Brendan Eich on Gen Jones:
Born in 1961, Brendan is proud of his identity as a member of Generation Jones, and he’s publicly brought up Gen Jones several times. In November 2021, he tweeted to his over 200,000 Twitter followers: “Good news, I’m Generation Jones. I identified in the past as GenX. Main thing is to stay young at heart, even in a sometimes-awkward sense…”  He responded in December 2022 to some criticism of Boomers by saying: “Hey, I’m Gen Jones not Boomer, give me a pass ok! ;-)”
