“High school’s full of phonies, and all you do is study so that you can learn enough to be smart enough to be able to buy agoddam Cadillac some day, and you have to keep making believe you give adamn if the football team loses.” –D.Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye.

Teenagers push the boundaries of accepted behavior in every era. They thrive despite raging hormones, clueless parents,ridiculous authority figures, and the dawning recognition that the entire status quo is absurd. They will define the future ofnew media.
