Our past is present

From The Wilson Quarterly: "Our lives are increasingly lived online, where we are limited neither by time nor place. The difference between Millennials (those born between 1981 and 1997) and Generation Z (those born in 1998 and after) is that, while that first group remembers a time before the Internet, the latter are digital natives. Their place is both everywhere and nowhere. Their place is actually no place at all, but rather a space — cyberspace. With eyes focused on the refugee crisis in the Middle East, we can sometimes forget that even our own advanced societies are producing people who are increasingly rootless, unsettled, and in a constant state of wandering. Like Proust, 'our destination is no longer a place, rather a new way of seeing.'"
