Early Adopter: Techie Teens Review Jason Calacanis’ Launch Conference

After this week’s Launch conference, where tech impresario Jason Calacanis played host to dozens of new companies vying for a piece of the spotlight, I caught up with the conference’s youngest attendees at their own semi-official after-party (all the other parties were 21 and up).

After a few rounds of tea, I asked them to share their post-millennial perspectives on Launch, start ups, and consumer tech culture.

They angstily obliged.

Here’s a short video with Max Swisher, 13, Hunter Owens, 19, and Benjamin Garrett, 20, riffing on whats wrong, whats new, and whats next in tech:

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
