Is the Internet the end of cool?

June 17th, 2007

Or at least the end of the Generation Gap?

It used to be easy for young people to do things that befuddled their elders.

From songs to slang, cialis buy medical teens and young adults have always delighted in speaking in a code that only they could understand.

But what happens now that anyone can decipher the code with a quick trip to Google?

When a 50-year-old can Facebook like a 15-year-old, see when every fad has an RSS feed, when every obscure band can be seen playing on You-tube, what’s a self-respecting rebel-without-a-clue to do?

I think the Gap is gone or at least definitely shrinking. If you’ve ever played an online game or visited a chat room, you’ve probably already noticed that it’s already nearly impossible to tell the high school seniors from the senior citizens. And that’s just dandy with me dadio. Or should I just say, “tight?”

    I haven’t done much with chat, and when I have it was either with the BBS OP 15 years ago, or at a forum where I posted anyway. From what I’ve heard, the real issue is that you can’t trll the highschool kids from the FBI agents.

    OK, now you make me feel dirty. I didn’t mean it THAT way. ;)
