In practical terms is there anything the net generation can uniquely do because Mandela existed? Our future generation can have all the great dreamers of the 20th C to celebrate joyously. When dad and I scribbled the first future hiostory of net generation in 1984http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html it seemed quite simple to wish that the innovation of the net could be used to unite humanity's greatest dreams round future goals and realities.
I would like to be wrong but even though I have long-standing friends hubbing out of s.africa, I can't find a particular way that mandela's legacy is impacting social busienss media or the way youth's productivity from 2010s onwards is being designed.
