Beloit College has just published its Mindset List for the Class of 2009. Interesting stuff. For those who aren't familiar with it, the list describes some of the experiences that shape the current crop of college freshmen. Some of the items are amusing/nostalgic (#71 - Miss Piggy and Kermit have always dwelt in Disneyland), while others demonstrate how much they take technological advances for granted (#3 - Heart-lung transplants have always been possible).
It gets easier and easier as we get older to forget how much the world we grew up in has changed in the intervening years (man, does that sound like my parents talking - I'm getting old...).
