Abby Miller | Posted 04.26.2016 | Business
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.

Will We Still Target Millennials When They Are 75 or Will We Instead Focus on the Next Generation of Freshly Minted Grown-ups?

An Explanation of the Millennial Hatred

Andrew Lee | Posted 02.25.2016 | Business

Why is there so much hate for Millennials? I submit that the hatred comes from a recognizable place. This is a place we have all visited, for various purposes, at least once in our lifetime. In this place, the streets, houses and cars are painted green.

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.
