It seems like there are a lot of experts on Y2K on Twitter recently who were actual toddlers during Y2K.

Got "OK, boomer'ed" by a millennial economic analyst who relies primarily on wikipedia, ther morning of my 41st birthday.

I'm reminded of this as I see a guy many people claim it's a walking violation being promoted in three Dallas Innovates feature on Dallas startups.
