To move forward you might consider partnering with a translator.
Anastasia Goodstein links out to approximately 205 sites from Totally Wired, a Web site that she created to help adults decode what teens are doing online and with technology, and to complement a soon to be published book by the same name. I felt like I hit the jackpot landing on Anastasia's site! While the fact that I am not familiar with most of those 205 (other than the social networks) sites demonstrates that I am an ole geezer, it more importantly opens a panoramic view into the intriguing world of the connected generation.
Anastasia injects her take on teen trend observations and predictions formulated by the Zandl Group. As a Gen Y'er dad, I find her insight allows me a slightly different but beneficial viewpoint. According to my own observations, Anastasia's take on the future here is most believable!
Ypulse is Anastasia's other site. It provides news and commentary about Gen Y for media and marketing professionals. I highly recommend that you spend some time and check it out.
