The Passenger
From the Editor:

The Passenger is the journal of a generation that doesn’t know whether it’s a generation at all. We’re here to reveal the underground river of commonality that unites us as the world’s first 24-hour, global generation.

We are not “Generation Y” or “The Millenials” or any other marketing epithet. We are the harbingers of a new era when a true global village, yet unborn, will take shape. We are the first to come of age fluent in the Internet, infused with connectivity, never alone. Technology has outpaced our parents, even our older siblings, but the only world we have ever known is the world of constant flux. We therefore have the potential to be the first generation never left in the dust.

This magazine is the first artifact of a multimedia collaboration of the writers, artists, thinkers and leaders of our emerging generation. The magazine and our Web site, iamthepassenger.com, are dedicated to home-grown discussion of our own lives and times. And we’re growing.

We want your stories, your art and your ideas. Answer the call. Write! Contribute! Open up a Passenger bureau on your campus. Together we will assert our mastery of the era of rapid change.
