Time, technology, and millennials

There are plenty of people that think that millennials are a different breed of human. These people seem to think that they are humanus-millennialus. In truth, they are just like the rest of us. The difference is technology.

As a tool of social progress, the camera in our smartphones is probably more impactful than any other currently out there. With live video streaming apps like Periscope and Meerkat, we don’t just view these images later, but feel the very essence of a situation in real-time. How can you watch harm happening and not feel some desire to ameliorate it? This is not a millennial thing, but rather a human impulse.
