In my new book (Geeks, Geezers, and Googlization – September 2009 release), I devoted a chapter to Gen X Hits Gray Ceiling. (I previously wrote an article under the same title too.) In the chapter I wrote about the frustration many Gen X are experiencing with the prolonged careers of the Baby Boomers.
In this week’s Boston Globe Sunday Magazine, the plight of Gen X is highlighted. The author cleverly describes Baby Boomers as “ageless Botoxed Parrotheads,” “Boomers Without End,” and describes a “Nation of Geezers.” She also describes Gen X as the “Prince Charles” generation – a description I also used.
For a post worth reading, I’d recommend The immortalists – The Boston Globe.
