Consider whether free Wi-Fi access to the Internet isn’t becoming a factor in public relations. That thought occurred at a McDonalds the other day when the staffers were wearing headsets to talk to each other, but customers couldn’t access the Internet (other than by paying telephone charges) while enjoying their meals.

Brian Solis was a panelist on the new generation of workers, who are rethinking a lot about what’s important to them. “Their value system is profoundly different,” Solis writes, “and they’re forming relationships with products and services based on the things they value and appreciate.” What are they? Read the post as an introduction to an Entrepreneur panel discussion on where we’re headed. “The older generation,” Solis writes, “is making decisions based on their experience and how they went through life – going to college, getting a job, getting married, buying a house and buying a car.
