(CBS) Has civilization so turned for the worse, that people no longer know how to converse?

Is getting together for civilized talk a prospect at which today modern folks balk?

The generation of young people who were born into the digital era may

be more connected to each other, but less connected to their cultural

heritage, warns sociologist Jos de Haan of Erasmus University

Rotterdam. They are "chatting" more but reading less; playing more, but

researching and learning less than preceding generations.


Though adept at finding their way around the virtual world, digital-era

youth are not finding their way to institutions that connect them with

the cultural riches of their past, according to de Haan.


The Internet is perceived as a rival to traditional culture, but it

could become an ally: De Haan challenges museums, libraries, archives,

and other institutions to do more to connect with the digital

generation than merely digitize their collections.

These simple bits of wisdom come from contributors to the online Legacy

Letter Project, the brainchild of University of Iowa leisure studies

lecturer David Gould.


The project began when Gould invited senior citizens in the community

to share their life lessons with his students; as the project grew,

Gould began receiving letters from as far away as Venezuela, connecting

not only generations, but cultures as well.


"From the students' perspective, there's an unsaid need to want to know

what's down the road," says Gould. "And the authors are thrilled to be

asked. You live 70, 80 years and endure a host of high points and low

points to arrive where you are."


The site also includes information on how to submit your own legacy letter.
