No, the technology available to youths today has become so pervasive
that the majority of non-techies is using it. There are still the geeks
and nerds sitting in the back room playing with technological toys, they
just into Ham Radio. They think Ham Radio is a technological dead end
and a just a bunch of old guys talking to each other about their medical
problems. Sadly, for the most part, they're right.

<tounge firmly in cheek>As opposed to the good old days when all the "in
crowd" had Ham Radio licenses. Back in the 60s and 70s technology was
embraced by everyone! In high school the quarterback won the big game,
then headed back home to work some DX on 40M. </tounge firmly in cheek>
