So where does that lead us in the future? I think the generalities that exist and the assumptions we make about the generations, I don't know that that's going to go away in the next 10-15 years. How we get through this recession will be very telling in terms of what gets learned in the workforce. I 'm hoping that Baby Boomers will gain a new-found respect in the workplace.
Until now, there has been a host of other reasons why I would have preferred to set my hair (what's left of it, anyway) on fire rather than dare to share all this data that's been accumulating in my brain for more than 50 years. I've been holding on to this notion that blogging is the ultimate act of narcissism (Andy Warhol's fifteen minutes of fame on steroids). That may indeed be the case, but it's no longer sufficient reason to stand in the wings. At the very least, I figure I can charm and engage readers with some deftly placed self-deprecation to offset any narcissistic leanings I may exhibit.
