Barely related to this topic:

The job I have today did not exist in any form when I was born. Nor did I know it existed when I started college.

I was walking down an aisle at work and noticed everyone staring at a flat screen and thought how interesting it is how we all work now. Where I work, everyone has a desk and area (cube), but most of the attention is on the flat screen. Something that wasn't even there when I was in college, either (the only screen was a TV back then).

I was at a cyber safety seminar for parents of teens / tweens a few years ago. A speaker commented off topic that the way students study and do homework today is quite different from how we did it. A typical student will be listening to an MP3 player, intermittently texting with an average of three buddies, and watching a YouTube video, all while solving math problems and doing a fairly decent job of it. A teen's ability to multitask today may evolve into a very important job skill.

Middle Managers may need to be aware of this and understand how to leverage it, not discourage it.
