Anyone else think being called Generation Y sucks? I'm definitely not Gen X, and not young enough for Millenial, so I guess I'm stuck in this generation with a crap name. Fortunately, one guy has a great suggestion, Generation Trail.
The criteria I'd set would be born 76-86, like Yglesias says, plus played Oregon Trail in elementary school. In addition, I'd say we're unique in that we're the generation to go through school with computers being around the whole time, but no Internet. I never used the Internet until a senior in high school, when I'd use my dad's email to write friends who'd graduated and gone off to college.
