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.
