- Come of Age (turning 18 Years old): 2013 - 2027
The generation born completely within the technological age, war on terror, and multiculturalism. This generation is the first true global culture as their characteristics and trend is more uniform across the globe as they become the most open minded generation to date.
The earliest will vaguely remembers the 20th century, little affinity (mental age factor) or no memory of September 11th 2001, and the last golden years of TV animations in the western world, in Asia and elsewhere, Rise in standard of living, exposure to Computer and Internet and grow up in the reduction in moral, traditional values.
Comparable to grandparents Silent Generations and parents, Generation X. As of 2010 however, Generation Z culture are rising, they are predicted to be more cautious, more conservative and connected than ever with everyone around the globe. Despite the trend of them conforming to the Postmodernism counterculture or "spoiled culture". Generation Z's awareness will certainly derived them from the former generation mindset. They will help shape the fragile 21st century (Though not pioneer them like Gen Y) into a new understanding and approach of the global society.
Note: These measurements are cross referenced considerations mental development age and memories, significant events, and culture conditioning, regardless of their affinity towards former culture interest or attitude
Matt: That's so Generation Z!

Generation X: Long live Cobain!!!!
Generation Y/Millenial: Who needs Peace and Grunge when you have Lady Gaga!!!

People born in Gen Z, the oldest part of the generation, according to astrology, have a Pluto in Scorpio, who share the same characteristics as Generation Y. Pluto in Scorpio lasted until 1995. The bulk of the Generation from 1996 (year my brother was born) and onward, have a Pluto in Sagittarius. The generation thing ended in 2010, during the timeframe when the economy totaled.
We are new to the world but we operate on computers well enough. We are difficult to understand because we just started out in the world. We will most likely repeat the events a few generations past. Thanks to the current generation and the recession fucking us over. Hell, we use the internet alot and we know a ton of facts.
They say from 1995 onward is Generation Z. But this generation is new-ish, and there is an even newer generation now. By the time SOPA, PIPA. or ACTA passes, this will be a new generation to be named. But for now, I say let time pass and let us update Wikipedia regularly.
