You have to grow older, but you don't have to grow up...

We're Generation X'ers who spent our childhood immersed in the music, movies, games, and pop culture of the 70s, 80s, & 90s, and all that stuff shaped who we are today as adults. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Gen X'ers who refuse to grow up.

Backtrack: GenX Future Predictions

When Generation X dreamed about the future, we pictured either a technological paradise with flying cars, helpful robots, no illness and rocket ships or we pictured a wasteland brought on by some human action. Neither came true (luckily in the latter), but we’re still a ways off from where we thought we would be by now. In this Backtrack we look at what we thought the future would hold and discuss some of thethings we thought we would have and don’t, and what we have that we never would have predicted.
