I've never actually known what that Generation X, Generation Y thing was all about, so I decided to look it up (and I needed an excuse to use the image below!).
Generation Y: (aka Millennial Generation, Generation Next, Net Generation) is the generation that follows Generation X (if you know your alphabet this might seem kind of, um, obvious!). Members were born from roughly the mid 1970s to the early 2000s. This generation is generally marked by increased use and familiarity with communication, media and digital technologies.
Generation X: those born in the 1960s and 70s, after the Western post-World War II baby boom. Um...
Can anyone tell me exactly what defined Generation X? Wikipedia's confusing me a little!
