Upon meeting an individual, I tend to think about which decade they identify themselves. It gives me a point of inflection and creates a common dialogue. Here's Peter Hyman drawing a picture on the evaporation on the generational divide.
The lines are blurred, the edge has been dulled and the traditional time lines have been jumbled. We all now feed from the same cultural trough. And while the Baby Boomers are busy preparing their sloops for that sunset sail into retirement (provided their 401ks haven’t taken on too much water), the graying of Gen X has been postponed indefinitely.
Do we need to grow up or is that just a take from someone who lived through a visible divide?
