Generation Why?


Announcing a special joint project by authors JD Cowan, David V. Stewart, and yours truly …


Generation Why?

There is an epidemic in the modern age: a crisis of meaning. Why is it the world we were promised back in the 1980s and 1990s seems so far away now? Whatever happened to those hopeful kids from back then? Whatever happened to Generation Y?

From authors Brian Niemeier (Don’t Give Money to People Who Hate You), David V Stewart (The Keys to Prolific Creativity), and JD Cowan (The Pulp Mindset), comes this collection of essays about a lost generation trapped in a modernity they were never prepared for.

Read on and discover how Madison Avenue shenanigans, social instability, mindless progress, and general ineptitude, led an entire generation of people through the cracks–and how we can find them again.



Once consigned by Boomer ad men to the dustbin of history, Generation Y is reemerging as distinct demographic cohort, and people are starting to notice.
