Member of the advantaged generation

Posted: June 9, 2012 in World

I keep reading about how teens and early twenty-somethings are clueless about how things were done just a few years ago before everybody had smart phones. The fact that they have such vast resources available in the palm of their hand seems to actually be making them a lot dumber and unable to do even the simplest things themselves. This comic made the point pretty well I think.

(Oops. Looks like they moved or deleted it)

I feel like I am part of the advantaged generation, having knowledge of actually how to do things and greatly appreciating the resources now available to anyone with a wireless or internet connection.
