From time to time I get asked about the name of this blog.
The quick answer? When I started this website in 2008, there were four generations of Adams boys alive, with an average of 27 years between them.
Thus, 27gen – energized by the steady, deliberate journey in generational learning.
Our “history” spanned the first transatlantic telephone call (from NYC to London) the year my father was born to smartphones now that connect the world in an instant.
In other words, there is a lot of history in play: things that have happened, things that are happening, and things that will happen.
And it is all connected.
Here’s a better explanation:
This is my son Jonathan, at two years of age, obviously having a good time at my parent’s house.
He turned 40 this week.
This is my grandson Jack (Jonathan’s son) at two years of age, obviously having a good time playing at his house.
He turned 13 last week.
Some things never change…
Some things are always changing…
I want to make sure I understand the difference.
