Yesterday I attended a presentation by a statistician and college professor on the characteristics of the "millennial generation" (which included current teens and college students). One of them was they are are "intellectually disengaged." What I asked the speaker to expand on this, he said, "Short attention span. Want their information in very small bites and in 'interesting' packaging. Would rather know a little about a lot of things than a lot about anything in particular." When I observed that this is a frightening portent for the future of our society, the speak (a GenXer) nodded in agreement.
