We were raised by boomers. More so than any other generation. We were on to them since the 90’s.

Also Gen X is the smallest generation, there are literally tens of millions more boomers(or were) and millennials
So as by the time we would take the reigns from the boomers who held on to everything til the crusty end, we were usurped by the younger generation

We are the only one who also have a foot in both worlds, having a childhood with little tech, but grew with it as it came out
Gen Z doesn’t even know half of anything needed to make life work

It’ll grind to a halt soon enough

I fall in the micro-generation category of "Xennial", between Generation X and Millennials. Xennials are described as having had an analog childhood and a digital young adulthood.

The best of both worlds. Xennials got cell phones later in life, had fax machines, used dial-up modems to do school research, made mix CD's for crushes that recorded songs from radio and, of course, played the Oregon Trail.

I got a Nokia at 15yrs old and it was exciting when a friend got a cell phone because no one had them. I have a vivid core memory of discovering what text messaging was, it cost 10cents per text message at the time. Pay phones was still the common use because calls were expensive on cell phones and service was terrible. I remember getting in trouble for cellphone bill costing $100 because of calls and text.

As Dan Woodman, a sociology professor of the University of Melbourne, puts it, the timing of this microgeneration's upbringing created "a particularly unique experience."

"You have a childhood, youth and adolescence free of having to worry about social media posts and mobile phones. It was a time when we had to organize to catch up with our friends on the weekends using the landline, and actually pick a time and a place and turn up there."


Here is a quiz to find out:
