(To the author, if he ever sees this.)
Sir, with all do respect I see your concern... But! You're sadly just like all the other people from your generation. You judge the generation's after you
simply because it isn't like how you want it to be. My generation? The "digital" generation, does take advantage of the technology we have. My generation has higher volunteer rates, and we have created many things on the web, we've created all kinds of apps too. Just because we're different doesn't mean you have a right to put us down just like all the other generations do to their predecessors. < That video can also give you a little bit.
So my advice to you sir? How about stop, take a look around and really look, look hard. Do not stereotype everyone because of your little surveys. Those surveys aren't everyone.
Goodbye and I hope you have a lovely day.

i was born in 1986. i'm young but the funny thing is i'm reading a book about how people from my generation don't use the resources i have correctly. it clearly states that. and i'm reading his book on google books, because its fast and convenient. Every generation has problems, the problem with ours is mostly augmented reality. Many can't tell what is real and what isn't real. including me.
Although it is easy to dismiss this book as the rantings of an old liberal grandpa, i must agree with one of my friends that this generation will produce more miracles in technology that may keep you alive, old man. we know how to learn how to do anything by finding it on google. people older than us really don't know how to do that.
