How important is it for the younger generation to be involved with technology?

James Lampke

It would sure make things easier. One of the biggest interests for me to help grow the younger generation into technology is the evolution of technology. Technology is evolving the way it is now and you look at some of the bigger cities and tech hubs that have access to this talent to continuously develop new technologies and Jacksonville is on its way! It’s not there yet, but how do we get there. What we need to do is create that interest. We give them an opportunity to gain that wow factor of why this is cool, why this is hip. This is something that you’re gonna get these kids into at five, six, seven years old.

Justin Kane

Kids are growing up with it. It’s becoming easier, even for us who are responsible for managing it, It’s becoming easier for us to manage it. Technology is becoming easier to set up and deploy! That being said when it comes to getting kids interested in an earlier age, they all have access to this technology much more than many of us did as kids. No doubt that we didn’t have the exposure to it. We picked it up later on because we were interested in it. But now they have access to it. I mean there are babies watching YouTube on an iPad.
