I've been having conversations about the Me Generation. Over the past year, it's become pretty obvious to me that there's this entire generation that has a totally different outlook about technology. I, of course, want to understand this, the motivations, the attitude. Because every generation is a reiteration from the previous one. It's growth. But in what direction, and is it the growth that that trunk wants to go in, or the branches? I have no answer, but lots of questions.
Anyway, while checking out my stats, I found a link to Amy LeBlanc's blog, where she posted this great poster.
I've been seeing Marilyn pop up on Melrose for a while,but she's wearing sunglasses (typical Hollywood). But I like the sentiment in the poster. It's depressing - angsty you might say - and a reality check, against a reality that is increasingly changing. I don't necessarily disagree with the poster, but I don't actually agree with it either. It's perspective.
Why would you want to be a rock star? Is that really what you want to be? Or do you have some other passion that is aching to be expressed. That needs no adulation or showing of applause?
