UCI ceased to exist about eight years ago. So your idea of "did" is not even vaguely useful.

I couldn't disagree more, when I went back as a mature student a few years ago all the kids (who'd be in their 20s now) were working at least one job, volunteering in at least one scheme and were way more confident and put together at their age than my generation were (I was born late 70s).

My 15 year old and his mates are so clued in and aware of themselves and others.


I love young people, we're leaving them with an awful burden globally and I think we should just support them however we can.

Phoning people at specific times. You knew everyone's routine. There was no mobile phone or catch-up TV so you had to phone someone's house when they weren't at football or something good wasn't on TV. Every social meeting was organised in advance. I don't think kids are missing out by not having mobiles or catch up TV but it doesn't help their organisational or communication skills.

Reading maps and memorising routes to get from A to B. Cursing the lack of road signs and bad directions!

Using a rotary dial phone. Using a pay phone. Relying on a book or an encyclopedia for your information.
Instant Communications in general is the massive change

Wow, you just sound like an older version of the newer generation, some sort of hybrid.
