Shakespeare used the word "punk" in 1623

*he referred to a prostitute.
Much later, the word became a symbol of the generation gap phenomenon.
A generation gap is what happens when people of one generation can’t keep up with social evolution. Simply put, you grow older while the society “becomes” younger. Then you don’t “understand” younger generations. (punks...)

For the first time in history this is about to change. We have now reached a point where technology has become an organic part of our life. Simply put, technology is finally less technical. My 65 year old dad is using skype. My 5 year old daughter is using RFID tags (Nabaztag) to start computer applications. And I can’t even start thinking about what gaming is going to be like when I retire. Not a virtual reality, augmented reality or other reality that needs to be defined or separated from our life. Just reality. But better.

Which means that it’s going to be equally easy for me, my daughter and her kids to consume + understand the same content. We will be able to participate in culture as equals. And maybe, we will understand eachother better because of that.
