Depends on where you're looking from. Kids actually do still have their fads and whatnot. It's just simply not quite as apparent as it used to be as it's generally on the net. Entire mini-languages are being built all the time...creation of funky words is a constant flow online from teenagers. Sup, w00t, (god help us) kewl, oh snap, and the list goes on and on. Because kids have as much influences upon them as they do in their physical world, physical trends are less apparent. If anything, I've noticed that the kids that live split between an online world and an offline one, tend to be more unique in their styles. I suspect that the trend for youth now is to be more their own person.

Actually, it's not totally lost. I've run into alot of teenagers online that listen to a great deal of 70's music. Hard to imagine, I know.

What is considered to be mainstream music has changed. Rock now is what would have been considered industrial or punk a decade ago. It is now just considered rock. Hip hop has also moved into a much heavier listener base. Bubblegum pop has been delegated to pre-teens for the most part. Another drastic change with youth is the perception of gaming and computers itself. A boy who plays computer games and talks online does not immediately equate a geek at school. I know that this is a dramatic shift in thinking from when I was growing up.

It does seem stagnant but, as I've said above, there are dramatic changes occuring in our youth that are not easily apparent. I noted these changes simply by being a female gamer in a large, male dominated gaming community for around 5 years. Kids have changed, dramatically.

I'm curious about this, too. Considering all the technology that is at so many people's fingertips, surely something great will happen.
