I'm one of those that is on the cusp of the millennial generation. In high school and college I was really interested in computers had jobs at tech companies degrees in computer science, playing techno music with trackers etc., but these didn't go mainstream until a few years later, and by older generations fall into the category of "toys". In many ways I identify with the younger generation, shopping/socializing online, however I feel that this leads to a situation where I am perceived as immature by older generations, because the younger generation feels that computers/cell phones etc are "tools". It doesn't help that I am within ten pounds of my high school weight, and health conscious. Beyond the simplistic techno I see the big effect on music is going to be a vaporization of cultural borders with people making musical connections around the world, and I look forward to this. Are these exotic percussion instruments "toys" or "tools" just a trend or the future?
