Put this one under “Kids these days don’t know how good they have it.” There are so many times we wonder what life would have been like if we’d had today’s Internet in our childhood. Instead of a rather large (but finite) collection of books, we’d have almost the entirety of humanity’s knowledge at our fingertips.

There’s an interesting balance to be found. On the one hand, the online world promises so much capability…but on the other, it can easily turn us into couch potatoes. Ultimately, it becomes a matter of creating content, rather than passively absorbing it.

Which brings us to 18 year-old Adam Quinlan, the young man who created this video. At the end of the video, Adam acknowledges his technological immersion by including a conversation with a 75 year-old man who encourages him to take advantage of what he has.

All in all, an impressive effort.
