how do you know if you are genx/y and wtf is a generation

Post by nathannn » Tue Nov 25, 2008 9:52 pm

occording to various web sources you are gen x if you remember the berlin wall coming down, vividly remember nirvana getting huge, drink starbucks, and bought cd's
so i can check yes to all of them..

you are gen y if you use cell phones, remember nirvana, drink starbucks, computers have always been around, and download music..
i can check yes to all of them also except with computers i vividly remember there being no internet.

and as for age.. alot of web sites claim gen x birth years being from 1960-1982
and alot of sites say y is 1977 -94

i was born 5 days before 1980...

things i remember about growing up,
my buddy,
the smurfs
atari
ninendo
super nintendo
commodore 64
sega genesis
poison
warrant
mc hammer
vanilla ice
nirvana
smashing pumpkins
home alone 1 and 2
showbiz pizza turning into chucky cheese
tmnt 1 and 2
gameboy
gamegear

as for cell phones and mp3 players
i was around the age of 19 -20 when they became big (1999-2000)
and that was around the same time i first downloaded a song..

what generation would this make me part of?
x seems to old and y seems to young.

I thought Gen X birth dates ended around the late 70s.
Ableton’s engineers are hard
at work developing code that will allow our software to predict the future, but we don’t
anticipate having this available until at least the next major release.

You are obviously on the cusp of X and Y. Make a choice or don't and live with it. Or you can live outside of those gay as labels and get down to making some funky jams!
