The Baby Boomer generation is arguably the most powerful generation around. A lot of our business leaders and top politicians are from this age group. If you are one of this crew, there are a lot of things then you might do just a tad different then the rest of us.
But being a boomer is more than just how old you are. It is not just about age; its' a state of mind. If you are really a boomer, you grew up watching a black and white TV, well before the dawn of cable. Your parents think you are a genius when it comes to technology, but your kids think you don't know anything about it at all.
You are not sure if a "blog" is the same thing as a "weblog," you know how to double dutch, and you have no idea why it is so hard to find a payphone these days. If you are a guy, you are probably a pretty decent golfer or used to be, and if you are a woman you probably either have a bunch of diamonds, or you really wish you did.
