I think for the most part Gen Y are more than happy to give away their privacy and civil liberties and let someone else (who doesn't really have their best interests at heart), control everything for them.
At least, that has been the pattern with all Gen Y's I know..
Quite scary actually... Reminds me of that film "wake up call"...

How do you define this phrase when applied the younger generation?
Most so-called "tech savvy" youth i know only use their devices for the littany of social applications and media like Facebook, Twitter and other networks and are actually rather indiscriminate in broadcasting as much of themselves to the world; they are actually the best, most marketable products for those companies to sell to their increasingly targeted advertisers... (I don't even have a facebook account and i get constantly asked by my peers and acquaintainces to get one...)
Ask one of them to diagnose/fix a problem or delve into the Registry/Windows Internals, and they'll just give you a blank stare.. Protection? Malwarebytes Anti-Malware? Microsoft Security Essentials? Whats that got to do with Facebook or Twitter? It's not hip so it's not cool to learn about those things..
(JaidynM, you are one of the few exceptions on this site of course.. you know more than most grown adults when it comes to matters of computing and technology)
EDIT:- Looks like the article got taken down for some reason.
