Changing times

This is in response to Ina and Jim's words.

I just turned 29 today, but I get the feeling that I am one of the younger ones into bulbs and (rock) gardening in general (let alone the forum). Things like Ian Young's Bulb Log, PBS wiki and PBS forum are perfect for me because I can easily access them with my phone, which is really just a compact computer with a phone app (smartphones).  My free time is little and I must make every moment in my day (and night) count. I have a 1 year old baby girl who I gladly spend most of my free time with, a full time job, and an ever growing list of house chores from my wife. Yet I love bulbs, tending to my rock garden, and expanding my forest garden with all sorts of interesting species mostly from seed. My point in telling you all this is that I probably represent many of the "Millennial" generation by being so busy, thus not having the time or extra income to be a part of any of the great plant societies. I may even be one of few of my generation to have such an obsession with plants
  and growing species from seed.

I do wish the PBS offered more ways to interconnect with other members (or an easier way to share pictures, without a third party like Flikr)
