I Generation is the winner! See voting results below.
According to the Generation Y article on Wikipedia, Generation X is a term which was "originally coined as a pejorative label." X is also a common way to refer to something that is unnamed as well (or as called in Wikipedia, a Placeholder name).
There's a debate going on in naming Generation Y, so right now, with it's name as an unstable placeholder, it's the current "Generation X," so to speak. We can help stabilize the name for the generation of this time though (those born between (1976-81) – (1995-2001))
The Thumb Generation
While adding to the stability of the name for this generation, we will also be helping determine the name most are familiar with, so that when referring to this generation, we can choose the name most recognized name to best ensure understanding.
