Is Generation X changing the world?

Today, Sara Vollmer, who is participating in a four-day seminar in Cleveland that I am teaching, shared this video of author Jeff Gordinier (Generation X Saves The World) with me. I was enthralled. What do you think? Is he correct?

Jeff is right on, not only in this vid but in his book, X Saves the World.

Of course, as he suggests, GenX will probably always have to exist on the margins, the spotlight being self-entitledly hogged by the Boomers first and now the Mellinnials, who are even bigger than the Boomers. But so what, we're used to it.

For more about and from Jeff, including an iPod cast in which Jeff argues with a Boomer about who has better music, GenX or the BBs,you can visit my blog.

Oh, brother...it seems as though Gen X now talks more about itself than anyone else.
