Gen Xers – or, at least, those of us born before 1985 – have a responsibility, according to an interesting Quartz piece about Michael Harris:

Being in this situation puts us in a privileged position.”If we’re the last people in history to know life before the internet, we are also the only ones who will ever speak, as it were, both languages. We are the only fluent translators of Before and After.”

Harris is the author of The End of Absence: Reclaiming What We’ve Lost in a World of Constant Connection, which is my (digital) pile of books to read next.
