Generation\ Dot\ X

alt. Dot X Generation, or Dot X'er.
A group of people graduated from college after the burst of the Dotcom bubble, with abundance of computer skills but no decent career opportunities to apply them to. A predicament reminiscent of the one faced by Generation X. Disappointed but happy that they did not make a Dotcom fool out of themselves. A general feeling of missed opportunities like they showed up to a party too late, only to see empty bowls of caviar and shrimp cocktails. Unlike the Dotcommers who were able to save enough money to move to Thailand to hibernate until the economy recovers, this group of college graduates have no choice but to accept jobs that are substantially below their expectations.

Those Dot X'ers are paying off their student loans for their Media Communications degrees by working at restaurants.
