The Smartest Generation

Common belief by older generations is that the current generation and generations to come are stupid, ignorant and lazy. I think there is a trend in effect right now that as it matures will nuture one of smartest generations in history.
Over the past 50 years people's main information source was the TV, before that it was radio, newspapers, books, spoken word. What all these share in common is that one source influenced the masses.
Along comes the internet. A source where the masses influence the masses. Unlike the previous mediums, this source interacts with it users. Maybe its true the average persons attention span has shrunk, but is that a bad thing? Whats the point spending hours searching through papers & books when you can get the same information in seconds via the information superhighway. One can interact with others, and when in doubt no longer has to stayed glued to the tube waiting to be spoon fed information. Its also the information arbitrator between the able and the not so able. Anyone with a link to the internet is on much nearer level playing field with someone with more extensive reasources more today then ever. I havent't quantified how much more productive the internet makes someone, but if I had to guess based on my own experiance I would say at least 3 fold.
To give an example of how disruptive the internet is, I continue to refer to google. They continue take ad revenue while the old men of the by gone days stand and scratch their heads, wondering how it makes that money. Its simple; google lets advertisers see the return on their ad dollars they are getting, while TV, radio and print doesn't. Advertising used to be alot of guesswork + trial and error, Google & overture (now owned by yahoo) turned it into a science.

Interesting. I’m glad that I stopped by. I am in the process of searching for ideas about debt consolidation to add to my site. This stop wasn’t what I was looking for, but still worth the time to see.

Hi Barry, I find it quite refreshing to occasionally find a article like yours with an familair topic such as The Smartest Generation. Its not was I was searching for but somehow ads to ones list of lifes experiences.

I have a soft spot for sites and blogs related to google money and /or sites that have a central theme around google money type items.

Once again, thank you Barry, look forward see more posts from you in the future :-)

Hello there Barry, I find reading blog articles like The Smartest Generation most rewarding. It enhances the experiences of life in many cases.

Being a webmaster I tend to sometimes have a soft spot for blogs related to google resources and /or sites that are built around google resources type items.

Once again, thank you Barry, and I will look for your posts again in the future. :-)

Aloha Barry, I'm in Hawaiian mood as I'm listening to Ki ho'alu music (If you've not heard this type of guitar music then you are in for a treat!) so I'm not really concentrating very hard but I came across ##TITlE## looking up gen on currency trading tutorial. Anything to do with currency trading tutorial I always look at, though I do have a tendency to wander about in blogs just reading generally.

Hi Barry, this is my last visit on the 'net for now - I'm tired. I found The Smartest Generation by accident as I'm searching on currency trading recommendation but I got fed up with that and I've been roaming about just reading what takes my fancy. Good blog you have here, I enjoyed my visit. Have a great day and it's back to currency trading recommendation searches for me tomorrow.

I found myself spending a good amount of time looking around your great site. Thank you and keep up the splended work!

Hello Barry, I've just been playing Serious Sam 2 before getting down to do some research into currency trading tutorial; on the whole I'd rather continue playing. First place I came to was The Smartest Generation so I've been having a goog time reading your blog.

I have been following a site now for almost 2 years and I have found it to be both reliable and profitable. They post daily and their stock trades have been beating
the indexes easily.

Take a look at Wallstreetwinnersonline.com
