It is the technological interactions in our adolescence and college

years that guide our generational frames more than anything else, not the day we were born.We are generations of technology. We are GenTech.

Book Description:

Every twenty years a new generation rises, but who and what defines

these generations? And could current generational tags mislead and miss

the point? In this insightful analysis of technology history since 1900,

Dr. Rick Chromey offers a fresh perspective for understanding what

makes a generation tick and differ from others. Within GenTech,

readers learn how every generation uniquely interacts with particular

technologies that define historical temperament and personality and why

current generational labels are more fluid than fixed, and more loopy

than linear. Consequently, three major generational constellations

emerge, each containing four, twenty-year generations that overlap,

merge, and blend:

 

  • The Audio Generations (1900-1950):Transportation-Telephone Generation (1900-1920), Motion PictureGeneration (1910-1930), Radio Generation (1920-1940), Vinyl RecordGeneration (1930-1950)
  • The Visual Generations (1940-1990): TelevisionGeneration (1940-1960), Space Generation (1950-1970), Gamer Generation(1960-1980) and Cable Television Generation (1970-1990)
  • The Digital Generations (1980-2000): PersonalComputer-Cell Phone Generation (1980-2000), Net Generation (1990-2010),iTech Generation (2000-2020), and Robotics Generation (2010-2030). Divein and revel in this exciting, compelling, and novel perspective to

    understanding recent American generations with GenTech.
