Generation Y Should Build New Cyber Communities

Why Generation Y is Causing the Great Migration of the 21st Century | PlaceShakers and NewsMakers: "The net result? Generation Y wants to be more connected and less isolated than previous generations. They manifest this desire in their full-on embrace of social media and their desire to live in places where they can be around others; i.e., the densest, most active, areas of cities."

I recommend the site from which this salient text comes.

This is of course the vanguard of the recoil from sprawl. Densest is the key word in the squib above. Below where I now write, the street (Broadway) is filled with milling diversity. It would lose much of its pizzazz without a hefty generation Y component. The need for proper density is universal and philosophically apt. What is needed is to imagine that most live at a density if 5-19K to the square mile, on no more than four graded levels and that these hives of density be car free, walkable,. From that simple sentence the entire restructuring of the globe derives. Past oil and cars. Past cogito ergo to new forms of gemeinschaft.
