Though I’m quoted several times in this article, I don’t really agree much with its conclusions. As you may know, I tend to downplay the central and causal role attributed to technology by so many generational “theorists.” More to the point, I pay a lot more attention to the way generations shape technology rather than the other way around. But apparently that idea is a hard sell. Listen especially to what many of these people say about the *length* of a generation. Since they have no definition of what a generation is, nor any theory about how generations are formed, their observations here seem like stabs in the dark.
