Generation Gap

I don’t have time to blog these more fully, but I found these two posts/articles interesting. The first is from Inside Higher Ed reporting on a discussion about dealing with the generation gap in offices. Since I spent about 1/2 hour yesterday discussing the pros and cons of various tattoo and piercing locations with my students yesterday, I found it particularly ironic.

The second is an extended commentary on a Brooks column I haven’t read about “The Age of Independence,” an age I totally skipped, I guess. Though I didn’t have my first kid until 27, so if you count college, I got in nearly a decade. Since I was completely broke, it didn’t feel much like independence, but whatever.
