Teenage Mindset

Teen TextThe mindset list from Beloit College shows how different the world is for my current students than it is for me. It shows what the world has always been like for them. In a similar vein here is a short list of things, in no particular order, that were invented during my lifetime – things I recall NOT existing:

  • microprocessors
  • portable calculators
  • personal computers
  • daisy wheel, ink jet, and laser printers
  • e-mail
  • the internet
  • cell phones
  • text messaging
  • CD, DVD, HD-DVD, and Blu-Ray discs
  • MP3s
  • digital cameras
  • barcodes
  • ATMs
  • smoke alarms
  • MRI scanners
  • in vitro fertilization
  • space shuttle
  • mammal cloning
  • Kevlar
  • post-it notes
  • roller blades
  • scanning tunneling microscopes
  • high-temperature superconductors
  • disposable contact lenses
  • Viagra
  • hybrid cars

ad nauseam
