Define generations by the tech they use
April 21st, 2014

Recently, The Fine Bros published a video in their series titled Kids React where they presented members of Generation Z, in this case 6 to 14 year olds. The idea behind these videos isn’t new: children will always be blissfully unaware of the lives their parents or grandparents lived before them. In the Kids React video, one of the little girl stares at the walkman and cassette tape and says “Are these like in the movies?” Here is a girl who has obviously been shown 80s movies. No beautiful plot line or enduring tale can overcome a clunky piece of outdated technology. Within the Millennial generation, for example, we can see this happening with SMS text messaging. The first text message was sent in 1992, but commercial growth was slow. Millennials at the top of the generation may not have had text messaging until late in high school. For Millennials in the middle, text messaging was the primary form of communication.
