It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

Eh, yes and no.


While I cannot disagree with much of what's said in this presentation a lot of it seems to me to be of the, "Kids, what's wrong with 'em these days?!!," trope that's been around far longer than I have.


Humanity will go on, because there will always be those who swim when tossed into "sink or swim" situations and there are plenty of "that generation" swimming.  People are awfully resilient.


This guy also ascribes a lot more significance to non-significant behavior than I would.   It's not only the generation he bemoans that plops their smartphones on the table in meetings before they start.  It's a question of what one does with it once it's there.  [And that's but one example.]


I also find it particularly ironic that this guy appears to be a part of the generation he's decrying (or at least awfully close to it if not a part of it).

Back in the mid 70's, many of my fellow students and even the professors were appalled that I was recording them on a cassette recorder.  Once I explained that it was so I could transpose their lectures later into notes to be used during tests, other students caught on and started doing it too.  Today, I use a tablet to record some classes ( yes, at 60 plus I still go to school) so as to not miss any parts of lectures.  I attend classes to keep myself abreast of the new technology and many college courses (post-grad) are filled with terminology I have to look up to get full understanding of the lectures, which can't be done immediately and the rest of the lecture is lost unless I record it all.  Many courses allow the use of notes during tests so it has become very important to have them available.  I say notes, hand written, not on a tablet or phone as no devices are allowed during tests.  It has also be come essential in two courses as the professors are multi-tasking, writing material on a white board while lecturing on something different, so the recordings are half the class material and the written info on the  board can be copied.
