Graham Plaster: Veterans, Millennials and the Uber Economy

According to most, I would be considered part of Gen X, or Gen Y (if there really is such a thing as Gen Y).  According to others, I am on the cusp of being a millenial since I was born just 6 months before the start of the generation. This recent article talks about the ambiguous space between Gen X and millenials and raises some interesting points about how those born in the late 70’s and early 80’s saw a technology transformation that really shaped us in a unique way.  It doesn’t mention that we also experienced 9-11 in our college or early working lives – which is a significant fact. 

The book I helped to write a few years ago touched on some of these themes in the introduction, but I think the ideas are coming into focus more, so I will share just a few thoughts here.  For the purpose of this post, let’s just say that I identify with millennials a lot more than with Gen X.

I’ll admit not being happy being a ’64, the last Baby Boomer year. Unless the Gen’s figure it out, the country store will be mighty picked over.
