Millennials

So, I learned a new word today. Millennials. I guess that's the generation after Y? These kids like instant feedback, technology, they're greenish, they like to feel they're making a difference, but they need money, and lots.

The millennial workforce is the next big IT security threat.

LOL!

And WE didn't like instant feedback? (Mom! Mom! Look at what I can do!!! Mommmm!)

Technology? (Electric toothbrushes - riding lawn-mowers...)

Greenish? (Boy Scouts - Girl Scouts...)

Making a difference? (See "greenish above")

Needing money, and lots of it? (I didn't know I was allowed to not need money...what's changed there?)

The only way to get lots of money is to consume, consume, consume and if your green that's an oxymoron, unless they mean green like money...

My son once said to me, "Dad, I'm not materialistic like you . . . " I told him to just wait until he has a mortgage and a bunch of kids to support, and tell me he's not materialistic.
