That’s the question posed by this Washington Post article, after a nine-year-old hacked into his school’s computer system. I am a senior software engineer, and I’m not sure I would know how to hack into a computer system. I am certain that at the age of nine, I didn’t even know what hacking into a computer system meant. But the world is changing. My kids have a hard time understanding why we can’t fast-forward through commercials when we’re watching live TV. They use my iPhone to get on the Internet while we are on road trips. They are immersed in technology. While older people are frightened of new technology, kids embrace it. It makes me feel old (well, that and being old). But the best news from the story, since the kid didn’t do any real damage, the police aren’t going to press charges.
