained in both the minds and the actions of those who engage the marketplace.
