GI Generation

2005-11-17 00:00

  The G.I. generation (born 1901-1924) is often referred to as the "Greatest Generation." Unlike people from younger generations, G.I.'s themselves probably don't spend much time on computers, surfing the web. They aren't likely to have blogs or bother to express their opinions about every subject matter under the sun in online discussion forums. But it's not unheard of - here is one weblog by a bona fide member of the G.I. generation - living in Florida, of course!

  But there are G.I.'s who have caught the wave of the computer revolution, such as billionaire John Sperling, founder of the University of Phoenix Online. Certainly the many senior citizens who collect Social Security pensions are living off the fruits of the digital economy. And let's not forget the late Ronald Reagan, who presided over the country during the rise of the personal computer, and whose triumph in the Cold War was to no small degree a consequence of the microprocessor.

  Milton Friedman Samuel Huntington Irving Kristol

  Some G.I.'s who are well respected in their fields still have their opinions held in high regard and consulted in the context of modern affairs. They might even be published in current online journals on the web, weighing in on the debates over the murky fate of our nation in the unforseeable future.
