A Snowmobile is a vehicle used to travel on snow. It is a vehicle which is generally used in winters and is also known as sled. These snowmobiles are very versatile and can be operated in areas where there is deep snow, or in forests, open terrain, on frozen lakes and also can be used to drive on paths or trails. This can be possible due to the number of designs they come in.

Does the Generation Gap Exist, and is Technology a Red Herring?

Does the Generation Gap Exist, and is Technology a Red Herring?

After an excellent debut event last year, TedX Brighton is back under a new steering committee and with a theme of ‘the generation gap’. Already, a fair bit of discussion has been going on about what this means, the demands of ‘generation now’ and the cult of instant gratification, especially in relation to technology.

This is a perennial topic and personally I’m not convinced it’s all that helpful to think in terms of ‘generations’, popular though these labels are. Admittedly, I’ve talked about changing attitudes, working styles and expectations in relation to ‘Millennials’ versus ‘Generation Y’ here on this blog, so maybe I’m as guilty as anyone of perpetuating a model that has outlived its usefulness. But my concern is that we don’t seem to have got beyond the labels and the associated stereotypes, especially when it comes to attitudes to technology. Plus, since we are all on a continuum, the drawing of lines seems arbitrary.


For example, let’s have a discussion about how ‘time in post’ (as one commenter called it) relates to experience, and how experience relates to wisdom. Wisdom is a word we hear little of in the workplace, or even in society in general. Perhaps it embodies something grey, slow-moving, unable to adapt to new ideas, living in the past. Or just a character in a JK Rowling book. But isn’t wisdom simply the ability to remember and learn from the past, and apply that knowledge as and when relevant? Isn’t wisdom also the essential complement to the confidence, optimism and risk-taking that tends (rightly or wrongly) to be associated with being young?

In my mind, to talk about a ‘generation gap’ with reference to technology is a red herring. There are technophobes and technophiles in every generation, and always have been. I’ve come across 80+ year-olds who have embraced computers and mobile devices with the enthusiasm and naturalness of a baby. I’ve also known plenty of teenagers/twenty-somethings who couldn’t use a search engine to save their lives, or who engage with technology reluctantly and purely as a means to an end. For older people there can be physical barriers to using new technology, of course, and if you’re in normal health and under 40 it’s very hard to imagine what this feels like. (Trust me, no-one can prepare you for the shock of your reading vision deteriorating, even though it happens to everyone.)


Confidence doesn’t automatically increase with age, but wisdom tends to. Society needs both confident, optimistic risk-takers as well as wise people with long memories: and we need to value and appreciate what both sides bring to the party.
