Nic Marks: The Happy Planet Index

Our class watched a video of Nic Marks on ted.com. He relates the environmental movement & our general happiness level. It’s mostly about our happiness, though. Well, here’s the video.
Oh, and if you want to do something interesting: View subtitles > Japanese.

I’ve always wondered what the “next generation” (considered to be anyone born on or after 1982) would be called. Today I found out (a possible name).

It’s not just the “next generation,” it’s the “Net Generation.” (Tapscott, 1998)

Also, the “Millennials,” but that doesn’t sound quite as interesting to me.
