Lots of interesting comments! I really enjoyed this thread. Two things I'd add:

  1. I think "technology" should really be referred to as "a technology". For instance, judging Gen Z against a technology (like a photocopier) that predates their birth seems a bit unfair. As a Gen X, I don't think it was fair to be judged for growing up with calculators instead of slide-rulers. I love old tech, but I'm not kidding myself, it's old tech not the only tech.

  2. Also shouldn't the organisation adapt instead? If new hires are more comfortable watching videos for training vs reading procedures, or taking photos of things with their phone instead of the photocopier, isn't that just fine. It's not my preference, but isn't it best for me to adapt rather than them.

It's not that I don't have generational pride. I like my generation, we were and are adaptable. I just can't imagine that the subsequent generations won't be as adaptable to things I can't even imagine yet.

For years I've used Feedly, but recently tried "Feeder" on Android. I like the minimalist and no ad aspects. Even better it has a "fetch full article" function that works even for some paywalled sites. - downside is no website.

oh awesome! thanks for that link - I like that. For me, I like jumping around from rss readers to kbin to mastodon. It seems like the major news orgs might flock to threads. I can't be bothered to sign up.... and I don't want an instagram account. When threads federates, i'll just follow nytimes on threads through mastodon and be done with it. Seems like a bad sign for twitter.

What Reddit Got Wrong (www.eff.org)

After weeks of burning through users’ goodwill, Reddit is facing a moderator strike and an exodus of its most important users. It’s the latest example of a social media site making a critical mistake: users aren’t there for the services, they’re there for the community. Building barriers to access...
