Every year, one of these comes out, where a list is posted somewhere on the internet of all the things that the freshman this year will not know, or do know, or will never know. I always find this list very interesting, kinda puts things in perspective.
Granted I am not that old, but still, I have a kid, and I watch her grow up every day, and it's funny to realize that someday, there will be a generation of children that don't know what music stores are (like, going to the store to buy a CD), kids never knew what it was like to have to carry around a "walkman" (like a cassette, or a cd). They will never know what the "command line" is. Or having to switch disks to boot a computer and things like that.
Here is this year's list.
