What next? (sounds pretty good)

According to a Pew Research Center report, the coming American generation, Generation Next, is the most comfortable with the tools of technology, more tolerant of different lifestyles (including same-sex couples and marriage), politically more liberal, more global in world view, and less cynical of government and political leaders than previous generations.

The report is drawn from polling data from Sept. 6-Oct. 2, 2006 and includes "extensive generational analysis of Pew Research Center surveys dating back to 1987."
For purposes of this report, Generation Next is made up of 18-25 year-olds (born between 1981 and 1988). Generation X was born between 1966 and 1980 and ranges in age from 26-40. The Baby Boom generation, born between 1946 and 1964, ranges in age from 41-60. Finally, those over age 60 (born before 1946) are called the Seniors...

The report is divided into four main sections: (1) Outlook and World View, (2) Technology and Lifestyle, (3) Politics and Policy, and (4) Values and Social Issues.
