A Few Great Links

I haven’t written anything substantial in the past couple of days because I have been working some long hours at my day job (look forward to some new stuff tomorrow because it’s Victoria Day here in Canada). So to feed the gap in my site I have a couple really cool links.

First is a Canadian geek podcast / blog called This Week in Geek, I suggest listening to the most recent podcast where the host, Steve, interviews world famous geek Wil Wheaton (aka Wesley Crusher from Star Trek The Next Generation, but don’t hold that against him, he’s a really interesting guy).

While you are listening to Wil Wheaton talk about his career and newfound love of blogging check out Read Write Web’s article Why Generation Y is Going to Change the Web, it’s one of the first really insightful views of my generation I have ever read. Instead of labeling us as slackers, or a generation of spoiled brats, they examine how “Generation Y” has been raised and shaped by technology and changing trends, and how it has made us a significant group that will have a huge impact on industry, the Internet, and the workforce.
