No, not that 24.

I was just on a call with a customer of ours - a large professional services firm.  One of the side comments he made was that the average age of employees in their company is 24.  


And they expect every IT app to run as fast and be as easy to use as Google.

(Oh - and they only are going to stay at the company for 3 years on average, so you'd better get them up to speed and productive as quickly as possible, and you better be sure that when they leave you can easily transition their work and share their knowledge with everyone who is going to come after them.)
