Typical 20-year-olds in post-World War II America grew up with radio as an
established medium, witnessed the growing ubiquity of television,
communicated with friends by rotary phone, and used libraries as their
primary information retrieval systems.

Typical 20-year-olds in modern America grew up with television as a
long-established medium, witnessed the growing ubiquity of the Internet,
communicate with friends through a variety of telecommunications
technologies, and use a variety of information retrieval systems whose
origins go back the post-World War II era.

Along with social and historical contexts, technology affects the workplace
and recreational expectations of different generations. Join us as Jason
Neal explores how these factors have influenced the attitudes (and our
perceptions) of four generations: Silents, Boomers, Xers, and Millennials.
