In all seriousness though, I also think our young genaration can learn a lot from the Baby Boomers around us. They are used to a very important form of communication that we often cannot see when we use technology: body language. Even in engineering this is an important form of communication. Engineering, especially Bob’s kind (Aerospace), requires teams to achieve success, and teams only work when people work together…in person or remotely. Let’s not atrophy our ‘old fashioned’ forms of communication (like body language) by becoming complacent in our growing technology bubble. But, let’s also adapt and use technology to our benefit.
