Link for this post:Millennials: Tipping the Scales Toward Change on Future Blogger.
I have been hearing about the new Millennial Generation but did not know that much about it until I found this post on a weblog called FutureBlogger. Complete with two web videos, the post got me up and running on the Millennial Generation concept.
The post also got me interested in a new book, Millennial Makeover: YouTube, MySpace and the Future of American Politics by Mike Hais and Morley Winograd. I clipped an interview with them from the Future Blogger post and embedded it below along with a snip from the beginning of the post.
A new generation of Americans, born in 1980-2000, is making a grab for the reins of culture, business and politics. This Millennial Generation, dubbed a Civic generation by scholars who study generational patterns, is irreverent and highly pro-active, in contrast to the vocal Baby Boomer generation that was not given the tools to accomplish the widespread change they sought to effect.
