  1. In relation to Andreessen’s Post-Boomer observation, it’s relevant to note that numerous major media outlets, including The New York Times, NBC, The Wall Street Journal, and Newsweek Magazine, have all concluded in recent weeks, that Obama is specifically part of Generation Jones, and is not a Boomer or Xer. I recently heard a panel of generational experts on a radio program discuss this specific question for around an hour, and they overwhelmingly concluded that Obama is a GenJoneser (lost generation between Boomers and Xers). This isn’t surprising, given that Obama was born in the middle of the GenJones birth years (1954-1965), and those born toward the middle of a generation tend to most personify it. As experts have shown, Barack’s bio and political worldview is quintessential GenJones.
