I am so done with all of the old ideas of the last eight years which, by the way, have lead to the multiple disasters we are now facing on so many fronts.
You know, little things like our continually shrinking global economy and the over heating atmosphere, just to name a few.
That’s why I’m absolutely giddy over the rise of the net geners. Not only do these digital natives befuddle the boomers still in power, but this new generation also shares my impatience for rapid innovation and change.
The Economist has a great article on The Net Generation. This is where the engine of change will get its juice.
Mr Tapscott identifies eight norms that define Net Geners, which he believes everyone should take on board to avoid being swept away by the sort of generational tsunami that helped Barack Obama beat John McCain. Net Geners value freedom and choice in everything they do. They love to customise and personalise. They scrutinise everything. They demand integrity and openness, including when deciding what to buy and where to work. They want entertainment and play in their work and education, as well as their social life. They love to collaborate. They expect everything to happen fast. And they expect constant innovation.
