Joey Alarilla: Surviving the Zeroes

Being a father to a one year and four-month old daughter, I surely can relate to this essay!

From INQ7.net: Joey Alarilla, an INQ7.net contributing editor, won third prize for Essay (English Division) in the 2004 Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature. "Surviving the Zeroes" is dedicated to his wife Ellen and daughter Sam, without whom this essay, his first Palanca award and daily existence itself would not be possible.

An excerpt from Surviving the Zeroes:

Welcome to the Zeroes and the future that our children are building today. More than any other generation that came before it, the children born during the Zeroes (also known as the 00s, Zero Years or, my personal favorite, the Oh-Ohs) will be called upon to build a new world and create the rules for surviving in it. They are the first generation whose formative years will be shaped by pervasive technology, whether in our homes or in our offices (which, in my case, are one and the same). They are the true children of the digital age -- not we who may have embraced the information technology revolution but whose roots are firmly embedded in the analog world.

Joey narrates, in his blog, how he discovered he had won the Palanca.
