William Straus and Neil Howe's clustering of millennials based on birth years, the generational classification was referred to as Generation Y, and muddled the fair representation of those who experienced their adolescence and cognitive-development years in step with the nascent phase of home-based Internet access technology.

While often lumped together with millennials (as defined by Straus and Howe), the developmental phase of social interaction, which involved information technology's burgeoning impact on society, was overlooked. Generation Y represented the crossroads between millennials who were well immersed in computer technology even as far as experiencing an institutionalization of computer education in academic curricula and Generation X members who were heavily immersed in broadcast media's influence and yet largely uninitiated in computer technology. Generation Y represents the link between the non-digital age society shaped by Generation X, as adolescents (MTV Generation), and the dawn of the Internet age that saw the transitioning of society to easily accessible online communities (Bulletin board system, MIRC, Yahoo! Groups, Internet forum) especially during the introduction of dial-up Internet access to households.

Gen Y entangled pop culture and digital community-building through bulletin board systems, online forums, website mailing groups, mIRC, ICQ, and other electronic modes of communication (predecessors to social media) into today's digital age.
Generation Y and Generation Z cannot be lumped together and be called Millennials; the two groups are distinct and the eggheads who said so are idiots.

-Millennial or Millennials

A media popularized term for a generation of people born in western culture who came to adulthood in the early 21st century.

Often confused for being tech savvy or capable in life skills, millennials are more often incapable with life skills that earlier generations are commonly more adept at, such as changing car tires, filling out paperwork, hooking up entertainment centers or reading usage agreements and contracts on websites and smart phone apps before agreeing to them.

Millennials are more often only functional with contemporary front end usage of modern technology while being confused and incapable with more practical applications and the service of hardware.

A small minority of Millennials with inherited wealth gave rise to the "gig" or "shared" economy bubble. Much of the perception of millennials centers around this minority among the generation who attain great wealth from crowd funding, confidence scam investments and inheritances that are soon squandered on unsustainable and impractical business models.

The Millennials are for the most part very deficient in common life skills, sustainability and practical capability.
I just saw a Millennial trying to change a tire and add oil to his car. He gave up after dumping transmission fluid in the oil intake and trying to jack his fender until it crumpled.

A millennial is a person born from the years 1982 and 2004. Millennials are generally considered to be self-absorbed and spoiled, and even if the spoiling is not their fault, they still get blamed for being shallow.
Those millennials and their manbuns and their hip-hop, and their instagrams!!!

Pretty much the most spoiled generation in american history. Thinks that the rest of the world is going to by in on their progressive and socialistic viewpoint. Not really their fault since they haven't known hard political times yet, and have been brainwashed by the liberal left media.
Boomer: We've gotta vote for Rubio this election! He'll save America.

Millennials: I'm offended , why do we "have" to vote for him? Are you forcing me? I'm a democrat...
Boomer: ...your naivety is amusing, and frightening.
