Uttercast: Mindset

utterli-image

Look at the patch in this picture. 1981 seems like another era, but I was actually a teenager when I attended the event indicated on this gaudy piece of embroidery.

Why this photo? I have been thinking of mindset lately. Mindset, as in Beloit College’s "Mindset List" at http://www.beloit.edu/mindset, designed to remind teachers of the worldview of incoming Freshmen. What is the worldview of someone born after I got this patch? We’re both adults, but we both grew up in different worlds.

I’m not just talking about growing up with technology either. I have lived through three recessions. Recalling the last one, I remember folks a little younger than I had little concept of what was happening.

How do you relate to other generations? Do you consider "mindset?"
