"The problem with transferring historical and sociological ways of thinking about generational change into the public sphere is that ‘unclassifiability’ is both terrifying and boring."

A thoughtful critique of generational thinking.

Generational thinking is seductive and confirms preconceived prejudices, but it’s a bogus way to understand the world

I believe that the reality is that humans view the world and other differently as they age. Because, as adults we have already experienced our youth we have formed opinions about what it is to be young. These opinions may or may not be accurate for ourselves, but they are often of little use in explaining how current young people are experiencing their lives.

Also, from my perspective, most views of younger generations seem to be projections of the author generation. They typically bear no particular truth when compared to actual individuals being described. Well, no more truth than the few outliers that are often used to prove a generality that does not reflect accurately upon the larger population being described.

I do find it interesting that the critiques of generational thinking have been X'ers. I have been offended over and over again by such typologies written by boomers and those from the "Greatest Generation" before them. I personally find it presumptive that any generation should be labeled as greater than any other. As a wise being once said, "wars not make one great".

How does our attention define us & our human experience? Very interesting talk and discussion. For me, it touched upon the importance of attentional focus as a critical digital literacy skill, the encroachment of the market into public & private spaces (have we become a market society, and, if so, is that such a good thing?), as well as musings about how the speaker's perspective relates to the notion of digital dualism. Good stuff. :)

Here are a couple of helpful public service announcements from the IRS about active tax scams to beware of. The video provides an overview, and the article provides a more detailed outline of the various scam approaches.

Another refreshing and thoughtful segment from +CrashCourse. It looks back at an episode of capitalism in history and asks some very timely questions about what we value. Good stuff! :)

A bit of perspective to consider that I'm tempted to file under "Practical Advice". :) 
One thing becomes apparent after the honeymoon of a newly-launched career is over: Your employer--whether it’s a scrappy startup or a massive multi-million dollar company--is not your friend. You are a resource. That means the only one you can trust, really, is you. Here's how to keep a cool head and stay in control of your career.

Another valuable bit of reading for Financial Literacy Month 2015. Understanding how we go about making the choices that we do is a fundamentally important part of financial literacy.

Considering the experience of moods and depression from the perspective of evolutionary psychology and affective science. Good read that raises some thought worthy, big picture things to ponder.

If you're in the mood for something like that. :)

"Social status isn't just about the cars we drive, the money we make or the schools we attend — it's also about how we feel, think and act..."

Really interesting American Psychological Association (APA) feature reviews the research studying the psychology of class.

"Social class differences come about because of the ideas and values you are surrounded by, the types of social interactions you have at home, school and work, and the sorts of institutional practices and policies that are common in your community," she says. "That means that these differences are not immutable."

For all the smart tech, we still feel pressed for time. Are digital services the problem, or are we humans to blame?
