Canada's Calgary Herald has an interesting article on how rapidly accelerating technological change is driving new, smaller gaps within generations. For example, a generation gap can exist in the half-dozen years between someone who remembers getting their first e-mail address as a teenager and someone else who has never known life without one, the article notes. As a result, it's possible that we'll begin to redefine the appropriate spans of time for current and future generations.
