Over a single generation, the Web and digital media have remade nearly every aspect of modern culture, transforming the way we work, learn, and interact in ways that we are only beginning to understand. FRONTLINE producer Rachel Dretzin (GROWING UP ONLINE) teams up with one of the leading thinkers of the digital age, Douglas Rushkoff (THE PERSUADERS, MERCHANTS OF COOL), to continue to explore life on the virtual frontier. The film will be the product of a unique collaboration with visitors to the Digital Nation Web site, who will be able to react to the work in progress, post their own stories, and help shape the final film. Dretzin and her team will also continue to report on the frontiers of digital culture: from the thoroughly wired classrooms of the future to the training grounds for the military's new "digital warriors". Along the way, they begin to map the critical ways that technology is transforming us, and what we may be losing in the process.
