Michael McGuire

Each generation is different from the one that precedes it. Sometimes these differences are stark -- the era of Eisenhower leading into the Woodstock years, for instance -- and sometimes they are much more subtle.

Abby Miller

Why are we always trying to cater to Millennials? In media, marketing, human resources, education, all you hear about is "how do we please Millennials?" In terms of selling to Millennials, I get it - go ahead, test out a product with them all you'd like, make it colorful, whimsical, add some bacon - whatever appeals to them so you can make money.

RJ Martin

Now, I am not too much of a sci-fi geek. I don't speak Klingon, never watched Battlestar Galactica in any of its iterations, and by the third Alien movie I started rooting for the slobbery beast with too sets of teeth: anything to get Sigourney Weaver to stop scowling. Star Wars is different.
