I came across this interesting article about Gen-X in the work place. Being firmly rooted in the Gen-X generation and a consumer of notable Gen-X related material from Douglas Coupland to Reality Bites, I find the list to be absolutely rooted in truth from the impatience in the work place to juggling home and work.

    Epic Systems together with Beemode ( have developed a Data Visualization software "Trend Compass" almost ready to be released soon. It is an extension to Gapminder which was invented by a Swedish Professor. You can view it :


    It is a new concept in viewing statistics and trends in an animated way and viewing 4 axis instead of just the traditional X and Y axis. It could be used in analysis, research, presentation etc.

    Here are some links :
    - A project we did with Princeton University on US unemployment :

    - US Population from 2004 till 2030 for ages 0 - 83 focus on Baby Boomers and turn the Trails off (uncheck)

    - April 2008 Media Monitoring on Cars and Beverages TV ads (ads Duration vs Repetition per Day over time) :

    - Ads Monitoring on TV Sattelite Channels during April 2008. Pick Duration (Ads daily duration) vs Repeat (Ads repetition per day).

    Next one is my favourite it covers a lot (change the X and Y coordinates) and it accumulates his earnings too, 43 Million USD :

    I hope you could evaluate it and give me your comments. So many ideas are there.

    You can test the software by uploading data on our website and getting the corresponding Flash charts. This is for a limited number of users.
