This blog has a somewhat outdated title I know.
Im a child of generation X, raised when it was unusual to show disrespect for authority figures (police, teachers, anyone in uniform) and the phrase respect your elders was still commonplace. I grew up respecting those who were older and wiser.
So, whats prompted this burst of nostalgia? I was reading a post on LinkedIn earlier this week, one with lots of comments making me pause to see what people were talking about. The post was innocuous, a simple request for people with project management skills to get in touch; the comments, a debate about the pros and cons of choosing someone young, inexperienced and cheap versus someone older, wiser and presumably therefore, expensive.
