Comment Re:Baby Boomers/Bummers - a Useless Generation (Score 1) 182

Sorry, your argument is simply wrong, PCs were just a small step from previous giant leaps: Correct me if I am wrong, but weren't the inventors of transistor (, and also Von Neuman, Alan Turing, and the rest, all Bummers' parents. Furthermore, ICs ( were all started and developed before the Bummers. I do not want to diminish their generational achievements, and they were some significant ones, but if you take into account that they were 3 times more numerous than their parents and did 1/3 of their parent's achievements, it becomes obvious what a slacker generation they were. History will undoubtedly judge them very harshly.
