I really enjoyed that. Thank you for posting it Irene. At first the little spiel reminded me of when Steve Jobs said that Americans don't read, and I was kind of bummed out. But imagine my surprise when it switched. Great video.

Really sweet ~ and quite profound display of the generation conflict and the marketing that gets created from that misconception.

As the world continue to evolve at a really fast pace, the communication between the generation becomes really hard. I guess it's always been the case, but the last 60 years has change so quickly that it seems the gap is even greater.

And in that mis-communication we loose a lot of wisdom!

This is very cool and promising. I have a 10 year old who is caught right in the middle of that battle between what is trendy and what has content. Everyday she's bombarded with content from the Disney juggernaut and other sources. Thankfully, she likes to read and write stories and is part of a program at school that logs her reading time (at least 30 minutes a day). She's up to 95 hours this year so far.

Thanks again Irene. Have a great day!

Gene -- Man, I'm thinking about making a log like that for myself. It's so easy to get caught up in work reading which is so much bits-and-pieces.
