SF Fears Jumping Shark

New, 6 comments

As a generation of text messaging, YouTubing, A.D.D.-riddled "Millennials" reaches maturation (in body, at least) some pundits wonder whether sleepy San Francisco will be able to hold their attention. Director of USC's Center for Telecom Management at the Marshall School of Business predicts: “And the danger for San Francisco is it will stay locked into a sort of cultural attitude and milieu of the prior generations. Boomers all think fondly of the Summer of Love and Gen-X’ers love the edginess of San Francisco. But none of that is appealing to Millennials. There’s a possibility San Francisco will move away from being a major cultural influence and become more of an outlier. Young people will think S.F. is passé." [The Snitch]
