Sean pointed me at this post by Dave Morin. People who walk away from plum jobs because we won’t let them work the way we taught them to. People who expect to be able to IM and use internet mail at work. People who will expect to bring their own laptops to work, it is part of what defines them.
I was still getting over it, realising for myself that this Generation I’m busy preparing for is already here. Now.
And when I got home, I had a chat with Isaac, my 14 year old son, the upshot of which was that he’s going to upgrade digital cameras and I’m going to get his old one.
Yes, the Hand-Me-Up Generation is here. Now. And I am part of that Generation.
Generation M will hand things up to us, not wait for us to hand things down to them.
