Generación flash mob

A veces intento imaginar qué nombre le pondrán más adelante, en la década del '10 ó del '20, a nuestra generación ¿G-Internet?, ¿G-Wireless?, ¿G-Posmo?, ¿G-Net?....creo que Rheinghold acierta al apostar por resumir todas las anteriores en Generación Flash Mob.

SOCIAL CAPITAL : "The degree to which a group uses mechanisms such as social networks, trust, reciprocity and shared norms and values to facilitate collaboration and cooperation." Social capital can't be hoarded by an individual the way economic or cultural capital can; it is valuable only because it circulates. (ling & Putnam, en Rheinghold).
